To install NC-Base v7 follow the instructions below.

1. Locate installation files

If you received NC-Base v7 on a CR-ROM, open the NC-Base v7 directory on the CD. If you received NC-Base via e-mail, save the NC-Base v7 file in a temporary directory.

2. Run installation program

Start the installation program by clicking on the CIMCO Software setup program:

CIMCO Software setup program.

3. Select components

Now follow the instructions on the screen.

When prompted for selecting components, select CIMCO Database Server for installing NC-Base Server and select CIMCO Edit for installing NC-Base Client (CIMCO Edit is needed in order to run NC-Base Client).

If you have purchased a license for CIMCO DNC-Max, or wish to install an evaluation version of CIMCO DNC-Max, you should also select DNC-Max from the list.

4. Copying your key file

If you do not have a key file and wish to install an evaluation version, just proceed to the next step.

If you have received a key file from CIMCO, it should be copied to the NCBase7 directory after the installation is completed.

If you have installed both NC-Base Server and Client, the key file must be copied to the CIMCOEdit7 directory too.

5. Starting the server

When the installation is completed, and you have copied your key file, you are ready to start NC-Base for the first time.

Go to the NC-Base installation directory (typically C:/CIMCO/NCBase7) and run NCBaseServer.exe, this will bring up the database server console. Click the "Start" button to start the server.

Verify that your company name is shown at the top of the window. If not, you forgot to copy the key file to the NC-Base directory. If you are running an evaluation version, the license name is Demo version.

In Windows 8, Windows 7 and Vista you need to right-click and select "Run as administrator".

6. Starting the client

Start CIMCO Edit v7 and verify that the Database tab is available in the ribbon. If not, open the Editor configuration by clicking the Global Setup icon in the Editor tab. Go to the Plugins section in the left tree of the configuration window, and ensure that the option Disable NC-Base is unchecked. Now restart the program to activate the Database tab.
