The setup: step-by-step

1. The first step of the setup is to choose the language. This option can also be changed later in eSignatureOffice.

2. The next screen will show the Welcome Page, which contains the version number of the installation.

3. To continue the installation, you need to agree to the terms of the license agreement.

4. On the next page you need to choose the installation folder. The default folder is "C:\Program Files\StepOver" (under 64bit: "C:\Program Files (x86)\StepOver"), followed by the product name and version number. If you want another location, you can use the "Change" button.

5. On next page, you can select the installation type of the software. If you want to use the signature pad on the same system, you're installing eSignatureOffice to, you need to select the option "Local". If you install the software on a Remote Desktop or a Citrix Server, you need to either select the options for "Citrix" or "TCP/IP". The installation types "Citrix" and "TCP/IP" will require additional software on the client system.

You will need an internet connection for this installation, because the PDF Converter will be downloaded. You can also download this PDF Converter later from the StepOver Website. More information about its setup and the usage can be found in the chapter The StepOver PDF Converter: Setup und utilisation 

10. eSignatureOffice is now installed, you can close the setup with the "Finish" button.


Setup as TCP server/client system

If you are not planning to use eSignatureOffice locally on the same computer, to which the signature device is attached to, you can also create a server/client system. This can be especially useful when the distance between the used computer and the place, where will be signed is too far for a direct USB connection of if several persons are supposed to use the same signature device.
