- Copy the file PlanningPME.pp on this folder
2) Installation of the software: 2 choices
1st choice: Install PlanningPME on the server and create a shortcut of the file PlanningPME.exe on each computer.

Installing PlanningPME according to the first choice, installing the future updates will be much easier.
3) Indicate the location of the database on each computer

For reasons of performances, we advise you to map a network drive on the network path of the server and to precise this drive on the location of the database instead of the entire network path.
