TheFormTool, Doxserá, and Doxserá DB can do network installs in a two-step process:

1.  Install normally on one computer, add Registration Name and License Code, and set Path to desired shared server location. After you've successfully installed the program on one machine, then

2.  Copy these two files from the first computer and distribute them to the same locations on other users' computers.  Assuming default profile locations and default Word startup folder locations, those two files are located at:

                a.  C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\TheFormTool\TheFormTool.ini

                b.  C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Word\STARTUP\TheFormTool.dotm
