The link to download Browsium Client from the top banner of Proton Manager fails to execute the download unless the Local Manager was installed with the server. This is due to a bug in the Proton server setup code that only places Browsium Client in the proper location for download on the Proton server when the advanced option to install the Local Manager is selected during setup.
Proton Manager provides easy access to the Browsium Client installer package (Browsium-ClientSetup.exe) from the top banner of the Proton Manager web page. This link is located at the top of the page immediately to the left of the server URL.
If Proton Server was installed without the Local Manager option selected during setup (the default configuration), the copy of Browsium-ClientSetup.exe is not placed in the directory where the link from the Manager looks for the installer package. The Browsium-ClientSetup-4.0.0.exe installer package is always available in the Browsium-Proton-4.0.0.zip file, and that copy can be used for enterprise deployment. You can also fix the link to download Browsium Client from the Proton Manager by copying Browsium-ClientSetup-4.0.0.exe to the
C:\Program Files (x86)\Browsium\Proton\Server\Sites\Server directory on your Proton server. Note that you must also rename the file to Browsium-ClientSetup.exe (remove the version number from the file name).
The following screenshots show the Server directory before and after the manual workaround.
Server directory when Browsium-ClientSetup.exe is not present (if Proton Server was installed without Local Manager).
Server directory when Browsium-ClientSetup.exe is present (if Proton Server was installed with Local Manager, or after manually copying the installer to this directory).
This issue will be fixed in a future release.
