RDPWin Download Instructions - Server & Client

If RDPWin Version 2 has not been previously installed, please review the RDPWin Version 2 Installation Instructions for details and the checklist necessary to upgrade to RDPWin Version 2.xxx.

To download the RDPWin server and client install files, follow the steps below:

  1. Click on RDPWin Server 2.XXX above to download the latest version of the server.   Select Save.

  2. Save the file to the your network drive, usually F:\RDP\RDPWin.  If this folder does not exist, create it. Do not run the server install from a workstation. It must be run from the data server.

  3. Select Close.

  4. Repeat this process for RDPWin Client 2.XXX to download the latest version of the client.  Select Save.

  5. Save the file to the your network drive, usually F:\RDP\RDPWin.  If this folder does not exist, create it.

  6. Select Close.  Proceed to the RDPWin Server Installation Directions Below.

RDPWin Server Installation Directions

The server version of RDPWin must be installed one time on the data server using the steps below.  This procedure updates all RDP standard Crystal Reports and other system files.

  1. The RDPWin server install must be run from the data server console.  It cannot be run from a workstation. All users must be logged out of RDPWin and RDP-DOS during the server installation.

  2. Log onto the data server as Administrator.  Administrator rights are required to run the RDPWin server installation.

  3. Open Windows Explorer and navigate to the location where the server installation file was saved and double-click the RDPWin server installation file.  The filename is in the format RDPWinServer2.XXX.exe.  Make sure to run the current server 2.XXX.exe installation file.

  4. Select Next.

  10. Proceed to install the RDPWin client on each workstation as set forth below.

RDPWin Client Installation Directions

The client version of RDPWin must be installed on each workstation using the steps below.   All users must be logged out of RDP-DOS and RDPWin before installing the first client after an update.

  1. Logon to a given workstation as 'Administrator' or a user with administrator rights.

  2. Open "Windows Explorer" and navigate to the location where the client installation file was saved, and double-click the RDPWin client installation file.  The filename is in the format RDPWinClient2.XXX.exe.   Make sure to run the current client installation file by double-clicking the correct file name.  Follow the directions on the screen. When prompted for the "Destination folder", it is critical to use the default drive "C" and default path "\program files\ResortDataProcessing\RDPWin".  The only time this should be changed is when installing on a Citrix or Terminal Server that does not have a "C" drive.  See Using RDPWin Remotely with Citrix or Microsoft Terminal Server.

  4. If updating to RDPWin Version 2 for the first time please click here for instructions on creating the ODBC connection.

  5. When complete, start RDPWin on the workstation and verify that the correct version appears on the logon screen.  The first time RDPWin 2 is installed, the "CheckFiles" program must be allowed to run completely. This program confirms appropriate configuration for data tables, date fields, etc.  This can take up to an hour on some systems.

  6. Repeat steps 1 to 3 for every workstation that uses RDPWin.
    If the data server or IRM Bridge server use RDPWin, the client installation must be run from these computers as well.  When installing RDPWin Client on a Citrix or Terminal Server, see:  Using RDPWin Remotely with Citrix or Microsoft Terminal Server.

Sample Data Files - DataCCS.zip & DataVRS.zip

RDP has sample data files that can be used to view all features in RDPWin. These files can be downloaded and installed as follows:

  1. Download the Vacation Rental demo files: DataVRS.zip OR Hotel demo files: DataHCS.zip OR Condo-Hotel demo files: DataCCS.zip.

  2. Click the Save button.  Save the file to the RDP root folder (usually F:\RDP).

  3. Call RDP support at 970-845-7108 to add the demo files to your system.  This process should only take a few minutes and involves the steps below:

    • Create an \RDP\RDPCC folder.

    • Unzip the DataCCS files into \RDP\RDPCC.

    • Note: Make sure to unzip them to the right folder and not to overwrite real data files.

    • Change the \RDP\Resorts text file with Notepad and add the line "CC RDP Demo files".

    • After these steps are complete you can view all features of RDPWin.  RDP-DOS will also work on these files.
