Windows installer is provided as an executable file, SAFEQ Cloudclient-x.x.x-setup.exe. A couple of steps are required to perform the installation:

1. Welcome screen of the installer

2. License text

3. Server connectivity parameters

  • Server address or host name – address or host name of the SAFEQ Cloud server to connect to. For “Local storage mode” the address should be the DNS of the SAFEQ Cloud primary server.
  • Account domain name – domain name of the target account. It can be found from SAFEQ Cloud Web UI
  • API keyAPI key from the account settings. If omitted the default (restricted) API key will be used. Default API key will be removed in the future product versions.
  • User authentication – user authentication type
  • Enable local storage and direct print job delivery – enable local storage operation mode
  • Enable offline installation – install PC client without registering or checking server connectivity. Please see section 7.9 for details.

4. Advanced options

  • Use pre-configured system certificate for secure communication – for TLS connectivity use the default certificate from the PC certificate store. NOTE: This option requires a managed public key infrastructure environment or a manually configured private key chain in the certificate store.
  • Certificate subject or issuer – search pattern to choose for a client certificate from the Windows certificate store.
  • Install AGPL Ghostscript – install AGPL Ghostscript software which is necessary for PCL6 printing
  • Create desktop icons for login and logout – create login and logout icons on the desktop. Clicking on login icon will prompt the user to login to PC client (if custom login type is activated). Clicking on logout button will perform PC client logout and delete the printers.
  • Automatically delete printers on PC session logout – when user logs out from the operating system or shuts down PC the printers will be removed.
