Installing SherWare on a Workstation

  • A workstation install is used when accessing the software from a server. When the software is installed on a server each workstation will run the software from the server. Therefore, each workstation only needs the runtime libraries (the files that enable Windows to run the software) installed and not the whole software program. The workstation install will only install the runtime libraries needed to run the software but will not install the full software itself.

    To perform a workstation install:
    1. We recommend having the software installed on the server with a Full Installation before performing a workstation install on any of the workstations.
    2. Insert the installation CD in the workstation's CD-ROM drive.
    3. Choose the Workstation Install.
    4. Follow the on-screen prompts to install the components necessary for the workstation to function.
    5. The runtime files are now installed. You will not see the SherWare Icon anywhere as the workstation install does not install the full software.
    6. After the Workstation installation is finished you will need to create a shortcut on your desktop to open the software from the server.

  • To create a shortcut, go to your Windows desktop and right-click. Choose "New" then "Shortcut" from the menu that appears.
  • Click on the Browse button to choose the location of the Disbursement & JIB Manager (Integrated Edition) software executable (dmie.exe) from where it resides on the server.
  • Choose the dmie.exe file from the DMIE folder on the server and click OK.
    Click the Next button.
  • Enter the name to be displayed below the shortcut on your desktop.
  • Click the Finish button.
  • You will now have a shortcut on your desktop that will open the software from the server.
  • Right click on the shortcut Icon on the Windows desktop and choose "Properties". The "Target" should point to the executable file on the server. (It will look similar to "\\server\Program Files\SherWare\DMIE\dmie.EXE") The "Start In" should point to the folder that the executable file is stored in. (It will look similar to \\server\Program Files\SherWare\DMIE")
    7. The Workstation Install is complete.
