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 a plug-in to IE 6.0 and 7.0.  Please refer to section 1.2.6 Client System Requirements

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

Select the WebAccess View button from the Home Page (Figure 11.1).


Select the Start View link in the Project Manager or from the list of Nodes in VIEW in a multiple node project.


Select the Start Draw link in the Project Manager.



Select the Download Plugin Here link in the WebAccess Home Page.

1.      The prompt to Download and Install Client appears (Figure 3.3) if the Client plug-in not already installed.

5.      The Windows Save As Dialog Box appears (Figure 11.4)

We recommend that you save to Disk unless you have a very fast Internet Connection. We also recommend that you save to Desktop, so that you can find the Setup.exe program easily in order to run Install.
