ASuite could be very useful to give a workgroup access to a common set of programs: Install it on a server volume and let it point to programs on that server. All users get access to the same programs - this is nice.
A little draw-back: There is no "read-only" mode with respect to the configuration in ASuite.xml. Therefore, the configuration on different clients interfere with each other. If, on the other hand "ASuite.xml" is made read-only, there is an issue at program exit: ASuite cannot exit because it wants to write the configuration file in any case.
It would be helpful if there could be a read-only mode for "normal users" while in read/write-mode (admin mode) the configuration can get prepared for them.
