Environment

Summary

This guide is designed to walk you through the procedure of installing TA100 Pro and running it for the first time. We will go through all the steps necessary to do so. Before we start you will need the following items:

1. Your TA100 Pro Software Install CD
2. Your Sentinel USB Key (looks like a flash drive)

Once we've gathered these two things we can begin. We'll be installing several things from the TA100 Pro disk. Outside of TA100 Pro itself we'll also install these two software components:

1. Foxpro 9 Library SP2
2. Sentinel Protection Installer

Both Foxpro and Sentinel Protection are included on the TA100 Pro Software CD. By default during the installation process for TA100 Pro both Foxpro and Sentinel Protection will install. Foxpro is the database library that TA100 Pro uses to store its data. Sentinel Protection is the software driver that supports your USB Key.

If you're familiar with installing software on Windows you can skip the following steps. Keep in mind that if you plan to add Workstation installs of TA100 Pro when prompted you will need to allow the installer to modify your firewall settings to allow Workstation PC's to connect to your main installation PC. This allows the software to communicate with your USB Key.

Step-by-step Installation Instructions:

1. Plug in USB Key to USB slot on computer
2. Green light will come on solid on the key
3. If you get the "Found New Hardware Wizard" windows click Cancel
4. Insert your TA100Pro Installation CD into your CD drive

14. Click next
15. On the "Customer Information" window click next

23. If you see the "Windows Firewall detected!" screen click Yes
24. When you see the "InstallShield Wizard Completed" screen click Finish
25. You will see a window that says "Installation Complete"
26. Click OK
27. Installation is complete! You can now take the Installation CD out of your CD drive

Now that we've installed TA100 Pro we're ready to run it. Based on our installation procedure TA100 Pro may be run in one of any of the following three ways:

1. Desktop shortcut ("TA100 Pro")
2. Start menu shortcut ("TA100 Pro" in the "TA100 Pro" folder)
3. From the file system (C:\TA100PRO\Ta100Pro.exe)

If you changed the path to your TA100 Pro folder during the installation procedure the path in item number 3 will be incorrect. To find the path to your Ta100Pro.exe executable file you could do the following:

1. Right click on a TA100 Pro shortcut
2. Select Properties
3. The location of the Ta100Pro.exe executable file is set in your Target field

Once you've found your shortcut or executable run the program. You'll see the TA100 Pro splash screen followed by a login. Your default login for TA100 Pro is SYSOP for User and password for Password. Once you login you have successfully installed and ran TA100 Pro!
