Before you use your controller, you must install the applications, application updates, and license files that you purchased.
The Trimble Access Installation Manager installs the application updates and licenses to your controller. It also updates your Trimble office software so that it can communicate with the updates being installed to the controller.
Typically, you use the Trimble Access Installation Manager (Online), when you have an Internet connection to access the new software updates.
However, you can download a copy of the Trimble Access Installation Manager (Offline), and all Trimble Access application files and licenses for installation to your controller at a later date, when you may not have an Internet connection. You do need an Internet connection to download the required files.
If you are using a Trimble Tablet, install the Installation Manager directly onto the Tablet. For all other controllers, install the Installation Manager on the office computer that is performing the update.
Note - Before you install the Installation Manager onto a Trimble Tablet controller, you must apply Windows® updates.
When the Installation Manager starts, it connects to the Internet automatically, updates itself if required and then contacts the Trimble hosted server to check the license and application downloads needed to update the software on your controller to the latest version.
Once these files are installed, you can start using the Trimble Access software and any specialized applications or services that you purchased.
An Internet connection and the serial number of all controllers to be updated are required to create a local copy of the Trimble Access Installation Manager (Offline). Use the Create Local Trimble Access Version utility to enter the serial numbers of the controllers to be updated, specify the version of Trimble Access required, and produce a ZIP file for download that contains all the files required to update controllers without access to the Internet. For more information, refer to the Help in this utility.
