Installation Instructions

INSTALLING RiviKard SERVER EDITION:
Make a backup of existing RiviKard server data files.
It is best to install the program from the server console. If this is not practical, you can use a network workstation.

From the server console;
Run Rivikard Server Setup.exe and install the program to the directory that will be shared and mapped as a drive. If you are sharing the entire server drive, install to the root of the drive. If you are not sharing the entire server drive and are creating a share using a subdirectory, the Rivikard program must be installed as a subdirectory of the share. (See below). The workstations must see the program as being installed in the \RiviKard directory off the root of the mapped drive i.e. F:\RiviKard.
Entire Drive Shared

Subdirectory Shared

Install Server Edition from a network workstation;
Run Rivikard Server Setup.exe and install the program to the \RiviKard directory of the mapped drive on your server that will contain the program files. (i.e. H:\RiviKard). If a mapped network drive is not available, have your network administrator create one.


NETWORK WORKSTATION SETUP (Shortcut Only):
Will install the initialization files necessary to run RiviKard directly from the server and create an icon on the desktop.
Click on Start, Run. Using the Browse button, click on the mapped network drive that contains the RiviKard Server program. Navigate to the \RiviKard\Setup directory. Click on "RiviKard Workstation Shortcut.exe". Click Open and then OK. Accept all the defaults. 


NETWORK WORKSTATION SETUP (Full Install): 
This option will install the RiviKard Workstation program files on the local hard drive. Network licensing will be used. (The license file is located on the server). The server installation must already be complete.
Click on Start, Run. Using the Browse button, click on the mapped network drive that contains the RiviKard Server program. Navigate to the \RiviKard\Setup directory. Click on "RiviKard Workstation Full Install.exe". Click Open and then OK. 


STAND ALONE COMPUTER SETUP: 
The license file and serial number were purchased for this computer alone and are stored on the computer's hard drive. (The computer can still use data files that are stored on a network server.) 
Download and install the Stand Alone version of RiviKard.
The installation program will install RiviKard on the local hard drive. Network licensing will NOT be used. (The license file must be stored on the local computer).
