Install Applications for All Users

By default, Ninite installs most apps for all users on a machine. This is because most installers behave this way by default.

There are a exceptions though. The following apps only install for the current user:

  • Chrome /allusers supported
  • Dropbox /allusers supported *
  • Everything
  • Hulu
  • KMPlayer
  • Launchy
  • Revo
  • Spotify
  • uTorrent

Ninite Pro includes an /allusers switch you can use to force installation for all users on a machine. This feature only supports Chrome and Dropbox at the moment. We are working on adding support for other apps.

Here's an example command:

NinitePro.exe /select Chrome Dropbox Hulu Firefox /allusers

It will install Chrome and Dropbox for all users. Hulu will be installed for the current user only since /allusers does not support it yet. Firefox will be installed normally (which is for all users by default).

* Please note that Dropbox will only be installed for all users when Ninite does not detect any existing per-user Dropbox installations on the system.

Pro only

These features are only available in Ninite Pro.
