Refer to the ‘Installation and Configuration Guide’ to step you through the process of setting up the wizard.

TIP:  Use the online guide and go to the  ‘Steps – Installation and Configuration’ section. Make sure that you follow the steps. A common issue is that the packages are not installed into the database in step 3.

Shared Installation Script

When you download a More4Apps product,  two links will be emailed to you:
  • Shared Installation Script   e.g. install.zip
  • Product Installation File      e.g. Asset_Wizard_1.1.72.zip

The Shared Installation Script installs the m4aps_xml package that is shared across all More4Apps Wizards. If you are installing multiple products, you will only need to run the ‘Shared Installation Script’ once per Oracle Instance.

The Product Installation File installs the specific product package(s) required for the associated wizard, each product installation file needs to be installed once per Oracle instance.

If our support team request that you install the latest “Shared Installation Script” or “XML Package”, click on one of the links below.  (NB. If you have downloaded a product you will also have the same link in your email). Choose the script that relates to your instance of Oracle (i.e. Release 11i or 12):

If you have any questions regarding installation or upgrade of products, contact us via the Request Product Support page for FREE INSTALLATION SUPPORT.
