Using the Demo [Internet Explorer & Netscape Instructions]
After selecting our Online Demo Link, you will be asked to complete a brief form with some general information. Shortly after filling out the form, you will receive an e-mail with a direct link to our Online Demo Page.
- From your e-mail account you may first want to print a copy of the e-mail as it contains a Self-Guided Tour that you will find useful during the Demo.
- Next you will click on the Demo link to connect to our demo server using Windows Remote Desktop.
- After selecting the link you will see a new page open in your Internet Explorer browser. There will be a button that says Connect but it may be grayed out at first.
Be patient... it may take a moment to download the special ActiveX control from Microsoft that will allow you access the Demo If you are using Dialup Internet Access this may take several minutes for this one time download.
- Look at the top of your Internet Explorer or Netscape window and see if you have alert to install an ActiveX control (see example below). If you do, right click on the bar and select Install ActiveX Control (see example below). NOTE: You may not see this and only see the install box shown in step 2.
- Once you choose install, you will see the box below. Click on Install. If you choose Don't Install, you will not be able to connect to the demo. NOTE: You only need to install this the first time you connect to the demo.
