Before beginning, if you are updating an existing copy of Remote Entry, make sure you do not have it open.
After clicking on the Download link, a Download screen will appear. Click on the Download button and when the download is complete run the Rinstall.exe file to launch the Remote Entry Install Wizard. Click Next and make sure you specify the correct folder where you want to install Remote Entry.
If you are creating a new installation, the default folder name is C:\TT, but you can change that if necessary. If your computer is on a network, you should still install it on your local drive, although it is possible to install it on the server. Remember that if installing it on the server you must install a copy in a separate folder for each user.
If you are installing the program as an upgrade, you must specify the same drive and folder where your existing copy of Remote Entry is located. Otherwise, you will simply be installing a second blank copy of the program. If you do not know the folder name, start up your existing copy of Remote and click on Info on the main menu. The line that begins with the word “Directory” will indicate the current drive and directory. Copy that exactly into the Folder space in the SetupWizard.
Complete the installation by clicking Next three times, then click Install, then click Finish. You do not have to enter or change any information in those screens. After clicking Finish, the program will start up automatically.
If you are creating a new installation, the Configuration screen will appear first. You must specify whether you will be operating the program in local or remote mode. Select local mode if you have access to the main billing program over a network and can therefore access the main program directly to lookup your client and matter numbers and billing rates. If not, select remote mode.
If you are operating in local mode, you must then enter the drive and directory (folder) where the main program is located.
If operating in local mode, you must also specify the export method. In most cases you will want to export directly so when you export your entries they are merged immediately with the main program’s unbilled charges file. However, you can also export your entries to a separate “holding” file, so that they can be reviewed and then merged with the main program later by the operator of the main program. To do this, select the Separate File option and then enter the drive and directory where you want the entries to be saved. If you leave the folder space blank or specify the same folder as the main billing program itself, the entries will be stored in the main program’s Batch WIP Entry file.
When filling in the Configuration screen, press the F1 function key for more information about each option.
Remote Entry is designed to operate on any computer running Windows XP or higher, including Windows 10.
Remote Entry includes an on-line User Manual accessed by clicking Help or by pressing the F1 function key. The manual is also provided in the form of a PDF file titled remote.pdf, which will be found in your Remote Entry folder after installation.
In some cases, Internet Explorer may not allow you to access the User Manual if you are operating on a local area network If that is the case, you can correct this by running the Run Helpfix function from the Tools menu. If that does not resolve the problem, then you will have to refer to the pdf file.
You can now select your own font and font size for Remote Entry. Click on Tools, Select Font, to make your selections.
