The configuration database allows for easy deployment of the DLL and notes.ini entries by filling in a form for creating an install email by navigating to “Administration – Mailbased Install – New Mailbased Install”.
The install mail can be sent as button or stored form – the latter is usually better, as the install occurs immediately after opening the email (also when opening the install mail in the preview pane). Sending the MarvelClient install mail as a button decreases the initial success rate and greatly increases tracking and tracking overhead (who opened the email, who did not, who clicked on the button, who did not, ...).
Note that mail recipients who have stored forms disabled in their mail database will see the button instead.
The install mail is sent upon explicit confirmation when saving the mail based install document, which can be reused as often as needed: simply enter new recipients, save, send and close the install mail document.
Follow the instructions in the install email and in the field titled “Program Files” please attach the MarvelClient/MarvelZip DLL as mc.dll (as obtained in Install Option A above). Including file attachments in the email being sent ensures that installation also works offline such as when laptop users take the install mail with them when travelling but do not open it before being offline. The file attachments are automatically removed after successful installation, provided that the install mail is set to NOT be repeatable after a successfull install.
Also note that you do NOT need to configure any notes.ini settings at the end of the mailbased install configuration form - the install mail will automatically configure EXTMGR_ADDINS and MC_DB without any further settings.
The notes.ini configuration section at the end of the install mail may be useful if you want to configure other notes.ini settings along with the install.
