    What are AcquisitionsStart.exe and CatalogStart.exe used for?

    • Product: Voyager
    • Product Version: 8.1.0


    There are two executables starting with Voyager 8 -- AcquisitionsStart.exe and CatalogStart.exe; what are these executables for?


    Prior to Voyager 8, after a new client install, Cataloging and Acquisitions had to be run for the first time by an operator with Administrator privileges on the PC.

    The new *Start.exe files address this issue by allowing operators with more restrictive permissions to launch Cataloging and Acquisitions.

    The *Start.exe files must be used to launch the client for the first time after a new install or client update. The desktop shortcuts for Cataloging and Acquisitions are set to use these executables by default to ensure consistently successful execution of these clients.
