    Hi All,

    Thank you to those in the know for continuing to answer some tricky questions, I had one to throw into the pot myself.

    I have a single v90, and since I’m a mac user, it serves only as an Internet Explorer 6 test platform, for my work.

    I was wondering if anyone knew how to go about removing the software locking/installation restrictions in place on the standard Wyse image, so I can install Synergy2, and Mozilla Firefox locally on the machine..

    Synergy, as some of you will know; is a network KM allowing one machine to ‘host’ it’s keyboard and mouse for the other one to share – that’s really important for the work I do, but – I’m at a loss of how to install it, given that I don’t have access to a windows Machine; and I re-image my terminal with the (awesome) USB method – I’d really appreciate your input.

    Thanks in advance, and a belated welcome to 2008 for all wyse monkeys 🙂

    Hi,

    just log off while pressing the Shift key. This will give you a logon box.
    Use Administrator/Administrator to log in and disable the so called Write Filter. Then install your software, reboot, enable WF again and work.
