Desktop setup installation

Show expandable text

If you installed FileCabinet CS on a network, you must run a desktop setup on each workstation to add FileCabinet CS to its Start menu and to install a shortcut icon.

To run the desktop setup program from each workstation, follow the steps outlined below.

  1. Close all open programs on the workstation.
  2. Open the Windows Explorer and navigate to X:\WinCSI\CABINET\DESKTOP, where X is the drive or network location where FileCabinet CS is installed.
  3. Right-click Setup.exe and choose Run as administrator.
  4. Choose whether you want to add a FileCabinet CS icon to the desktop.
  5. If you want to install the FileCabinet CS Print Driver, mark the box under the Other installation options. Note that for FileCabinet CS 2017, this option cannot be unmarked; there is an update to the driver that requires it to be reinstalled.
  6. Click Next. 
  7. When the installation is finished, you will receive this message: "Setup is complete. You may run FileCabinet CS by selecting the program icon in the CS Professional Suite folder in the Programs menu.".
  8. Click OK to finish the installation.


If you cannot complete the desktop setup installation for any reason, take the following tips (in order listed; if you have already attempted one, move on to the next)

  • Reboot your workstation. Once rebooted, disable any anti-virus software running, as well as other programs in the background.
  • Log in as ADMINISTRATOR, rather than as a user or a user with administrative rights.

If you receive the message that the desktop setup needs to be performed when opening the program, see Desktop setup or workstation setup loop.
