Office & Outlook Addins install for all users

Description

When installing LogicalDOC's MS Office and Outlook addins, they are installed to the currently logged in user profile. Therefore the installation needs to be repeated for each user on the same computer.

It would be better if the addins installed for All Users. That way the addin packages only need to be installed once, and the packages could deployed more easily remotely.

Currently we have available a setup installer of LogicalDOC Office Add-in for Terminal Srver (TS), but we don't plan to build the same for Outlook Add-in since we never received such request and it's not common to use Outlook in TS.

It's not just the case of a terminal server environment. We have multiple people logging into the same PC. Each user has their own local profile. Which means with the current installer, if 3 x people used the same PC, we have to install it 3 x times. Would you reconsider?
