Like other advanced systems, the installation of Acctivate should be performed by a professional with experience and knowledge with the management of advanced computer systems. This includes knowledge and experience in installing software, networking, and database administration. To state it simply, Acctivate is not a plug-and-play system, it will require time for installation, data migration and training. Of course, feel free to contact support or your Onboarding Specialist with any issues you may encounter.
Before you begin
- Close all applications
It is very important that no other programs or applications be running on your system during the installation. If you are having problems, disable your anti-virus software temporarily.
- Review this guide
Please thoroughly review this guide and be prepared for each step of the installation process before you begin, including the System Requirements. Acctivate must be installed with the correct type of installation for the type of system it is installed on. The Acctivate installer makes two types of installations available to you: Database Server and Workstation.
Acctivate Database Server
Use for Servers, Workgroup Hosts, Single-User/Single-Computer Systems
The Acctivate Database Server installation installs and configures database files. This is the database which workstations will connect to. Please refer to our Database Server Install guide to properly setup Acctivate on your server.
Advanced deployment options can be found in our Installation Resource guide.
Use for each additional computer added to the Acctivate system
The Acctivate Workstation installation process will be performed on all computers, except the one designated as the server. Please refer to our Workstation Install guide to install Acctivate on additional computers.
