Installing the Aptify Desktop Client

Follow these steps to install the Aptify Desktop client on a computer running Windows:

  1. Download the Aptify 5.0 Installation ZIP file (called APTIFY_500_Revised) to a folder on the computer and unzip its contents.
  2. Right-click the Setup application and select the Run as Administrator option to launch the Aptify 5.0 InstallShield wizard.

    Using the Run as Administrator option bypasses the User Access Control (UAC) for the duration of the installation.

  3. In the License Agreement screen, select the I accept the terms of the license agreement option and click Next.
  4. In the Customer Information screen, enter your User Name and Company Name, and click Next to continue.
  5. In the Select Features screen, ensure that only the Aptify Windows Client Application check box is selected, and click Next to continue.
    • Do not select the Aptify Database Server Components check box.
    • A third installation option is also available to install the Application Server functionality. These instructions assume that you are not installing the Application Server on this computer. For information on how to install and use the Application Server, see Installing Application Servers and Administering Application Servers.
    • The setup program provides an estimate of the amount of space required on the computer to install the selected items. Note that even if you are installing to a different drive letter other than C:, some space may be required on the C: drive to install third-party modules, such as the Microsoft .NET Framework and Crystal Reports viewer.  
  6. In the Aptify Windows Client File Location screen, choose the destination location where you want the client files to be installed, and click Next to continue.
    • The default installation location is C:\Program Files\Aptify 5.0.
    • Click the Change button to open the Choose Folder dialog if you want to select a different installation folder. 
  7. In the Ready to Install the Program screen, click Install to install the Aptify Desktop client.
  8. Once the Desktop client is installed, click Finish to close the window.
  9. Modify the computer's regional options, if necessary.
    • Depending on your geographic location, you may need to modify the Regional Options for the user's desktop computer and the default language for the user's SQL Server login so the system displays dates, times, numbers, and currencies in the appropriate format for that user.
    • See Configuring Language Setting for SQL Server Users for more information.
  10. Launch the Aptify Desktop client for the first time.
