Staffery has been designed to work with Microsoft Windows Server 2003/2008/R2 and Windows 2000/ME/XP/Vista/7/8/10 of Home Premium editions and higher.
Staffery is an ASP.NET 2.0 application, it works under Internet Information Services (IIS) 5.1 and higher or CassiniDev Server (included in the setup package provided, may require administrative rights to run) and .NET Framework 2.0 (included in the setup package provided).
Staffery uses Microsoft SQL Server 2005/2008/R2/2012/2014/2016, including Express Edition and Express LocalDb (the 2014 version of the latter is included in the setup package provided), as data storage.
Attention: the installation process must be run on a computer under a user account with the local administrator privileges.
To initiate the installation, run the downloaded installation file, Staffery_2009_SE_2.4.0.exe. The installation wizard will guide you through the installation process.
If the computer, on which the installation is run, works under Windows User Account Control (UAC) then the appropriate request to install will be prompted. Do not afraid of the «Неизвестно» (Unknown) value in the «Издатель» (Publisher) line if the installation package was downloaded from the official website then it is safe.
On the first step you will be offered to read the license agreement and to decide whether you agree with it or not. If you do not agree then the installation process will be interrupted. And if you agree then using the «Далее» (Next) button you will be able to proceed to the next step.
On the second step you can choose the location to which Staffery will be installed. C:\Program Files\Staffery is the default value, and if it is OK for you then you can click the «Далее» (Next) button to proceed to the next step.
The third step is for informational purposes only on it the installation wizard will show you the list of all third-party components contained in the installation package (required for Staffery to run), and those of them checked are the components that are automatically detected as required to be installed and will be installed indeed (components not checked will not be installed). Take a look and clock the «Далее» (Next) button to proceed to the next step.
On the fourth step you will be able to check what additional tasks the installation wizard should do, particularly:
- whether it should create the «Начать работу со Staffery» (Start Working with Staffery) icon on your desktop (a shortcut to run the web application in your default Internet browser, in addition to the Staffery folder with shortcuts in Start > Programs menu);
- whether it should setup the Staffery web server (CassiniDev Server) so that Windows could start it on its own start;
- whether it should setup the same web server so that it is run under the administrator (use this if without Staffery does not work).
Check the required options and then click «Далее» (Next) button to proceed to the next step.
The fifth step is informational too, on it you can see all the settings and information from the previous steps and then click the «Установить» (Install) button.
During the Staffery installation process not only the web application itself and all used third-party components are installed on the local computer but also the pre-filled database is created, with reference tables specific for the IT industry. If they do not fit you in the Staffery's administrative interface you can always edit them.
On the last step of the installation wizard you will be offered to run the installed Staffery web server and open the Staffery web application in your Internet browser. If you can't wait to work with Staffery then check both options and click the «Завершить» (Finish) button.
Uninstallation is available through Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs.
To run the uninstallation process please find «Staffery, версия 2009» in the list of installed applications and click the Remove button above.
In case of the positive answer to the request of confirmation the uninstallation process will start and automatically remove all the third-party components installed along with Staffery (so that, despite their separate presence in the list, you do not need to select and remove them separately).
During the uninstallation process you will be separately requested confirmation of the database deletion. Answer to the request positively only in case if the database does not contain any valuable information that you want to keep for future usage (first of all, CVs of your employees and your unique reference tables). A saved database will be found and used by a future Staffery re-installation to the same location, without overwriting data.
If the Staffery installation process was correct, and during the application's usage no new files appeared in its folders and the folders of the used third-party components, or if they appeared (for example, the database files) but you confirmed their deletion, then the uninstallation process will be completed with the following message:
Default Administrator User
The installation application creates a default user with administrative privileges in the system. The default administrative user has the following credentials:
- login: domain name of the current user (under whom the application was installed);
- password: password if the same user.
