Install programs directly on the WES7 device?

Hi - I have got a simple question...

Is it possible for an administrator to install small programs and/or tools directly on a Dell Wyse C90D7 WES7 device or are there any restrictions to what can be installed?

Thanks.

  • Did anyone answer? Of course you can install apps, up to the drive size limit. Not every app works on WES7, so try it.

    Try installing the app with the Write Filter on, if the app won't require a reboot. That way, any changes you make are temporary. If the app doesn't work, reboot it back to normal. Or, "Pull" a flash firware copy of your working image and reflash it after you test the app if things go badly.

    Most apps have wasteful install methods, so you need to alter the TEMP and TMP variables to use something other than Z:\ RAM drive, which is small. Setting it to a USB flash drive works for me, but seems slower than using the onboard flash. Beware of installers filling your C:, if you choose to use that.
