Installation and updates:
For installation and some updates, you need admin rights on the computer.
Most updates do not need admin rights.
We release updates periodocally, currently around once a month. eVisitor checks for updates when it is started. If it sees an update, it will prompt you to install it. The updates are less than 20MB, so they tend to load in much less than 1 minute.
eVisitor runs fine on a laptop with a hot-spot internet link. This is very useful for evacuations.
eVisitor runs on a Windows tablet such as a Microsoft Surface. It is best to use a keyboard. While the screens can work with a touch screen, the on-screen keyboard interferes with the fields on the screen.
eVisitor can run on a MAC by installing MS Windows inside the MAC. (details)
Internet / Firewall / Proxy server:
eVisitor uses standard web protocols. Typical machines and networks have full access by default.
If your computer or network has restricted access to the internet or if your firewall or proxy server blocks web sites, you may not be able to install or logon to eVisitor. Have your IT staff add these ports in your firewall's white list:
