II. CD Alignment Tool Setup
General requirements to run and use the CD Alignment Tool:

        Intel Pentium Computer (800 mhz or higher)

        Microsoft Windows XP or Microsoft Windows 2000

        A local area network (multiple computers connected together. For example, a computer
         lab.)

The CD alignment tool is composed two main components:

    1.     A database that contains individual reviewers data

    2.     A small web server that serves up web pages that allows reviewers to interact with the
         system.

The database is powered by a product called Microsoft Desktop Engine (MSDE). The web server
is a custom program built on the Microsoft .Net Framework. Both of these items are on the CD to
be installed. The .Net Framework is only necessary if it isn't currently on the computer. Newer
versions of Microsoft Windows may already have the .Net Framework installed. If you are unsure
run the setup program off the CD and it will tell you if it is already installed.

Installation Procedure

1. The first step is to install MSDE. Click on Setup MSDE to start the setup program. If the web
browser asks to save or open the file click on 'Open'. If you are having difficulty getting the
installer started you can access the setup program directly off the CD. Just go to 'My Computer'
and open the CD-ROM. To view the contents of the CD right click on the CD-ROM and select
'open'. Open up the 'MSDE' folder and double click the 'Setup' program. The setup program won't
ask for any user input. When it is completed continue to the next step.

2. Click on Install .Net Framework to start the setup program. If the web browser asks to save or
open the file click on 'Open'. If you are having difficulty getting the installer started you can
access the setup program directly off the CD. Just go to 'My Computer' and open the CD-ROM.
To view the contents of the CD right click on the CD-ROM and select 'open'. Double click the
'dotnetfx' program. When it is completed continue to the next step.

3. After MSDE has been installed the computer must be restarted.Click on Restart Computer to
restart the computer. If the web browser asks to save or open the file click on 'Open'. If you are
having difficulty getting the computer restarted you can do it manually from the start menu.

4. Once the computer has restarted, the next step is to build the database. This step loads in the
database structure and some sample data. Click on Build Database to start the database build
script. A command-line window will come up as the database is being built. (A command-line
window will most likely look black and have lots of text scrolling down on it.) The command-line
window takes about a minute to run. Just let it go, it will close by itself. If you close the window
before it is completed the database might not be setup properly. If you think you might have
closed the window prematurely just rerun the Build Database program. If the web browser asks to
save or open the file click on 'Open'. If you are having difficulty getting the installer started you
can access the setup program directly off the CD. Just go to 'My Computer' and open the CD-
ROM. To view the contents of the CD right click on the CD-ROM and select 'open'. Double click
the 'builddatabase.bat' program. When it is completed continue to the next step.
5. Finally, install the CDAT program. This is the web server and the web pages that the reviewer
will use.Click on Install CDAT install the CDAT. If the web browser asks to save or open the file
click on 'Open'. If you are having difficulty getting the installer started you can access the setup
program directly off the CD. Just go to 'My Computer' and open the CD-ROM. To view the
contents of the CD right click on the CD-ROM and select 'open'. Open up the 'CDATSetup'
folder, then 'Release' folder, and double click the 'Setup' program.

You are now done with the installation process. You can start the CDAT by opening the 'Start
Menu' and going to 'Programs\WCER' and running the program called 'CD Alignment Tool'.
Once the tool is loaded click the 'Start' button and open a web browser with the web link supplied
by the program.
