Yes, in order to install the Standards on Disc software the user has to be an administrator of the computer in which they wish to install. If their company or industry has restrictions on admin rights, a user with admin rights will have to install this software for them. In many cases, this is IT staff. However, the Mac User install instructions will allow access to the Table of Contents containing standards without software installation. This is an alternative if the user does not have admin rights.
Unfortunately this is due to improper installation. The Main Menu of the CD will display implying installation was completed properly. Unfortunately, however, this is not the case and the user will not be able to access any files. Please unistall, and refer to the installation instructions to assist in re-installation.
No, once the CD is properly installed, re-installation is not necessary on the same computer, however the software will not run unless the CD is in the user’s CD drive. If the user is prompted to reinstall after the CD is reinserted, on the same computer, please choose Cancel. It will not affect software functionality.
Once the disc has been reinserted in the computer CD drive, choose the ASTM BOS Volume XX.XX file.
