The Shop Floor Setup Wizard is intended to be used once, after install. The wizard will automatically import a ‘getting started’ rapidstart as well as perform web service integration.
Search for “Shop Floor Setup Wizard”
Agree to the terms and conditions and choose “Next”.
If you have a trusted Microsoft Partner who is an Insight Works reseller, then you can change the “Contact” to a registered Insight Works reseller. If you are uncertain, or just testing the system, or do not have a Microsoft Partner, or they are not available in the Insight Works reseller list, then choose “Insight Works”.
You will be asked if you will be performing setup. This will automatically add your current user into a special configuration page called “Function Permissions”. This can be changed later on the “Function Permissions” page if necessary. Click “Next”.
A rapidstart file will automatically download and apply. Web services will also automatically be configured. While this is happening, you will see a progress dialog similar to the below. This can take a few minutes.
After the setup is complete you will receive a “Setup Successful” page. Click ‘Finish’ at this point.
