D2. How Do I Install the timeSensor Client for Windows?


In a multi-user environment, every workstation has its own timeSensor LEGAL client. The version of the client must match that of the server. Follow these links to download the timeSensor client:

timeSensor Client v16 for Windows

Under Windows, install the client in the user's document folder, to make sure the user has full read and write access. Add a shortcut to the taskbar to simplify user experience.

When using timeSensor LEGAL, the timeSensor Client will continuously communicate with the 4D server. You will need a perfect network connection. If in doubt, test your connection with a PING test. Make sure that all machines, including laptops, are connected with a cable. WLAN connection is not strong enough, and small interruptions will cause the connection between the timeSensor client and the 4D server to fail.

Make sure that the workstation does never go into sleep mode by adjusting the settings accordingly.

Virus Scanner/Windows Defender

Please switch off the virus protection for the following paths, otherwise the software will be significantly slower or may not start at all, or shows a malfunction:

  • Path where the Client App is installed
  • Path in which the resources are located

The standard paths are the following:

  • C:\ProgramData\timeSensorProgram\timeSensor Client
  • C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Local\timeSensor

First Connection to the 4D Server

Start the timeSensor client after installation. In general, the timeSensor client will find the 4D server automatically and the login window will show up.

If the timeSensor client does not find the 4D server, you will be asked to enter the network address of the server in the dialog box. Enter the name of the application ("timeSensor LEGAL") and the IP address of the server, then hit OK.

The next time you start the client, it will remember the 4D server's IP address and find it automatically.
