Installing APP Flare 7.07.

Synopsis

7.07 is a major upgrade. It may be installed to new systems or as an upgrade to 7.06(x) clients. It must be installed using the Windows installer. The files that are needed to install 7.07 can be downloaded from a networked drive (Lawrence House) or directly from this server (see below).

The server will be upgraded on Sunday 29th January. After this date you must install the 7.07 client to access the production database.

Downloading 7.07

  1. Exit from APP Flare
    This is very important, closing CPP ensures that non of the files are marked by the Operating System as being in use.
  2. Download 7.07 from the APP Flare server.
    This option will work with unauthenticated web access to the APP Flare server. It should work for all users but may be slow. Use it if you do not have access to Public Protection shared drives.
  3. A dialogue box entitled "File Download" should appear. The File name will be 707cl.exe. Click on the button marked "Open".
  4. The file will download and a dialogue box entitled "Extract Civica 707cl will appear. Click on on "Start"
    The files will be extracted from the archive to C:\WINDOWS\Temp and the install program will be run.
  5. Now go to Install

Install

A series of dialogues will follow. To install a client for the live system accept all the defaults by clicking "Next" each time.

                               System Folder: C:\Flare\FSS
    
    

Progress bars will display and the files will be copied to your PC.

When the installation is complete a further dialogue box will appear with the title "Information". Click on "OK". APP should now start up and prompt you for your login name.

If you have a development client installed on your PC you will need to repeat stages 2 to 4 with the following values.

What to do if the above procedure does not work.

The above procedure assumes that you have sufficient rights to install Flare.

Most users in Lupin House will be able to carry out the install with their own login, but at other locations "administrator" privileges may be required.

If you experience problems please contact your local Flare manager or your local IT support.
