Download Client Plug-in

If you can run Internet Explorer 6.0 or 7.0, chances are you can use the WebAccess Client, which is an Active-X Control plug-in to IE 6.0 and IE 7.0.  Please refer to section 1.4.3 Client - System Requirements for more information. 

If the Client is not already installed, there are three ways to get the Prompt to Download the Client:


Select the WebAccess View button from the Welcome Page (figure 3.1).



Select the Start View link in the Project Manager (figure 3.2)
