INSTALLING DOCSHUTTLE

You may install DocShuttle from your CD or by downloading the installation file from our website. Downloading from the website will ensure that you are installing the most recent version, so you may wish to download even if you have a CD.

All three modules may be installed on the same computer. However, DocShuttle Administrator and DocShuttle Dictator cannot run on the same computer at the same time. So you may want to install DocShuttle Administrator and DocShuttle Dictator on separate computers, if you have them available. This tutorial assumes that both are installed on the same computer.

Also, to test out the QA process you will need to have a second installation of DocShuttle Transcriptionist on a second computer.

INSTALLING FROM THE CD

1. Close all other programs on your computer

2. Insert the CD into your CD-ROM drive. The installation program should start automatically.

3. Follow the instructions for installing the software, and accept all the defaults.

4. The last step of the installation process will ask you if you want to launch the program file. Click to put a check in that box

5. Click the Finish button to finish the installation and open DocShuttle Administrator

6. When the DocShuttle Administrator software starts, a window will pop up telling you that you have an unregistered version of the software. Cancel out of that window to use the trial version of the software.

Repeat steps 2-6 for the DocShuttle Transcriptionist and DocShuttle Dictator installation files.

When finished, you should have desktop icons for each of the three DocShuttle modules, as in the figure below. You can double click on those icons to open the DocShuttle software.
