Question Portable mode install mac client on windows
Hey,

I would like to use the portable feature on my work computer which does not have admin access. I have a usb and have been planning to put portable mode on there and use it as normal, however my work computer is a mac and my home comp (with admin) is windows. Would I have to find a mac that has admin access in order to get this working?? Thanks Smile

RE: Portable mode install mac client on windows
Hi,

No, as MacOS doesn't require administrative access to install the client. However, you do need administrative access to make sure the MacOS install allows WhatPulse to monitor input and network traffic. This is not something the portable mode would fix, as it requires settings being changed on the OS itself.

Perhaps you could ask your administrators to install it for you, as it's a one time thing - after the install you could use it as a regular user.
