Installation instructions...

Unless otherwise noted on a particular build, these are good guidelines for installation.

1) Backup the Slabsmith database (not generally required, but a good idea)
2) Backup the ssData directory (not generally required, but a good idea)
3) Install the admin program on the server (this will update the database if required)
4) Install Slabsmith on the user computers.
5) If the previous version icon is still on your desktop, uninstall the old version.
6) If the version you download requires maintenance, you must contact Northwood Designs, Inc. for a new License.  phone: +1 315.287.2877 or email: nwd@nwdesigns.com
