Ask your system administrator if you need help.•Install or verify that the following Windows services (required by the SoftLogix controller) are running. These services are automatically installed when you install Windows Networking or RAS:–Remote Procedure Call (RPC)–Server–WorkstationIf you are using Windows 2000 or Windows XP, right click on the My Computer icon and select the Manage menu item. This opens the Computer Manager tool. Select the Services and Applications folder to verify that the required services are running.Install RSLinx SoftwareBefore you install the SoftLogix controller, make sure RSLinx is installed on the computer. A separate CD with RSLinx software ships with the SoftLogix controller.Install the SoftLogix5800 ControllerWhen you insert the installation CD into your CDROM drive, the CD automatically begins the Setup program for the controller. If your computer meets the hardware and software requirements for the controller, you can install the controller.1.Make sure RSLinx software is installed on the computer. Shutdown RSLinx software before beginning this installation procedure.2.Insert the SoftLogix installation CD.IMPORTANTIf you have a previous version of the SoftLogix controller already installed on the computer, use Add/Remove Programs to remove that earlier version before installing the current version.
