Please Note:
If the workstation already has the client software installed, you may get a message saying, "The setup will perform an upgrade of 'PCS Director'. Do you want to continue? Click "Yes" and run the file. You will then need to do a re-boot and then repeat the first step before proceeding to the second step.

Click "next," accept the license agreement, and click "next."



Third Step

Choose "Step by Step Walkthrough" and click "next." Click "next" once more to install to the default directory.


Fourth Step

Choose "SQL Server" for the database type and click "next."


Fifth Step

Choose "No - Do not create a new database, I already have one" and click "next."


Sixth Step

Choose "No - Do not install, I already installed one" and click "next."


Seventh Step

Choose "No - Do not install the Copy Audit Communicator on this machine" and click "next."

Tenth Step
