How to install Axalant
Axalant, which is the
name of the new version of CADIM, is provided like any other Windows 2000
application at CERN.
To install it you will need to use the "Add/Remove Programs" function which can be found in the Control Panel on your PC.
The Control Panel is found from the Start menu by selecting "Settings" - "Control Panel".
Access the "Add/Remove Programs" function.
Select "axalant 2000sp3" from the "Add New Programs" listing and click "Add".
The automatic Axalant installation will now start and will last for about 5-10 minutes.
Please make sure that you do not stop the installation or close the "Add/Remove Programs" function before the system clearly indicates that the installation is ready. If doing so, the installation might not be correctly completed and might cause problems running Axalant afterwards.
Once the status of Axalant 2000sp3 is changed to "Installed" in the "Add/Remove Programs" window the installation is finished and Axalant is ready to be used.
When logging in the normal EDMS login and password should be used.
