Follow the on-screen prompts from the installer to install UnForm to your system. This will

install both the uf80d.exe server program and the uf80c.exe client program. The client program

and its associated support files will be installed in the Windows directory, enabling a command

line launch without a full path, as the Windows directory is always included in the PATH

environment variable.

2. Click the Server Configuration option from the Start menu. This will conditionally rename

certain files and prompt for several configuration values. The values entered are stored in several

local .ini files in the UnForm server directory. You can also use the Configure button from

within the UnForm Server Manager.

3. Click the Server Manager option from the Windows Start, Programs, UnForm 8.0 Server menu.

4. Activate the demo mode, then if desired, activate permanently, by pressing the Licensing button

and using the form that displays. On line help is available if needed.

5. Click the Start button from the Server Manager to start the server manually.

6. Use the Server Version option from the Start menu to ensure the server is running properly and

the client can operate from the server computer. The output from this command will display the

version and licensing information.

7. If desired, you can install the server as a service from within the Other tab in the Configure

window. When the UnForm server is run as a service, it is automatically started when Windows

boots up. It is generally recommended that the server first be configured and tested while

running as an application, and then installed as a service after confirming successful operations.

The service by default will run under the local SYSTEM account, which typically does not have

access to network resources. Use Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services to modify the

service to login under a different account if necessary.
