Follow these instructions to install the MAILERS+4 ProServer Shared Directory version.

The MAILERS+4 ProServer Shared Directory is meant to save space on machines because it allows the data files to be accessed from a shared directory.

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.
SETUP.exe This installed the Program to the individual workstations from the shared directory.
setup-client.exe This is for the individual workstation.

ProServer Shared Directory Installation

If you purchased the ProServer version of MAILERS+4, you have the option of installing it to a network.

  • Begin with a server installation to the network drive and finish at each work station with a small install off the server.
  • This will allow MAILERS+4 to run smoothly by registering the required dll’s on the client computer.

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.
