How to Install and Run the TCMS v2 Software with Windows 7 Platform

Friday, June 22, 2012 FingerTec 5 Comments

To install the TCMSv2 software, double click on the installation file (or run direct from the Go Green DVD). By default, the installer will install the TCMSv2 software into the C: drive and it will also create a shortcut icon on the desktop.

1. You are the Administrator of the computer
An alert message will appear when you double click on the TCMSv2 shortcut icon. The message is a reminder for you to use the “Run As Administrator” command to start up the TCMSv2 software.


Use the right mouse button to click on the TCMSv2 shortcut icon and select “Run As Administrator” to start up the TCMSv2 software.




2. You are login as a Guest/Users (non-administrator) of the computer 
You are required to use the same method (Run as Administrator) to start up the software. However, Windows will request for the administrator password before it grants access to the TCMSv2 software. You will need the Administrator to input the password every time before you can use the TCMSv2 software.


The Administrator will need to perform the below configuration to give users the access to use the TCMSv2 software.

Option 1: Do not install the TCMSv2 software into the same hard disk drive as the Windows OS. During installation, select the installation path to install the TCMSv2 into another hard disk drive. 

Option 2: The administrator can configure the sharing and security of the TCMSv2 software .


1. Use the right mouse button and click on the TCMSv2 shortcut icon. Select Properties > Sharing > Advance Sharing > check “Sharing this folder” > Apply > OK 



2. Click the “Security” tab > Edit > Add > Advanced






3. Find Now > Select the Type/Name of user > OK 


4. Check “Full control” > Apply > OK

    1. Dear Value Customer,

      Kindly be inform, basically we strongly recommend you run the TCMSv2 software in 1 computer, because the software does not design to use as multi users solution. Sharing software among network can cause the database to corrupt anytime.
      However, if you wish to use our system in multiple computer, you can try to install Ingress software because it can support for multi user solution. For details information, you can refer to the following link.

  4. 1. Use the right mouse button and click on the TCMSv2 shortcut icon...

    This is wrong. To set the rights a administrator need to set permission for the installed folder, not for icon, hence we can correct it as below,

    1. Use the right mouse button and click on the TCMSv2 installation folder....

    Now follow all other steps and it will work for sure.
