Installation Notes for System Administrators

  • DO NOT install as one Windows user account, then expect to use FT when logged in as a different Windows user account.

  • FT4Web uses INI files (as was common practice before Windows Vista). If you install security software that prevents FT programs from modifying its own .INI files, then your user will get error messages on start up and shut down of FT4Web Charting and Ranking.

  • There still are dozens of ways that a you, as a System administrator installing/configuring Windows, firewalls, spyware and, virus software, can shut down a system so tight that FastTrack will die from lack of oxygen. Further, FastTrack Support uses LogMeInRescue for support and training. If you lock out such remote control services, we will be UNABLE to help.

  • DO NOT prevent the user from modifying/changing files in the root\FT folder. By default, FastTrack installs in the root\FT and NOT in "\Program Files\" as a courtesy to the many older 3rd Party programs which use FT data which cannot tolerate long files names with spaces in them. When installing, accept the default install locations unless there is a darn good reason to change. Certainly, changing the drive letter is perfectly acceptable . . . but not when that drive is a networked drive that the user will be unable to modify.

The job is not complete until the user is able to run FTComm to update data, then to see charts, and shut down without an error message.
