How to set up Workstations - Network Environment Only


For new installations and as required for certain upgrades, (that is, 11.4), each workstation that accesses IRIS Accountancy Suite needs to be configured. This can be done by running the Setup program over the network.


New Installations or Adding Additional Workstations

At each workstation:

  1. Navigate to the shared folder on the server that holds the IRIS files; either by browsing to the folder, or by typing in the name of the shared folder.
  1. Right-click Setup.exe and select Run as Administrator.
  1. Click Next to start checking the environment for possible issues that may prevent a successful installation.

  1. Review warnings or errors if they are presented. Click Next to continue.

  1. The PC Environment Scan checks for the correct version of Internet Explorer. Review warnings or errors if they are presented. Click Next to continue.

  1. Select the available installation options required and click Next to continue.

  1. The next scan checks for valid directories, databases and permissions. Review warnings or errors if they are presented. Click Next to continue.

Correcting the Regional Settings

If the regional settings for the computer are not correct, the following dialog may display. This indicates that the computer being used is not set to English (United Kingdom) in the Regional and Language Options.

  1. To move past this dialog click Continue. However, to avoid this message in the future change the regional settings.

  1. Click Start, Control Panel, Regional and Language.

  2. From the drop-down list, select English (United Kingdom) and click Apply.


Once the Main Menu displays and the codes are ready to be input, activate the IRIS Accountancy Suite. Activate IRIS from any workstation once workstation setup is complete.
