This article provides a step by step procedure for manually installing and configuring TEKLYNX CENTRAL designer client (CODESOFT and LABEL ARCHIVE).


In this article, we reference two servers:
  • TEKLYNX CENTRAL server = TEK-SVR2-2008
  • UMSS Server=TEK-SVR2-2008


  • If a USB license is used, unplug it
  • You must have local admin rights on the workstation

Follow these steps:

    • LABEL ARCHIVE Client (LAC)
    • TEKLYNX CENTRAL Browser Plugin
  2. Copy files from the server and install on workstation – Copy these files from TC Server c:\Program Files (x86)\Teklynx\CommandCenter) to your workstation and install them the workstation:
    • TCCLIENTPLUGIN.MSI (TEKLYNX browser plugin)
  3. Modify the CS.INI file – At the client computer Modify CS.INI (in C:\ProgramData\Teklynx\CODESOFT 2014) with the following:
    • In [general] section:

  4. Update TC Server Name
