System Requirements

Before attempting to install CAED 2017 version 17.0, please ensure that the computer used to perform the installation meets the following system requirements:

  1. Operating System
    • Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 3 (or later) OR
    • Microsoft Vista OR
    • Windows 7 OR
    • Windows 8 OR
    • Windows 10.
  2. Microsoft .NET Framework version 3.5.
    • It is okay to have other versions of the framework on the computer, but version 3.5 must also be on the computer in addition to any others.
  3. Microsoft Access Database Engine 2010
    • AccessDatabaseEngine.exe, NOT AccessDatabaseEngine_X64.exe
    • Special instructions for users with Office 2010 64-bit installed: see Note 2 below.
  1. Note 1:
    • The Microsoft Access Database Engine 2010 and the Microsoft .Net Framework version 3.5 are free products that can be downloaded from the Microsoft web site.
    • Direct hyperlinks to these products on the Microsoft website can be found on the following StatCan website:
    • CAED software
  2. Note 2:
    • Users with Office 2010 64-bit installed will not be able to install Microsoft Access Database Engine 2010, which is 32-bit software. These users will have to install Microsoft Office Access 2007 Data Connectivity Components. Users that are upgrading from a previous version of CAED should already have this 2007 software installed. New users will have to download and install the software from the Microsoft site here:
      Microsoft Office Access 2007 Data Connectivity Components.

Identifying Your Needs

Note:

  • Administrator privileges are required in order to install the application.
  • If upgrading from a previous version of CAED, first complete a backup of the database using the Backup/Restore utility before attempting the upgrade.

Before starting the installation of the software, you have to decide if you want to use the Canadian Automated Export Declaration (CAED) software from only one PC (stand-alone) or from multiple PC's (LAN) at the same time. If you are already using a previous version of CAED, you are required to upgrade to the new version. If you have never used CAED before, you have to do an initial installation.

There are six ways to install CAED:

  • Initial installation of the new stand-alone version
  • Upgrade from CAED 2016 (or earlier) stand-alone to the new stand-alone version
  • Initial installation of the new LAN version
  • Upgrade from CAED 2016 (or earlier) stand-alone to the new LAN version
  • Migrate from CAED 2017 stand-alone to new LAN version
  • Upgrade from CAED 2016 (or earlier) LAN to the new LAN version

Each of the six ways to install CAED is explained in this document and they all use the installation program (CAED2017_v17.00.exe). The installation program can be found on the internet at CAED software.

Select the type of installation you wish and follow the installation instructions associated with it.

Part 6

Uninstalling CAED

Before attempting to uninstall CAED, please ensure that no part of CAED is running or otherwise in use.

To uninstall the CAED stand-alone installation, perform the following actions using the workstation where CAED is installed.

To uninstall the LAN Version – Individual Workstation, perform the following actions on EACH workstation that has the LAN Version – Individual Workstation Setup installed.

To uninstall the LAN Version – Server Setup, perform the following actions on the machine that installed the LAN Version Server Setup.  You cannot uninstall the server setup files from any other machine.

Note: In all cases, uninstalling CAED will not delete the CAED and CAED DLM databases. These can be manually removed by deleting the installation folder containing the application files.

In the event that CAED is accidently deleted, reinstalling the application to the same location will restore the CAED and CAED DLM databases (unless they were manually removed prior to reinstallation).

Appendix A

Solutions to common installation problems

Q: When I run the install.exe program in Windows XP or Vista, a message is displayed saying that administrator rights are required. What does this mean?

A: You do not have the required permissions to install the application.

  • Your computer administrator should:
    • Log in using their administrator account and install the application.
      or
    • Use the "Run As" service to perform the installation as the administrator without having to log you out.

Q: When I click the browse button to select a folder to install CAED, I do not see mapped network drives that are visible in Windows Explorer. How do I install CAED to these locations?

A: When the UAC (User Account Control) is enabled in Windows Vista, 7, 8 and 10, you may not see mapped network drives using the CAED installation if those drive mappings were not originally created using an administrative token.

When presented with a destination folder dialog, you may enter the UNC path of a network drive in the "Folder Name:" text box.

Definition of Universal Naming Convention (UNC)

A convention for naming files and other resources beginning with two backslashes (\), indicating that the resource exists on a network computer.

UNC names conform to the \\SERVERNAME\SHARENAME syntax, where SERVERNAME is the server's name and SHARENAME is the name of the shared resource.

The UNC name of a directory can also include the directory path after the share name, with the following syntax:

\\SERVERNAME\SHARENAME\DIRECTORY

Q: I installed CAED using the stand-alone or LAN Version – Server Setup installation type. I wish to reinstall the CAED application files to a different location but when I restart the CAED installation, I am not asked to select a destination.

A: Once CAED has been installed, the application files cannot be relocated.

To relocate an existing CAED installation, you must first uninstall CAED (see Part 6) and then perform a new installation to the desired location.

It is recommended that prior to uninstalling CAED, create a backup of the CAED database using the CAED Backup/Restore utility. The CAED database can then be restored using the same utility once the new CAED installation has been completed.

If you are uninstalling the LAN Version – Server Setup installation type, you must remember to also uninstall CAED from any workstation that has the LAN Version - Individual Workstation Setup installation. The LAN Version - Individual Workstation Setup must be installed on each workstation after completing the new installation of the CAED LAN Version – Server Setup.

Runtime Application Permissions

For Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8 and 10, the CAED application must have the following permissions:

Folders
C:\CAED (or other CAED path) – Must have "modify" permission

Registry Key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\CAED – Must be able to write to this key during installation and read it when running the application.
