Basic installation instructions, as well as help in getting started with the program, can be found in the RESUMate 11 Getting Started Guide, which can be found at this link:
Following is a summary of the different types of installations you can have with RESUMate.
Follow the on-screen instructions in the Setup program to install and begin using the program on your computer.
In general, the program must be installed on each machine where it will be run. If you have a dedicated file server, the program does not need to be installed on this machine.
A shared folder on the network server must be created to hold the database file. All users must have full read/write/create/destroy rights to this folder. Once you have created and customized your database file, it should be copied into this shared folder. Each computer running RESUMate should then open that file by clicking the File menu, choosing Database, then Open, and then locating the shared file.
There is a second file, called the Calendar File, which is also required in order to run RESUMate. Normally, this file (always named ResWin.Dat) is located in the same folder as the shared database file.
In a network environment, you have the option of keeping individual calendar files on each local PC's hard drive. In this case, make sure it is located in a folder where, again, the user has full read/write/create/destroy rights. You can check and/or set the location of the Calendar File by opening the Tools menu, choosing Options, then clicking on the General tab.
The Attachments Folder
In a network environment, it is essential to create a shared folder where attachments to records in the database, like candidate resumes in Word Doc format, can be seen by all users. It is recommended that this be a sub-folder of the folder containing the shared database file. For each copy of RESUMate installed, you need to point at this folder in the Tools/Options window, on the Attachments tab.
Terminal Services Installation
A Terminal Services installation requires the same folder arrangement, and rights settings.
When installing the program on the server, make sure to install it as a shared application via the Add/Remove Programs applet in the Control Panel for the server, and not simply as a local application just for the server itself. If you are unsure how to do this, please consult your network administrator.
