I am trialing the new Workspace 2.0.

The server installation went flawlessly. However, I downloaded the Windows client from the web interface and installed it as Admin on the client computer; during installation, it informed me that "client cannot run with elevated privileges." The client application is now in the taskbar, but I can't do anything with it and I don't see any way to configure the connection to the server.

I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling without "as admin," but the client doesn't seem to ever kick off a config dialogue or other way to connect it to my server installation.

What should I do?

A bit more info: When I open the "Kerio Workspace Client - File Library Manager," all options are greyed out (Unsubscribe, Show in Explorer, Show in Workspace, Open File). Right-clicking on the various options in the taskbar doesn't allow me to set any configurations. Literally, it seems there is nothing I can do with the app as installed.

I took a look at the log and it includes this:

You have to subscribe a filelibrary for synchronization using the web interface. Or if you want just to edit/view one single file, select View/Edit On My Computer. See http://www.kerio.com/workspace/online-file-sharing

I see. So there is no way to automatically give a user access to all file libraries, or to a group of them? It has to be done manually, subscribing to each through the web interface?

If so, this is a big detriment when comparing to Dropbox.

If you need just a dropbox functionality for a single user, you can create one Workspace page with one File Library in it and put all of the users' files there. The user then subscribes to that file library and that's it. All of his folders and files are there.

But Workspace, by design, is a collaborative product with a great deal of flexibility how organization's data can be structured. For example, Marketing can have one shared file library that every member of the marketing team subscribes to. The same goes for Sales, HR, etc. In fact, you should have some degree of separation combined with access control. You don't want anyone but HR people to access the HR file library.

But Workspace allows you to create file libraries everywhere. It is up to the users (or organization's policy) to determine what they prefer - a small subset of shared file libraries or many file libraries (e.g. per project)

Hope this helps.
