Installation Scenarios

Before beginning any installation of the SOAPware DataServer, it is important to decide what type of installation is appropriate for your computing environment.

1. If you have several computers in your clinic and would like to access the same set of SOAPware databases on the Server from each Client computer, you will need to follow the steps in this guide only on the Server.  On each Client computer, you will need to follow the steps in the Installing SOAPware Guide.  Most sites will use this option.

OR

2. If you plan to use SOAPware on one machine and one machine only, you will need to follow the instructions in this Guide and the Installing SOAPware Guide on the same computer.

If you are unsure what type of installation is appropriate for your environment, please consult your Network Administrator or contact SOAPware Technical Support for assistance.

 

Installing the SOAPware DataServer

Installing the SOAPware DataServer

Before starting the SOAPware DataServer installer, log into the Server using the Administrator account.  If you do not have access to the Administrator account, please contact your Network Administrator.  If you are installing on Windows Vista or Windows 7, you will need to run the installer “as administrator.”

To start the SOAPware DataServer installation, insert the SOAPware CD and Click Install DataServer.

If the CD does not auto-run, browse to the FSCommand\SOAPwareDataServerInstaller.exe file on the CD and double-click it.

Then complete the steps below.

 

1. Setup

The WinZip Self-Extractor will prompt you to either proceed with the Setup by extracting the SOAPwareDataServerInstaller.exe files or Cancel the setup.  Press Setup to proceed with the setup process.  The files will be extracted into a temporary file on your local hard drive.  The extraction process will typically take less than a minute.

Password

Password

If you insert a password that the installer thinks is weak, you will be asked if you would like to replace the password. If you are confident that the password that you have selected is cryptic enough, Click No.

If you Click Yes, the installer will automatically create a password for you, but be warned, it will look fairly cryptic, i.e.  “XgkqU|._w,o&E!QD:<_aL)N-xtB%=Sz.”  If you choose this option, be sure to write down the password as you will need it later.

Once you have set the proper passwords, Click Next.
