System requirements for STEP FORWARD Client
Supported OS: Windows 7 or 10.
Getting going with the new installation of
STEP FORWARD Client
1. Run installC.exe program. This will install
STEP FORWARD Client into the designated directory.
2. At this point, the installation is
almost complete, and you are given a setup panel with connection parameters:
The client connection parameters match those of the server. The Client
IP Address can be left blank, except for those rare cases when the
client computer has multiple network interface cards (NIC).

From here on, you are on your way to master the art
of developing applications with STEP FORWARD.
STEP FORWARD Client creates an error log where the program
activity and errors are logged. The log is saved in error.log
file in the installation directory. When problems occur,
this file should be mailed to us. Note that the error log
is cleared when a new STEP FORWARD session starts. So, if
a problem occurs and you decide to send us the error log
file, do so before starting STEP FORWARD again.
Needless to say, a clear and detailed description of the
problem (along with the error log) will go a long way towards
the resolution of the problem. We always fix bugs.
If the problem is reproducible (step-by-step description
always helps), we fix it quickly.
