OrgPlus 9 - OrgPlus Plug-in Deployment

Summary:

You can automatically deploy OrgPlus Plug-in to computers throughout your organization using the Insperity web site or a private web server.

Procedure:

When publishing charts from OrgPlus for your intranet using the Publish to OrgPlus Plug-in wizard, you have some variations regarding the different ways in which OrgPlus Plug-in can be installed on the user computers for browser based viewing of charts.

The HTM "container" (just a simple HTM file) is something you would create only once: the first time you publish a chart. Then you could make edits like other pages on your intranet. The .ovx file, which is the actual chart, is updated each time you publish and is displayed by the container. Depending on how you choose to deploy OrgPlus Plug-in, you may or may not want AutoUpdate enabled.

Automatically Installing OrgPlus Plug-in, on Demand

The easiest way to deploy OrgPlus Plug-in is to check the HTM Container option in the screen shown below which will insert some code into the HTM container to fetch the OrgPlus Plug-in from www.orgplus.com and automatically install it. If you choose this option, the user will be prompted to install OrgPlus Plug-in (from www.orgplus.com) the first time they visit your intranet chart page. On subsequent visits, the chart will simply be displayed. If a new or improved version of OrgPlus Plug-in is released, your users will automatically be offered the option to update to the most recent version. This mechanism takes advantage of a version checker (hcinstall9.cab) to keep the download small while keeping the user's OrgPlus Plug-in in sync with the latest available from Insperity. To avoid being prompted on every visit to a chart page with the Insperity security certificate, the user can select "always trust content from Insperity".

Sample HTM "container" with AutoUpdate with update specific code shown in bold:

<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv='Content-Type' content='text/html; charset=utf-8'>
<title>Insperity Organization</title>
</head>
<body leftmargin=0 topmargin=0 rightmargin=0 bottommargin=0 scroll=yes>
<object id="IDX"
  CODEBASE="http://download.orgplus.com/downloads/op9/plugin/hcinstall9.cab#Version=9,0,1200,0"
classid="CLSID:C73881A4-E7F5-4ce4-B199-307EB127FE15" width="100%" height="100%">
<param name="url" value="Sub-chart1.ovx">
<embed src="Sub-chart1.ovx"
   pluginspage="http://download.orgplus.com/downloads/op9/plugin/nsplugin9inst.htm"
width="100%" height="100%"
   type="application/x-ovx">
</embed>
</object>
</body>
</html>

Alternately, if you are prevented by IS policy from downloading and installing Plug-ins from the web, you can allow users to install OrgPlus Plug-in from a setup file hosted locally on your intranet.

Using the same HTM container file as above, with a line edited to install OrgPlus Plug-in using plugin.cab from any server, you can have OrgPlus Plug-in automatically installed from your own intranet. In this example, the plugin.cab is on the intranet.mycompany.com server. Replace intranet.mycompany.com with the domain name or IP address of your intranet server. You can also simply use a network path to plugin.cab (e.g. " \\servername\viewer\plugin.cab").

Imaging User Computers with OrgPlus Plug-in

A third way to deploy OrgPlus Plug-in is to image end user machines using the ovsetup.exe OrgPlus Plug-in installer. IS departments will do this either by running scheduled remote maintenance and running ovsetup.exe on client machine silently (see ovsetup.exe command line options), or if the IS department re-images client machines, the ovsetup.exe install should be included in the pre-imaging process..
