Copyright © 2019 EarthSoft, Inc • Modified: 31 May 2019
Some clients prefer to install and run EQuIS Professional from a network folder. By default, Microsoft .NET Code Security will prevent EQuIS from running successfully from a network folder. In order for EQuIS to run successfully, an administrator must first grant permissions on a workstation so Microsoft .NET Code Security will allow the application to execute successfully.
After installing EQuIS Professional to a network drive, an administrator must set the .NET security policy on each workstation. The instructions below use an example that assumes EQuIS Professional has been installed to a shared network drive located at \\SERVER1\EarthSoft\EQuIS. Use your actual network location when following these instructions.
1.Log on to the workstation as an Administrator.
2.Run .NET Framework 4.6 Configuration (from Administrative Tools menu).
3.Expand .NET Framework 4.6 Configuration.
4.Expand My Computer.
5.Expand Runtime Security Policy.
7.Expand Code Groups.
9.Right-click on All_Code and choose New ...
10.Name the group EQuIS (or some other name, if preferred).
11.Click Next >
12.Select URL as the condition type.
13.Enter the URL as the path to your network folder (with a trailing asterisk) as shown below.
1.Click Next >
2.Choose Use existing permission set: and select FullTrust.
3.Click Next >
After completing these steps, it is possible to successfully run EQuIS from the network folder.
