Customized Gong Client Installer for Windows

In this page you can create a Gong client installer with your own set of settings. A Gong client installer is a file which allows people to install the Gong software by simply double-clicking on the file. And this installer is tailor-made for your Gong server.

This is particularly useful when you have already installed your Gong server and you want to distribute the Gong client program to others. For example you can:

  • Put the file on a CD and distribute to your users
  • Put the file on the Web so users can download it
  • Use the file to install the Gong software across multiple machines such as a computer lab

In order to generate the installer you probably only need to put your name, email and the Gong server address in the following form. However you can also change some of the startup parameters if you want more control. It's a good idea if you first take a look at the Gong startup parameters page to see the kind of things you can do.

This file generation process will take up several minutes. Once the file is created an email will be sent to your email account. Therefore you must enter a valid email address. The email contains a link where you can download the installer. The size of file is around 14MB and you have to download it within 24 hours.
