How do I install CCH® ProSystem fx® Scan Administrator?

Our dedicated Installation and Training team will handle your initial installations of Scan Administrator, Scan Workstation, and PDFlyer. Your firm will receive an e-mail that explains this process and provides dates and times when our team will complete the installation and train your staff.
If you need to do a new installation of Scan Administrator at a later time, first verify that the computer meets the CCH® ProSystem fx® Scan: System Requirements. Then, use the procedure below to install Scan Administrator. This procedure is valid beginning with Scan v14.

To install Scan Administrator, do the following:

  1. Log in to the server or dedicated workstation where you plan to install Scan.
  2. Use CCH Software Delivery Manager to download the Scan installation file (prosystem_fx_scan x.x.x.x.exe).
  3. Right-click the prosystem_fx_scan x.x.x.x.exe file and select Run as Administrator.
  4. Click Next.
  5. Review the License Agreement.
  6. Click I Agree.
  7. If needed, change the destination folder where Scan should be installed by clicking Browse and navigating to the new location.
  8. Click Install, and then wait for the installation to complete.
  9. Select the permission key option for this installation. The options are as follows:
    • Evaluation version. This option allows you to use Scan for a limited evaluation period. Do not select this option if you have purchased a Scan license, as it will expire and suspend all jobs until the permission key is updated.
    • Use existing permission key. If a permission key is detected on the server, this option is selected by default, and there is no need to select a different option. If a permission key is not detected, this option is disabled.
    • Use permission key from drive path. Select this option to browse to a permission key that is stored in a folder on the network or on a disk drive. Enter the location of the permission key, or click the browse button (...) to locate the file. You must use the Software Delivery Manager to download the permission key; see our article "How do I download a permission key for CCH® ProSystem fx® products?" for more information.
  10. Click Next.
  11. Click Finish.
  12. If prompted, restart the computer.
  • CCH® ProSystem fx® Scan Administrator installation requires a license and firms must not install CCH® ProSystem fx® Scan Administrator on more systems than their current licensing permits. CCH® ProSystem fx® Scan Workstation installations don't require additional licensing, so firms can install CCH® ProSystem fx® Scan Workstation on as many computers in the Windows network as they need. Firms should take care that they do not mistakenly install CCH® ProSystem fx® Scan Administrator rather than CCH® ProSystem fx® Scan Workstation on users' systems.
  • CCH® ProSystem fx® Scan Administrator and CCH® ProSystem fx® Scan Workstation will only operate in and be supported by CCH in a Microsoft Windows Operating System environment that meets our current system requirements listed in our public article 000206928 "CCH® ProSystem fx® Scan: System Requirements ". CCH® ProSystem fx® Scan Support is not permitted to assist with installations in environments not listed in the article.
