Converting Prior Year Program and User Settings

Your tax slip data can be rolled forward from either the 2008 T4 TimeSaver (original) or 2008 T4 TimeSaver.NET by selecting Convert Databases from the Tools menu or Open from the File menu.    T4 TimeSaver.NET does not automatically import user settings from the previous year's T4 TimeSaver during the installation process.  You may use "Import User Information from Last Year's T4 TimeSaver" from the Tools menu to import user settings information.

System Requirements

T4 TimeSaver.NET is designed for and tested on the following Windows platforms: Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7.

The Microsoft .NET Framework Version 2.0 must be installed on the computer. If, during program installation, a Network Administrator Installation is selected, the .NET Framework installation package will be copied to the network location and will be installed if required when T4NETNODE.EXE is run.  If a Workstation Installation is selected and the Framework is not installed, you will be prompted to download the  .NET Framework installation  package from the Internet.

Windows 2000 has the following prerequisites:

Installing T4 TimeSaver.NET

If you downloaded the install file (T4NETSETUP.MSI) from www.t4timesaver.com, simply run it and follow the instructions.  If you are installing from a CD, insert the CD and wait a few seconds for the setup program to start up. If it does not start automatically, run d:SETUP.EXE (replacing d: with the drive letter of your CD drive). Follow the on-screen instructions.  If you are running Windows Vista you may have to right click on the installation file and select "Run as administrator" to start the installation.

Network Installation

If you want to run T4 TimeSaver.NET from more than one workstation, you can do a Workstation installation on each computer, but for ease of installation and centralizing subsequent program updates, it is recommended that you install the program on a network drive where it can be accessed by all network users. This type of installation is called a Network Administrator installation.

When you start the installation, select "Network Administrator" as the type of installation and complete the installation to a network drive. Then run T4NETNODE.EXE from each workstation to install the program on the workstations. A shortcut will be created on the workstation's desktop and in the Start menu.

When installed as a "node", T4 TimeSaver.NET can also run in off-line mode, which allows laptop users to run the program when out of the office (accessing local data and user settings), and then reconnect to the network when back in the office.

Registering T4 TimeSaver.NET

To register this copy of the program simply enter the unique authorization code issued to you by ELM Computer Systems. Until this code is entered, the program will print "VOID" on the slips and summaries, and the features of T4 TimeSaver.NET Plus will be unavailable. You may continue to use T4 TimeSaver.NET without registering the program. All the data you enter will be saved. The opportunity to register will be available every time you start the program until registration has been completed.

Installing Adobe Acrobat Reader

T4 TimeSaver.NET uses the free Adobe Acrobat Reader for viewing and printing returns (slips and summaries). You must have Acrobat 5.x or above. To install or upgrade Acrobat Reader you may download Acrobat Reader from Adobe's website www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html.  If you have difficulty downloading or installing the software, visit Adobe's website at www.adobe.com.
