Here are the steps to setup Client/Worstation version in 5.0 properly:

PREREQUISITE
1. You must first install version AccuZIP6 5.03.43 or higher:
www.accuzip.com/updates
FROM THE MACHINE ACTING AS THE SERVER:
1. Open AccuZIP6 5.03.43 or later.
2. Select Additions|Activate Product.
3. Enter the Registration Serial Number for the “AccuZIP6 5.0 Multiuser Seats”.
___a. Provide the Customer Account# and Unique ID for the Server Computer.

FROM THE CLIENT/SERVER MACHINE:
1. Run the AccuZIP6 5 Client/Workstation Installer:
"You will receive a link for this when you purchase a Multi-user license"
___a. The Default installation location for the Client/Workstation is: “C:\Program Files\AccuZIP6 5.0 - MU Client\”. This keeps it separate from the standard installation.
2. When Prompted for the Network Location, enter the UNC Path to the AccuZIP6 5.0 folder, e.g., \\SERVER\AccuZIP6 5.0 or click the “Change” button to browse Mapped Network.
___a. To ensure the Path Name is correct, click the CHANGE BUTTON. If no errors or warning occur, the path is correct.
3. Double-click on “AccuZIP6 5.0 – Client” and click Run when prompted by the Microsoft OS to launch the application.
4. When prompted with the “Users” window, click the New button to setup a Username and Password (optional).
___a. You can setup as many Users as you would like and the Server side installation will control the number of simultaneous users.
5. Repeat Steps 1 – 4 for each Client/Workstation computer (seat).
___a. You can run the “accuzip_clientsetup.exe” remotely from the Server or DVD (on the next bimonthly).
___b. You do not have to copy the “accuzip_clientsetup.exe” to each Client/Workstation to install.

Important Information:- This “accuzip_clientsetup.exe” installer will not be updated.
- The DLLS are version checked when the application is opened and will use the most recent versions from the Server.
- This installer installs and register all of the dlls, .NET objects, .NET Environment, PDF Driver and OCX Objects locally
- A shortcut under Programs|AccuZIP6 – MU Client|AccuZIP6 5.0 – Client and on the Desktop are created during the installation.

Activating the Client/Workstation:- Each Client/Workstation installation does NOT need their own Registration Serial Number, but would need a new Registration Serial Number to activate the other features, e.g., high-end presorts, MAIL.DAT, Manifest mailing, etc…
