Installation Steps


Global Settings 

You can set the following settings globally using the IntelliFormsAdmin.xml file (see the Prerequisites section above for download information): 
  • Saved Data Path: This is the location where CCH IntelliForms saves its clients, forms and profiles. The default setting is: C:\Program Data\Wolters Kluwer\IntelliForms. If you want users to save this data to another location, such as a network share or an alternate local hard drive location, without their having to change the path manually, use the IntelliFormsAdmin.xml file.
  • Blank Forms Cache: CCH IntelliForms caches downloaded blank forms to improve performance. In a server farm environment a forms cache for each user may reside on the C: drive of each server.  In such an environment the various form caches may get out of sync. This may result in a longer download time while the cache is updated when the user opens CCH IntelliForms. Moving the cache to a single shared location can improve performance. The cache path can only be changed using IntelliFormsAdmin.xml.
  • Proxy settings: If you require CCH IntelliForms to connect to a specific proxy, rather than have users manually enter these settings within CCH IntelliForms, you can deploy them using the IntelliFormsAdmin.xml file.
