This document provides a step-by-step installation of ETAP 7.0.0 and the User Guide. The installation program installs ETAP and all of its components including libraries, example and help files. It also installs the ETAP License Manager since all stand-alone and network keys use this service to provide authorization for ETAP 7.0.0. The ETAP License Manager 7.0.0 is compatible with 32-bit and 64-bit computers and earlier versions of ETAP. For 64-bit computers, the ETAP 1600-USB Security Key is required. Please contact sales@etap.com for any key replacement. After installation, ETAP 7.0.0 may prompt you for an Activation Code the first time you run the software. This 36-character code is located on the ETAP DVD sleeve. To install ETAP, you must have Administrative Access to your computer. For Windows Vista operating systems, it is recommended to turn off the User Account Control (UAC) and the firewall during the installation.
