Installing WinRK


Important information

If you have WinRK version 2 installed, this MUST be uninstalled first, as the two versions cannot co-exist on the computer.  Make sure that you make safe copies of all your database files before proceeding!

From the “Downloads” page, save the WinRK installation file to your computer and run it from there. Do not attempt to install directly from the web.

Please ensure any anti-virus programme is completely disabled before attempting to install WinRK.  We also strongly recommend you install the program whilst logged in as an administrator.

Run the installation file (“Install_WinRK x.x.x.exe” – where x.x.x is the current version number), by right-clicking it and “Running as Administrator”.  Depending upon your PC’s security settings, you may be asked to confirm that it is in order to install WinRK.

Once WinRK has been installed you must configure the shortcut, which by default has been placed on your desktop. Do this by performing the following steps:

Right-click the WinRK icon and select Properties.  In the Compatibility tab set the programme to run as WindowsXP (Service Pack 3). In the Shortcut tab select the Advanced button and set the program to ‘Run as Administrator’
You will also see a new icon called SAC_TeamViewer on your desktop, which may be used if you require remote assistance at any time.

That’s installation completed, but do not forget to re-activate your anti-virus software!


When you first run WinRK you will be presented with a dialogue box informing you that you are running in evaluation mode for 30 days.  You can purchase an activation code (unique to your PC) at any time during this period, and this should be entered in the relevant box, thus fully activating the product.  If you do not do this within 30 days WinRK will become locked, but still capable of being activated at any time.


If you encounter any difficulties with the installation process please contact us and we will assist you.
