Instructions on how-to install SedonaOffice on a new workstation.
First, you must have the following already installed on the workstation:
C++ 2010 x86 Runtimes: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=5555
C++ 2012 x86 Runtimes: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30679
Microsoft .Net 4: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=17851
Special C++ Note: The 32bit (x86) runtimes are REQUIRED, even on 64bit (x64) computers. Both 32 and 64 bit runtimes can be installed at the same time but SedonaOffice needs the 32 bit versions to work correctly.
Each installation of SedonaOffice is unique to each customer so this is a general guide to installing SedonaOffice. Your server names and file paths will differ.
Navigate over the network to the “SedonaOffice Installation Files” folder located on the SQL Server, we do not keep a record of the server’s name.
The best way to navigate to the SQL Server is via “Start” then “Run”, enter “\\THE NAME OF YOUR SQL SERVER” then press enter.
Navigating to the SQL Server via ‘Network Neighborhood’ is acceptable also.
All the files referenced here should be run ‘directly’ from the shared folder, you should NOT copy them to the workstation.
Once in the shared folder, run “SOClient 5.x.exe”. The ‘X’ portion of the file name may vary from customer to customer and is irrelevant.
Follow the on-screen instruction while installing the client
If the installer tells you that a file is in-use, click on ‘Cancel’, the installer will continue.
Once complete, the installer may ask to reboot, allow it to reboot the system.
Once the client installation is completed and the workstation is rebooted if necessary, navigate back to the “SedonaOffice Installation Files” folder located on the SQL Server.
You now need to run the latest update located in the same shared folder. The update files are named according to their version. If the folder has multiple update files, you only need to run the current version the other workstations are using.
If you are on SedonaOffice version 188.8.131.52 then the update file will be call ‘SedonaOffice_Update_56037_Rev_X.exe’. The ‘X’ portion of the file name may vary from customer to customer and is irrelevant.
After the update is started, if required, it will ask to download and install .Net 4 from Microsoft. This is now a requirement of SedonaOffice for versions 5.6 and newer, you must allow it to be installed to continue the update.
Follow the on-screen instructions while applying the update.
Once the update is finished, you should be able to log into SedonaOffice from the desktop shortcut.
SedonaOffice ‘Windows’ user REQUIRE both READ and WRITE access to the SedonaOffice installation directory for the application to work properly. Failure to allow this will cause errors in various areas of the application. No critical data is stored within this directory, so allowing users access to it does not create a security issue.
Due to the network bandwidth required by the SedonaOffice client, direct operation of the application is NOT supported over ANY type of VPN. The workstation must be on the same local network as the SQL Server. Terminal Services / Remote Desktop Services are the only supported and recommend ways to access SedonaOffice remotely.
