  7. 7. ATS Installation Under Macintosh Manager Setup ATS Workstations Run the Workstation Installer for all Workstations • The ATS workstation installer installs the fonts required by ATS products and programs onto each workstation. The installer should be run on each teacher and student workstation that is able to execute the ATS Teacher Program or the ATS Student Program. Install the Macintosh Manager Client Software to all Workstations • If not already installed, install the Macintosh Manager client software on all workstations. • On each workstation: § Open the control panels § Open the Multiple Users control panel § Click on the ‘Options’ tab § In the ‘Global Multiple Option’ window find the section titled “User account will be from” § Select “Macintosh Manager account (on network)” § Restart the workstation The Assignment & Tracking System (ATS) should now be fully installed under Macintosh Manager control. Troubleshooting Rebuilding the Desktop • When logging into Macintosh Manager a message to ‘Rebuild the desktop’ may appear. We recommend the user to log out and log back in. The message should not appear when logging in a second time. ATS Program Launch Fails • If launching the Teacher Program or Student Program fails, select the icon. • Use the ‘Get Info’ command (Command key + ‘I’) to view the “Original:” path. • This path should point to the file server and directory where ATS was installed. If it points elsewhere, you may have multiple copies of the teacher program or student program installed. • If multiple copies are installed, rename the copy you are interested in launching using the Finder. • Remove teacher or student program from the ‘Approved items’ list. • Add the renamed copy to the ‘Approved items’ list. Multiple Installations of Applications under Macintosh Manager • Macintosh Manager does not distinguish between multiple applications having the same name that are installed to a single volume. Macintosh Manager will only list the first instance of the application that it finds for a particular volume. • If multiple ATS installations are installed on one volume, Macintosh Manager will list only one instance of the teacher program and one instance of the student program for that volume. Even if the “Find…” button is used to select the correct application, Macintosh Manager may use the listed application of the same name instead. • It is recommended that multiple installations of identically named applications be installed to separate volumes. • If more than one copy of an application is required on a single volume, the second and subsequent copies should be renamed so that the application names are unique for the volume. 7 of 7
