B. Configuring the SQL Client Network Utility


1. You need to open the setup form for the SQL Server Client Network Utility. This can be found under your programs.

5. Your screen should now look like this under the Alias tab. Click OK.

6. Finally, the last step to installing the SQL Client is to install the latest SQL Client Service Pack. As of 01/23/03 this is Service Pack 3 for MS SQL 2000. You can download it from: . Please consult your Network Administrator for assistance with this installation or contact Rapattoni Network Support.

After downloading it, run ‘setup.exe’ to install the service pack. Use all the default settings during the installation process.

C. Magic 8 Client installation

1. Navigate to r:\rap\ver8\install\client and run ‘setup.exe’

NOTE: R:\ denotes that the drive has been mapped to the Rapattoni Magic share through drive R. Please contact your Network Administrator for further assistance.

1. The ‘setup.exe’ file launches the Rapattoni Magic 8 client installation.

2. When prompted to make choices, leave the screen defaults as they are, and click the appropriate button to continue. When the setup is complete, click the Finish button.

3. This entire process should produce a shortcut to launch Rapattoni Magic. You can access it from your programs menu (Start-Programs-Rapattoni Magic).
