WorkItem:272038 - Add system level install capability to Word Integration Assistant installer


Issue Description:

The Word Integration Assistant is getting installed at a user level and not at a system level.

When installed, the Assistant is available at C:\Users\<user>\IBM\WordBridge and a registry key is created at the user level.

For machines that support multiple user accounts, the installer has to be run by each user in order to use the Word Integration functionality.

To facilitate customers who have shared machines with multiple user accounts, we are introducing a means of installing the Word Integration Assistant at the system level, so that the Word Integration Assistant installer needs only to be run once on such a machine.


User Interface Impact: No

Steps to Reproduce:


  1. Copy the IBMCuramWordIntegrationAssistant from the Merative SPM Client Development Environment

(CuramCDEJ\lib\curam\installers\IBMCuramWordIntegrationAssistant.msi) to the client machine.

  1. Run the MSI installer
  2. The installer installs the install artefacts to
    • C:\Users\<user>\IBM\WordBridge
  3. The Installer creates a registry key here
    • Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google\Chrome\



  1. Issue: For every user on a shared machine that needs to use the Word Integration Assistant, the above steps must be repeated.



We now support an install property that can be passed when running the installer using msiexec that will install the Word Integration Assistant at the system
These steps must be run as an Administrator of the target machine

msiexec /i IBMCuramWordIntegrationAssistant.msi ALLUSERS=1 /l*v UIPerMachineInstall.log

The install location will be

C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\WordBridge

The installer will create the registry key here


If the user does not specify the ALLUSERS=1 install property, the installation process will be as described in the "Steps to Reproduce"
