The Workstation installation can be done on any computer on your network only after you have completed either a full installation of Servant Keeper 7 with a New Database or a Database Only installation on your server or main PC. After that installation, you will need to share your Servant Keeper Database folder to your network users. If you do not know how to share a folder on your network, please contact your Network Administrator for assistance.

NOTE: Before doing a Workstation install, you will need to know where the SK7 Database is installed. If you do not know where your database is installed, please contact your Network Administrator for this information before beginning the installation process. Although the Help Desk is well versed in the network installation of SK, they are not familiar with your network setup.

  1. Open the email with the link for installing Servant Keeper 7. Click on the link and select Run. This will begin the workstation installation.

  2. The first window you will see is the “Welcome to the Servant Keeper 7 Setup Wizard”.  (See Figure 1) Click the [Next] button to continue the setup process.



  3. The next window is the License Agreement. (See Figure 2) Please read the  agreement so that you understand the licensing of the program before continuing with the installation. If you agree with the license agreement, click the “I accept the agreement” radio button. Click the [Next] button to continue with the program installation or click the [Cancel] button to stop the installation process.


  4. You will now see the Install Type window. (See Figure 3) This help sheet is for  the installation type: “Workstation Install”. This option will install the Servant Keeper 7 program into a Servant Keeper 7 folder in C:\Program Files (or Program Files(x86)). This option allows you to connect to an existing shared SK7 database on your server or main PC. Click the [Next] button to continue with the install.


  5. The next window is Customer Information. (See Figure 4) Enter your Servant  Keeper Customer ID number. Click the [Next] button to continue with the installation. If you would like to cancel the installation, click the [Cancel] button.


  6. Next, you will see the New User Information window with the default User ID and  Password for a new installation of Servant Keeper. (See Figure 5) You will need this information to log in to the program for the first time. If you would like, you can print this information by clicking the [Print] button. Click the [Next] button to continue with the installation.

    NOTE: If the User IDs and Passwords have been changed within the program on the main/server  
    computer, you will log in to the program with the new credentials your user(s) created.



  7. The next screen, User Security Information, only applies to customers upgrading  from an older version of Servant Keeper. (See Figure 6) If you are installing Servant Keeper for the first time, simply click the [Next] button to continue.


  8. The next window is telling you where the Servant Keeper 7 program is getting  installed. (See Figure 7) The Help Desk recommends keeping the default installation path as this makes getting updates to the program and assistance with the program much easier. Click the [Next] button to continue with the installation.


  9. The next window is asking where the Servant Keeper 7 Database is installed.  (See Figure 8) Click the [Browse] button and select the location of your Servant Keeper 7 Database on the server or main PC. Click the [Next] button to continue.



    NOTE: Before doing a Workstation install, you will need to know where the SK7 Database is  installed. If you do not know where your database is installed, please contact your Network Administrator for this information before beginning the installation process. Although the Help Desk is well versed in the network installation of SK, they are not familiar with your network setup.

  10. The next window is the Ready to Install window. (See Figure 9) This window  reviews all of the settings that have been made thus far in the installation process. If all looks good, 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.


  11. You will now see an Installing window that will show the progress of your installation.

    When the installation is complete, you will see a window telling you how many 
    days are remaining on the SK7 demo, asking if you would like to register. If you have your registration information, click the [Yes] button--this will allow you to activate your program. If you do not have registration information at this time, click the [No] button and the Membership Manager will display the log on screen.

    If you do not register your program within 30 days, Servant Keeper will not open 
    after the demo expires. In order to continue to use the Servant Keeper program you will need to register and activate the program.

    During the installation of Servant Keeper there will be a Servant Keeper shortcut 
    placed on your Desktop. Double left click the icon and you will see the Servant Keeper 7 Launcher with the shortcuts for Administration Manager, Membership Manager and Contribution Manager. Simply click on the module you would like to 
    work in and it will open to the logon screen.
