    Process Maps Installation
    The process maps are delivered separately from the QAD .NET UI. The process maps for QAD Enterprise Applications 2012.1 – Enterprise Edition are included with the QAD 2012.1 EE release media.
    Process Maps and Internet Explorer
    Note the following when editing and viewing process maps in Internet Explorer:
    With Internet Explorer 8 and 9, Print Preview is not supported for process maps and they do not print correctly.
    By default, the Process Viewer uses Silverlight rather than SVG.
    The Process Editor uses SVG.
    Important: Internet Explorer 8 and 9 do not include the Adobe SVG plug-in, which is required for using the QAD .NET UI’s Process Editor. If you have not installed the SVG plugin on your local machine, the Process Editor will display an error message when you try to edit a process map. QAD includes the SVG plug-in with QAD .NET UI in the client directory on the home server (in HomeServerURL /client/SVGView.exe) so that you can install it on machines running Internet Explorer 8 or 9. You can also download and install the SVG plugin from Adobe’s SVG site (go to: After installing SVG, restart the QAD .NET UI and open the Process Editor. After a moment, it will ask you to verify the use of SVG, and then you can proceed to use the Process Editor.
    Internet Explorer and QAD .NET UI Client Installation
    Warning The 64-bit version of Internet Explorer will not install the QAD .NET UI client, even if you are running Internet Explorer as an administrator. You must use the 32-bit version of Internet Explorer (typically located in C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe) to install the QAD .NET UI client. A situation in which this is likely to occur is when a user inadvertently creates a shortcut to the 64-bit version of Internet Explorer rather than the 32-bit version, and then uses that shortcut to launch Internet Explorer.
    QAD Document Library Access
    The QAD Document Library ( ) offers a complete set of all QAD user guides, training guides, and other materials.
    With all the user guides now available in the QAD Document Library, QAD Assist now includes a link to the QAD Document Library and only includes the program and field help as content.
    QAD Assist Installation
    QAD Assist is a QAD .NET UI application that hosts HTML versions of the QAD Enterprise Applications online help for programs and fields. With QAD Assist, you can search the online help to quickly find more information.
    QAD Assist is installed as part of the QDT-based installation of QAD Enterprise Applications — Enterprise Edition.
    Reporting Framework Sample Reports
    When upgrading from a version of the QAD .NET UI prior to 2.9.4 where the Reporting Framework included six sample reports, note that the six reports have been removed in the newer versions. If you keep the previous menu system data, and the AppServer has the upgraded version without the .p programs (proxies) for the sample reports, you get an error when you launch the reports from the menu. If you no longer need these reports, you can delete them from the menu system using Menu System Maintenance. If you would like to continue to use these sample reports, you can copy the six proxy programs from your previous system to the new system and compile them. Alternatively, delete them from the menu system, and then install the six sample reports included on the Reporting Framework Source CD, following the instructions included with the CD.
