The simplest way to install CAREWare is to download the CAREWare installer and user manual from the HRSA CAREWare
You will also need to download and install the last .Net Framework
from Microsoft before installing CAREWare.
To actually install CAREWare double click on the CAREWare Setup file. You will be prompted to unzip the files to C:\CW_Setup. Change the directory if you wish. "Run after extraction: rwcarewareinstaller.exe" is the default next action. Click “Finish”. When prompted to run the CAREWare installer, click “Yes”.
When asked to choose which type of install you would like, chose Express Install to install all components of CAREWare. You will then be prompted to install each tier of CAREWare (Business, Client, Database, and Conversion Utility). After all tiers are installed and the database created, you will be able to run CAREWare from the Start menu.
This has been only a brief over view of the CAREWare installation process. More detail can be found in the User Manual and the System Administrators Guide to CAREWare. Both are available for download from the HRSA web site above. If you have specific questions regarding the installation of CAREWare you can email the Help Desk here at firstname.lastname@example.org
or call 1-877-294-3571 between 1pm and 5pm Eastern Standard Time (EST), Monday though Friday for live support.
