Installing Acctivate on the server and workstations.

The first step to Acctivate is to install it! See this article about how to install Acctivate on your server and your workstations.

For installing Acctivate, everything is handled by one installer. Rather it be a server install, workstation install, update, or new, QuickBooks or CYMA. 

Installing Acctivate on your server or workstation is as easy as heading to our downloads page and clicking the "Download Installer" button.

From there, you'll run the installer:

  • For server install, you'll want to choose the "Install Acctivate Database Server" hyper link on the main installer page. You'll be asked for your Acctivate credentials. This is your ID and password assigned to you when you purchased the software.
  • For Workstations, you'll be asked for the location of the Acctivate SQL server instance. If installing a version prior to 12.2, you'll be instead asked for the Acctivate data path. 

After you provide the requested information the install will begin, and you won't need to do anything else. After the install, you can choose to launch Acctivate.
