Step 2: Install FieldGenius.

>There are two basic types of installations of FieldGenius depending upon the operating system in your device.

  • Windows 3.0 device or a Pocket PC device: you can use a special "one-click" install. The one-click install will download and install the software onto your device in one pass. When you select a link below, it will start the one-click install.
  • Windows CE.NET device: you need to download a zip file containing a "CAB" file (or cabinet file). You need to unzip the CAB file and copy it to your Windows CE device. Then double tap the CAB file on your device to start the installation. The CAB files we create are designed to automatically install into the correct location on your device. For example, on a RECON it will install to "Built-in Storage". On a Ranger.net device it will install to "Disk". On the Tracker it will install to "SystemCF".

Note: the installer for the FC1000 is a bit unreliable. We use the Installshield installation system, and they do not seem to support this unit very well. After installing the GPS files, please check to make sure that they were installed in a Mapping directory below the FieldGenius Programs directory. To clarify, the path to the GPS files on the FC1000 must be:

\Storage Card\MicroSurvey FieldGenius\Programs\Mapping

We have seen the installer create a directory on the root of the Storage Card called "MicroSurvey FieldGenius GPS Files". If this happens, please create a Mapping directory and move the files into it. Please call MicroSurvey if you have any questions.
