Follow these instructions to install the MAILERS+4 ProServer Individual Workstation version.

The MAILERS+4 ProServer Individual Workstation Install is meant to install the full MAILERS+4 program on one workstation.

Multiple Setup Executables

There are 3 different setup.exe files you need to be aware of and distinguish between:

File Name Description
setup.exe This installs the data files to a shared directory. This is the first of two steps. After installing this to a shared directory, you have to install SETUP.exe to the individual workstations from the shared directory you installed setup.exe to.
SETUP.exe This installs the program to the individual workstations from the shared directory where you installed setup.exe to.
setup-client.exe This is for the individual workstation and performs a full install of both the program and it's related data files. This automatically installs the data files to the C drive.

ProServer Individual Workstation Install

If you purchased the ProServer version of MAILERS+4, you have the option of installing it to an individual workstation.

NOTE: The MAILERS+4 ProServer zip file follows a mp4Svr_YYYYMM format. The file you download will have a different YYYYMM code than the following examples. For the rest of this tutorial we'll use mp4Svr_202007, meaning a MAILERS+4 ProServer install with data files from July 2020.

Download and Extract Mailers+4 Pro Server

Download and Extract the folder.

Identify Your Setup Files

Open the newly extracted mp4Svr_202007 folder. This is where we have to pay attention to the different setup files:
  • Setup.exe installs the data files onto the shared directory.
  • Setup-client.exe is for the individual workstation installs and what we want here.

Run Setup-client.exe

Open the Extracted folder and double click the "Setup-client.exe" to install to the individual workstation.
NOTE: This is for installing to the individual workstation only and NOT the server (shared directory).
