Installing CDS on a Windows 98 Client

There are multiple steps for installing CDS as a Client/Server application. First, install CDS on the file server or a workstation with access to the server, as documented in the server installation guide. After the file server installation is complete, start the Adaptive Server Anywhere application and then install CDS on each other workstation.

Before Installation Norton AntiVirus Users: Disable Norton AntiVirus Auto-Protect before installing CDS.

1. From the desktop, click the Start button, point to Programs, Norton AntiVirus, and then click Norton AntiVirus.

  • 2.

    Select Options and then click the Auto-Protect tab.

  • 3.

    Clear the checkmark next to the Load Auto-Protect at Startup option and then click the OK button.

  • 4.

    Click the Yes button when prompted to unload Auto-Protect.

  • 5.

    Exit Norton AntiVirus.


This procedure installs the Adaptive Server Anywhere and CDS client files on the workstation. This procedure must be performed at each workstation that will access CDS on the network. E-Z Data, Inc. recommends that CDS be installed on one workstation initially and that all agency databases and users be created on that workstation before installing CDS on the other workstations.
