PinkNotes® v4 Installation Instructions & Tips

Postby JasonG » Mon Sep 29, 2008 8:35 am


In PinkNotes® Plus there are two pieces of software. The PinkNotes® Master (which is the server side of the software) and the PinkNotes® Client. Only one computer on your network needs to have the PinkNotes® Master installed on it. On the rest of the computers, that you would like to be able to send and receive PinkNotes from, just install the PinkNotes® Client. If needed, you can install both the PinkNotes® Master and a Client on the same machine.


    1. Go to the machine that you would like to setup with the PinkNotes® Plus Master software.
    2. Download and locate the installation file name 'pnp4xxd3.exe'.
    3. Double-click on the installation file to begin.
    4. Follow the instructions in the installation wizard. The main option you need to specify is what you would like to install. Make sure you place a check mark next to "Master" (and "Client" if you would like both on this computer).


    5. When the installation is done the PinkNotes® Master will startup automatically.
    6. The first time the PinkNotes® Master starts up it will display the welcome screen. In the welcome screen you will be shown the address you need to use to connect the PinkNotes® Clients to this machine. Make sure you make a not of this address.

NOTE: When the PinkNotes® Master starts up for the first time you may be prompted by your software firewall that a new program it trying to communicate on your network. Make sure that you select to unblock the PinkNotes® Plus Master or you will not be able to connect any PinkNotes® Clients to it.

If you are not prompted by Windows asking if you would like to allow the PinkNotes® Master to communicate on your network and your Windows Firewall is on, you will probably need to manually add an exception into the Windows Firewall settings. For instructions on how to add the PinkNotes® Master into the list of programs that can pass through your Windows Firewall, visit: viewtopic.php?f=30&t=22


    1. Go to a machine that you would like to setup with a PinkNotes Plus Client.
    2. Locate the installation file 'pnp4xxd3.exe' and double-click on it to start the installation wizard.
    3. When the Client installation is complete you will see the PinkNotes® Client login screen open up.


    4. Type in the username that you would like to use with PinkNotes Plus. You can use any name you would like.
    5. Type in the address of your PinkNotes® Master in the "Computer name or IP address" field and then click the Start button. If you are not sure what the address is of your PinkNotes® Master and you are on the same network as the PinkNotes® Master you can click the "Scan for Master" button to try and automatically find the Master address.
    6. The first time you connect a new user to the PinkNotes® Master you will be asked if you would like to create that new username. Say 'Yes' to that and you will then be asked if you would like to use a password or not. Passwords are not required.

NOTE: The first user that you connect to your PinkNotes® Master will be setup as your PinkNotes® Administrator. This is the user who will be access and change any settings on the PinkNotes® Master form any PinkNotes® Client they are logged in from.

Follow these same steps on any other computers that you would like to setup with the PinkNotes Plus Client.

To get the installation file for PinkNotes® Plus onto all of your computers you can either put the installation file in a shared folder on your network that all your computers can access or you can download the Client only installation file as many times as you would like for each machine.
