    Click on the Change Folder button if you are updating the shared network files OR you have decided not to install into the default folder, you will presented with the following dialog:

    Select Installation Folder

    Type in the name of the folder you want to install to in the "Path" field or browse to locate another folder.

    Click OK on this and the next dialog to confirm your choice.

  • Now you are ready to load the files:

    Ready to Load

  • Please read this section very carefully as this is where you decide whether to generate new blank database files or locate an existing and/or shared set of data files:

    Generate or Locate Files

    Please read carefully;
