The MSI installation files and the associated Client system requirements can be found in the corresponding sections. The following step-by-step guide will accompany you through the wizards.

You are firstly required to read and accept the license terms. These can also be printed.

The next step is to define the location of the client. You can also define here whether additional components should be installed.

  • Password Safe and Repository 8 installs the client
  • Internet Explorer extension is required to automatically transfer access data to Internet Explorer
  • SSO service for terminal server allows automatic sign-on in the terminal server mode

The actual installation starts in the next step.

The last step finishes the setup and opens the client.

Installed applications

There are always several applications installed.

This is the regular Client.

The Offline Client allows access to the data without connection to AdminClient.

The SSO Agent is the link between the browser add-ons and the database. It allows automatic login without opening the Client and runs in the background.

Integrating a database

For connection to the database, the creation of a database profile is obligatory. The following information is required:

  • Profile name: The name of the profile. This will be displayed on the client in the future
  • IP address: The IP address of the Password Safe V8 server is stored here
  • Database name: Specifies the name of the database

Distributing database profiles via the registry

Of course, there is also an option to distribute database profiles. The profiles are specified via a corresponding registry entry. At the next program start, they are transferred to Password Safe and saved within the configuration file. The data base connection can be made with the following keys:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\MATESO\Password Safe and Repository 8\DatabaseProfiles
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MATESO\Password Safe and Repository 8\DatabaseProfiles

The structure of these keys is as follows:

HostIP: Server IP address
DatabaseName: Name of the database
LastUserName: The field for the user name can be specified here

Is the profile set with the following entries?
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MATESO\Password Safe and Repository 8\DatabaseProfiles

Then the last used date base as well as the last registered user are created with the following ID, when you log in for the first time:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\MATESO\Password Safe and Repository 8\DatabaseProfiles
