Installing PocketSurvey on your PC
Previous Topic  Next Topic 

The installation program will copy the required files to your hard disk and configure your system. It is a good idea to close all running Windows applications before running the installation program.

You can run the installation program from your hard disk after you have downloaded it from the Internet. Installing PocketSurvey is easy; simply follow the on screen instructions presented by the installation program. After installing the PocketSurvey files, the installation program creates desktop icons from which you launch the PS Survey Manager and the PS Data Manager programs.

Green Installation

The PocketSurvey installation is known as a 'green' installation. This means that it will not place files anywhere other than in its own directory, nor will it add programs to your Windows folder. This means that should you choose to remove PocketSurvey from your system you will not have any redundant files remaining on your computer.

Note

For ease of re-installation PocketSurvey adds a few lines to the registry but this will not harm your system.

For more information about what is installed, see the Files & Folders topic.

Using PocketSurvey on a Network

You should install the PocketSurvey system on you local PC just like you would with Microsoft Office. However, you can  store your survey and data files anywhere. If you have a network server that is automatically backed up we recommend you store your surveys and data there.

If you are unsure of how you could use PocketSurvey on your network, you should speak to your network manager or contact Handheld Systems for advice.
