Preparing your system

FsXPand/FsClient is a server-client application running over your network using the UDP protocol. FsXPand is the server, providing FS data for the panels created by FsClient
FsClient is the client program that talks with FsXPand and displays a panel. You can have as many clients as you wish.
- First of all, setup your network, make it publicly accessible for the first time, so you can read and write to files on the shares on your computer. You can add restrictions later on.
- You have to be logged in as Administrator, both for installing and for running FsXPand and FsClient.
- See to it that you are logged on on all your machines using the same account and password. You have to be known as a user on any PC you log on onto remotely.

Special precautions for Windows 7
FsXPand/FsClient cannot run under UAC. You have to switch it off entirely, or switch it off only for Administrator. If you don't, you wil have the message : Unexpected error, quitting. Windows is unable to find out why a program doesn't run since it won't allow it even to get past its own fence before the problem is properly examined.
If your version of Windows 7 is unable to swicth it off (yes, that is possible) do it by clicking a REG file: http://cockpitsolutions.com/downloads/DisableUACforAdministrators.zip. This file will allow you to switch the feature on or off at will.

The use of shares
The programs will create a share to their installation folder. In pre-Win7 systems, there was write permission automatically. With Windows 7, only read is enabled by default. So you have to set the permissions explicitly after installation (see below). If you don't, you will get the message: Could not write to \\yourcomputername\FsClient\FMS
Note: You can get the same message on Windows XP if you removed the share and you have recreated it manually. Then the share will be read-only by default.
