Installation and Environment Considerations
Program File Location
Program files are installed to C:\Program Files\Relius\Admin. Sungard Corbel strongly
recommends using the defaults. However, if system configurations require, you may use
another local drive letter, using the same directory structure. Relius Administration
cannot be installed to a network. You will need your 6-character client ID (ABC123
format) and the TCP/IP address of your database server (if applicable) before beginning.
Installation Methods
Relius Administration is only available on CD-ROM. A local CD-ROM drive is
recommended and supported. Each workstation will require access to a local CD-ROM
drive. Other methods of installing (network volumes, “push” or “ghost” technology,
Z.E.N. Works, Zip Drives, etc.) are neither supported nor recommended.
If a remote, shared CD-ROM drive is used to install the software, it must be mapped with
a drive letter assigned. Running the Relius Administration 7.0 SETUP.EXE from a CDROM accessed by browsing with Network Neighborhood will fail.
Software fixes via Internet
Fixes and support files are distributed via the web at Users
must have Internet capability to receive these fixes. Visit our web site and click
“subscribe” ( to receive
notification of new fixes by e-mail. Sungard Corbel does not send patches and updates
through the mail, and we strongly urge all users to subscribe to this service. Updated
documents can be obtained at
Virus Scanners
Some virus scanners are incompatible with the installation program. If these programs
are active, they can interfere with successful installation. Symptoms include an error
message stating that a file cannot be overwritten (such as RICHED20.DLL or
RICHED32.DLL). Disable them by right clicking on the icons (in the system tray on the
right side of the taskbar) and choosing Exit before starting the installer.

Windows NT Workstation/Windows 2000 Professional Considerations
Responsibility for support of problems and issues related to Relius Administration 7.0
running in a locked-down security configuration is that of the end user. Certain
circumstances may require billing on a time and material basis. Sungard Corbel cannot
guarantee that Relius Administration 7.0 will install or operate properly on any given
locked-down security configuration. Relius Administration 7.0 is certified and supported
only when run on the default Windows NT/2000 security settings.
The Windows NT/2000 Administrator (or a user with equivalent Administrator rights)
must run the installation.
Unsupported Operating Systems
Windows 3.1, Windows 3.11, and Windows 95 are no longer supported. For a list of
supported operating systems and configurations, see Appendix A. Operating systems
must be installed to the local hard drive of each workstation. Diskless workstations and
operating systems that run from the network are not supported.
Hardware and Software Requirements
All hardware requirements are specified in Appendix A of this document.
Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows NT 4.0 Workstation with Service Pack 6a or
greater, or Windows 2000 Professional with Service Pack 2 or greater. (Windows 98
and Me systems should have the most recent patches and Y2K fixes installed. See for more information.) Windows NT 4.0 must have
Internet Explorer 5.0 or greater installed.
Personal Oracle database or Oracle Workgroup Server 8.1.7R3 pre-installed.
Appropriate printer driver (HP LaserJet III or greater).
TCP/IP Network Protocol for multi-user systems. TCP/IP must have a static IP
address on the database server. SPX is no longer supported by Oracle; for that reason,
SPX is no longer an option for a network protocol.
Minimum video resolution of 800 x 600 with 256 colors.
Workstations already running Relius Administration must be at version 7.0 prior to
this installation.
Windows Me Considerations
Users of Windows Millennium Edition (Windows Me) attaching to a multi-user Oracle 8i
database need to read Appendix B before beginning.

Environment PATH Issues
The Oracle Installer places C:\ORAWIN95 or C:\ORANT in the environment variable
known as the “path” (substitute D: or E: for your local hard drive). This variable is
required for Oracle to function. In Windows NT, the path is set in the system’s registry.
In Windows 95 or Windows 98, the path is set in AUTOEXEC.BAT. Several
circumstances may cause Oracle to be missing from the path after re-booting:
More than one path statement in AUTOEXEC.BAT. Edit AUTOEXEC.BAT
manually and combine all path statements.
Network login script changing the path. Your Network Administrator will need to
edit your login script to include C:\ORAWIN95 or C:\ORANT.
“Call” batch files changing the path. Manually edit the called path statement.
Consider editing the called batch file to use the below example:
The @ symbol in the path statement. Manually edit AUTOEXEC.BAT and remove
the symbol.
Too many parameters in the path. Either remove redundant or unnecessary path
statements from AUTOEXEC.BAT or change your environment space. In
CONFIG.SYS, consider using the below line (adjusting the /E: switch accordingly):
If Windows will not launch after installing Relius Administration 7.0, the path may need
Network Protocol
Oracle no longer supports the SPX protocol. TCP/IP is the only protocol supported by
Sungard Corbel. The database server must have a static TCP/IP address. Workstations
can have a TCP/IP address automatically assigned, but Sungard Corbel recommends
static TCP/IP addresses on the workstation. For more information, please see visit or
see your network administrator. You will need to enter the TCP/IP address of the
database server during the installation.

Performing the Program Installation
Pre-installation Notes:
This installation is valid for Windows 98, Windows Me, and Windows NT 4.0
Workstation, and Windows 2000 Professional. All references to “Windows,”
unless otherwise noted, are also valid for the above named operating systems.
Run Scandisk or CHKDSK to check the integrity of your hard drive and have any
problems resolved before installing this release.
Be sure no screen saver will become active during the installation. Sungard
Corbel discourages the use of screen savers whenever running Relius
Administration or the Installer.
Many support files will be installed to the “System” directory, normally
The installation process takes approximately ½ hour to complete.
You can connect your Investment Download to the Internet using the Internet
Service Provider (ISP) of your choice. Sungard Corbel does not recommend or
endorse any particular provider. Your Technology Representative can review
your ISP’s requirements if you prefer. Please call 1-800-326-7235, Option 3 for
more information.
Before installing this software, you must have Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.5 or
greater installed. The Investment Download requires certain components of
Explorer. Running Netscape will not cripple the Investment Download, but the
Investment Download will not work without IE 5.5 or greater.
Remove any icons or shortcuts from the StartUp folder. Additionally, programs that are
set to launch when Windows is started can also be specified in C:\WINDOWS\WIN.INI.
Please edit this file using Notepad. Temporarily remark the entries RUN= and LOAD=
by placing a semi-colon (“;”) in front of the line (if programs are specified), then Save
and Exit the WIN.INI file. Example of remark:
Re-start the computer. Windows or other programs may have locked some files that need
to be overwritten during the upgrade process.

Installing MDAC and Restarting the Workstation
PCs with Relius Administration 7.0 pre-installed may see the screen below. The version
of MDAC that is delivered with Relius Administration 7.0 is identical to the version
being installed by the Investment Download installer. There is no harm in clicking Yes,
but it is unnecessary. Click No to continue.
If you click No, the installation will continue to Step 5.4.
If MDAC is not already installed, it will install in the background. Do not interrupt
this process, as it takes some time to finish.

Appendix A System Requirements
Relius Administration 7.0 Workstation
Hardware Requirements
Although system requirements vary from client to client, the following is a list of basic
requirements. Your requirements may change based on the number of participants accessing
your Web Server, Internet connection speed, security, safety, etc.
Pentium III 500 or greater
128 MB RAM
4 GB Hard Drive
Minimum SVGA Video Resolution of 800 x 600 with 256 colors
Windows 98/Me/NT/2000 Pro
Internet Explorer 5.0 or higher
Windows Compatible Mouse
Free Disk Space: A minimum of 500 MB of free disk space on the drive where program files
are to be located is recommended. Single-User systems require an additional 1 GB of free space
on drive C:, D:, or E:.
Note: Windows Me and Windows 2000 Pro are now supported with Relius Administration
7.0. Windows 95 is no longer supported.
Note: Windows must be installed on the local C: drive of the workstation. Operation of
Relius Administration with Windows run from a local hard drive other than C: or
run from a network drive is not supported. In all cases, Windows be run from
Most Windows compatible laser printers will work. Sungard Corbel highly recommends the
Hewlett Packard LaserJet Series III printers or newer. These printers are fully supported by
Windows, Novell, and most all other software available on the market. For plans with large
numbers of participants you will need to consider printer duty cycle, print speed, turnaround
times, etc.

Appendix B Windows Me Considerations (Multi-User Only)
Users of Windows Millennium Edition (Windows Me) need to consider several factors when
installing and running Relius Administration 7.0.
Windows Me is primarily used for home computer systems. It is a multimedia, internet-ready
operating system that does not necessarily give users complete business-ready operating power.
Because of this, certain adjustments need to be made to a system after Relius Administration has
been installed.
Windows Me has built-in protection software that enables users to recover from faulty
installations, inadvertent or mistaken changes to configurations, and outdated files that are
incompatible with the most recent operating system software. If upgrading from Quantech 6.0
multi-user, the Windows “protection” system does not allow the Relius Administration installer
to remove C:\ORAWIN95 from the path. You must manually edit this. If a multi-user system,
follow the below guidelines to remove this variable from your environment after installing Relius
Administration 7.0. Single-User systems running Personal Oracle 7 (standalone) will not
need to be edited.
Click Start | Programs | Accessories | System Tools | System Information. The “Help and
Support” screen will appear. This screen may take a while to refresh.
Click Tools | System Configuration Utility. Click OK if you receive the message below.

At the System Configuration Utility screen, click the “Environment” tab and double click
Manually edit the “Variable Value” by removing C:\ORAWIN95, if it exists. Click OK
when finished.
You will be prompted to re-boot. Click Yes. The system should restart shortly.
