  • Using plugins with limited rights

    Hi all,

    I'd like to use Zoom Search for indexing offline content (mainly PDF and Word documents) but the environment I'm working with has very tight security rules. As a consequences, I can only run "custom" programs if they are installed in a specific folder (e.g.: "c:\CustomSoft\...").

    I got Zoom Search installed but the plugins are installed in a separate folder in the "c:\ProgramData\" folder. This means that when the search engine try to access the plugin, it can't launch it because of rights issues.

    Is there any workaround to this issue (specifying another folder for the plugins in a config file or in the registry)?

    Thank you so much!

    It isn't just plugins that use the ProgramData folder. It is load of other functions. Language files, scripts, temp files, setup files.

    ProgramData is a standard Windows folder. It is mandatory to have it available.
