.NET Client Setup
FSS must be installed locally onto each client that will need to run the application from the QAD .NET user interface. To do this, extract \Client\qad.plugin.fss-2.2.0.0.zip into the plugins folder of your QAD .NET UI client installation. Your QAD .NET UI client installation is typically found in C:\Program Files\QAD.
Note: To use the mapping capabilities of FSS, you also must install Microsoft MapPoint 2009 locally on each client PC.
Application Changes
FSS 2.2 now integrates with an optional installation of Microsoft MapPoint 2009. Previously, mapping capabilities were only available via MapPoint 2006. With FSS 2.2, mapping capabilities require the installation of MapPoint 2009 on each FSS client.
