Install And Configuration - Network Edition - Workstation
Workstation Installation Instructions
To install the Network edition of Maintenance Pro, please download and run the setup file (it is normally called mp version_net.exe, for example mp2020_net.exe). If the file is not available, please refer to your original order email for the download link. You can also email us at email@example.com with the name the software is licensed to and we'll send you a download link.
Note: For the best results, make sure you run the setup file as administrator, and that the windows user you are logged in with has full local admin privileges. You may also wish to temporarily disable your antivirus to prevent it from blocking anything during the install process.
During the installation process you will come across these three installation options. Choose Client Only for the workstation install:
The next prompt will be the Destination Folder for program files. You can accept the default here:
Next, you will see a database connection window.
Remote Host Name: This is the computer name of the server computer you will be connecting to. Most of the time you will choose this option.
Server IP Address: This is the local network IP address of the server computer. If you use this option, please make sure the IP address on the server is set to a static IP address (one that doesn't change). If the server has an IP address that is dynamic, if the IP number ever changes you will run into connection issues on the client, as it won't be able to communicate with the server any more.
Click through the next few prompts and start the install. When complete, click the Finish button.
Upon opening the program for the first time you will be presented with a registration window. Enter the username and serial number which has been provided to you.
