Network Loading Instructions

The network version of HeadMaster has a database that is loaded on the server and program files that are installed on each workstation. The network installation of HeadMaster consists of two phases:

  • Phase 1 - Installing the database on the server
  • Phase 2 - Setting up the workstations

When installing the database on the server, you must have administrative or supervisory rights. The program must be installed at the server because it contains some client-server functionality.

  1. Insert the HeadMaster CD into your CD-ROM drive. The HeadMaster Autorun menu displays.

  3. Follow the onscreen instructions.
 If the HeadMaster Autorun menu does not display
  1. On the Windows desktop, click Start, then Run.
  2. Type X:\setup.exe and click OK. If your CD-ROM drive has a different drive letter, substitute the appropriate letter.

Phase II - Setting Up Workstations

Once you have installed the database on the server, you can set up workstations.

 To set up workstations
  1. On the Windows desktop, click Start, then Run.
  2. Type X:\HMaster\Setuphm.exe and click OK. If the HMaster directory is on a different drive letter than X, substitute the appropriate letter.
