JOIN (installation)

Decos JOIN Registry

Before you’re able to properly use JOIN you have to install the Decos Join Registry on your computer. This little program makes sure that Microsoft Office can ‘communicate’ with JOIN. All files you create using MS Office can be saved to JOINs with just a few clicks of your mouse. Follow these steps to install Decos Join Registry on your computer:

  1. Go to Start – All programs and choose for Novell ZENworks – ZENworks Application Window
  2. Double click Decos Join Registry 
  3. Go to Start – Configure JOIN NOW  
  4. Select the option Use seperate JOIN Open/Save buttons under Microsoft Word User Interface.
     
  5. Click Save and Close (there’s no need to create a .reg file).
  6. Restart the computer and it's ready for use

JOIN NOW

After installing Decos Join Registry, you have also the possibility to use JOIN NOW. This application provides you the option to easily create and save Microsoft Office files in JOIN. When a Microsoft Office-application (e.g. Outlook, Word, Excel) is opened now there will be one (Outlook) or more “JOIN-Direct” buttons. You want to turn of this option in Microsoft Office?

  1. Go to Start – Configure JOIN NOW
  2. Select the option Disabled under JOIN Now Office Integration

Logging and menu lay-out
