Instructions for installing Day Surgery as a stand-alone application are also available from the MedicalDirector Knowledge Base at http://www.medicaldirector.com/kb

 

 


Before You Begin

In order to run Day Surgery, you must have Microsoft Access installed and ensure that its ‘Macro Settings’ have been enabled.  The procedure for doing this varies between versions of Access. Please consult your Systems Administrator if you require assistance.

 

 


Installing Day Surgery on the Server Computer

1.      Insert the Day Surgery CD to your computer’s CD drive. If you are prompted by windows to take any action, ignore/cancel it.

*MedicalDirector’s naming conventions for the Day Surgery folder dictate that NSW is the only State where the folder is named ‘DS’. All other states include a suffix: VIC = DSV, DSQ = QLD, DSS = SA, DSA = ACT, DSW = WA.

 

3.      Navigate to the Day Surgery CD.

4.      Locate and copy the three Day Surgery database files: DS Data.mde, DS Episodes.mde, DS.mdb.

6.      Right-click each file, select ‘properties’, and then from the Properties window that appears, ensure the Read-only check box is unticked.
