  1. The shared application folder can be mapped to a network drive on all workstations, though we recommend using the Universal Naming Convention (UNC) path. (Example: \\SRV-NAME\Clubessential).  

    Note: Using the UNC path can help minimize spread of viruses.

  2. You must log in to the machine using the Windows user account of the user that will be using the software.  The Office and POS applications must be installed for each user on a PC or Terminal Services user.

  3. The user’s permissions must include local administrator rights for the prerequisite install. The prerequisites are a global install and may be installed as the administrator of a machine – separate from Office and POS.
    If you receive any errors during the installation process, please refer to the Common Questions and Concerns section found at the bottom of this guide.  Reach out to support if you encounter any errors.
