How to Locate the installation files

Once you have the NewsRoom 50 Client Installation file downloaded on your server you can install it on a users workstation.  The recommended location for the NewsRoom Client installation  is in the install folder on the NewsRoom Server.

For Example, If your the NewsRoom system is installed on "E:NewsRoom50" then the client installation files should be located in "E:NewsRoom50bin_dynupdate" (Seen Below)

This folder corresponds to a Windows network share available to workstations and is available as a  UNC path such as  "\{ServerName}NewsRoom5bin_dynupdate"

This is the path you will use on the workstation to locate the install file on the network.  The availability of this path is a requirement for the NewsRoom clients to function correctly.  Make sure it is valid on the workstations.  You can install the NewsRoom client on all of your workstations using this same path.

* Local Path to the Files on your Server

* UNC Path to the files on your server (available to workstations)
