The next window is indicating where the Servant Keeper 7 program will be installed. (See Figure 7) The Help Desk recommends keeping the default installation path as this makes getting updates to the program much easier and getting assistance with the program quick and easy. Click the [Next] button to continue.
NOTE: Remember: This is the program installation step. This is where the Servant Keeper 7 program will be installed. In the next step, you can choose where to install the Servant Keeper 7 database. The Help Desk recommends keeping both default installation paths. Keeping the default installation paths will aid in the ease of getting Help Desk Support and program updates.
The next window is indicating where the Servant Keeper 7 database will be installed. (See Figure 8) The Help Desk recommends keeping this default location. If you install the database somewhere other than the default location, be sure to document where the database is getting installed. Knowing where your database is installed will aid in getting Help Desk Support when needed. Click the [Next] button to continue with the installation.
The next window is the Ready to Install window, this window reviews all of the settings that have been made thus far in the installation process. (See Figure 9) If the information is correct, click the [Install] button to begin the installation. If you need to make any changes in the displayed settings, click the [Back] button. If you would like to cancel the installation process, click the [Cancel] button.
You will now see an Installing window. (See Figure 10) This window will show the progress of the installation procedure.
After the installation is complete your Servant Keeper 7 Membership Manager will open.
