Installing TimeVue on a network: 2008 

  1. Install TimeVue on a workstation and start TimeVue.
  2. Click "OK" in the "Installation Incomplete" window, when asked to locate the Datastorage.tvd database file.
  3. In the "Browse to database file…" window, left click once on the default Datastorage.tvd file, highlighting the file, and then click on "Open".
  4. Enter your registration code in the "Enable Options" window.
  5. Select the Start Button on the Welcome Screen. If you have additional option codes, enter these code by selecting the Install Modules Icon in the TimeVue management screen.
  6. Exit TimeVue.
  7. Open Windows Explorer and create a new folder on the server. The TimeVue Datastorage.tvd database file will eventually be moved from the workstation to the newly created folder on the server. If the server does not appear in the Explorer window's list of folders, then you must map a network drive to the server first.
  8. Locate the Datastorage.tvd database file on the workstation. In a typical install it would be located in the following path: C:\Program Files\Icon Time Systems\TimeVue. Copy the file to the newly created folder on the server. Rename the local, workstation copy of Datastorage.tvd to Datastorageold.tvd.
  9. Start the TimeVue software. When asked to locate the Datastorage.tvd database file, click "OK" in the "Installation Incomplete" window.

  11. Install the TimeVue software on the next workstation.
  12. Open Windows Explorer and locate the Datastorage.tvd file on the workstation. In a typical install it would be located in the following path: C:\Program Files\ Icon Time Systems\TimeVue.

  14. Start the TimeVue software on the workstation.
