By default, installing MicroSIP using Chocolatey causes the install to go to an inappropriate data folder location and is only available for the admin installing user, rather than for the end users of the Windows system. Does anyone have any experience or ideas in changing the installation location so that system users can actually use MicroSIP when installed and maintained using choco?
I think this might work:
choco install microsip -ia "'/D=C:\SomeDirectory'"
choco install microsip -ia "'/D=C:\temp'"
Did install it to C:\temp for me
Is it working for non-admin users?
Yep, I can run the .exe from my C:\temp. You'll probably have to create a shortcut for a user tho.
yep, I just tried it - I pushed to c:\program files\microsip
and non admins can run it.
and you're right, the shortcut is put on the installing admin's desktop, and nothing in the start menu.
MicroSIP - open source portable SIP softphone based on PJSIP stack for Windows OS.
It says right on the website it’s a portable app, why would you expect a desktop icon or anything on the start menu?
There is a portable version, sure. But there is also a non-portable version.
