Installing the ACUCOBOL-GT Thin Client

For in-house installations, the ACUCOBOL-GT Thin Client installation files are included on the product media. A self-extracting installation program (atcinst.exe) can be found in the REDIST directory on either the Windows or the UNIX CD-ROM. In accordance with the applicable license agreement, this file can be distributed within your organization or placed on a shared network drive. Users double-click this file and follow the on-screen instructions to install the thin client. The thin client can also be selected as an installed product from the Windows CD-ROM.

Once it is installed, you can invoke the ACUCOBOL-GT Thin Client from a command line, or you can set up an icon for it. Create an icon for the thin client, specifying command parameters as desired. Command parameters for the thin client are described in The acuthin Command. For information on establishing program icons, refer to your Windows documentation.

You can also download and install the ACUCOBOL-GT Thin Client from Micro Focus's Web site. Click the link for Micro Focus's download page, then click the link for the ACUCOBOL-GT Thin Client. Follow the displayed instructions to download the file. When the download is complete, follow the instructions on the screen to install the thin client.

When you install the thin client from atcinst.exe or from Micro Focus's Web site, the system displays the terms and conditions for using the ACUCOBOL-GT Thin Client. You must agree to the terms of this agreement to install or use the thin client.

Note: Microsoft Windows Vista’s UAC mechanism blocks the installation of ActiveX controls, such as ACUCOBOL-GT's Thin Client, onto systems that are not running Internet Explorer 7 in administrator mode. Vista includes an ActiveX installer service that allows IT administrators to use Group Policy to specify Web sites from which standard users will be allowed to install ActiveX controls.
