PBC Workstation Setup


The procedure to initialise a new work station is as follows:

2.Go to "P" drive and open the "Oinsight" folder.

3.Click on "Client Setup" (Not the clientfiles folder).

4.Client Install1

5.Client Install2

6.Press I Accept... check box

7.Client Install3

8.Use the default installation folder. Press Next.

9.Client Install4

10.Press No for the .NET 4.0 framework (Not required for PBC)

11.Client Install5

12.Press Ok to continue.

13.Client Install6

14.Press No for other multi valued databases.

15.Client Install7

16.Press OK to continue.

17.Client Install8

18.Tick the check box to "Do not create a shortcuts" then press install.

19.Press OK on all the installed modules.

20.Client Install9

21.Untick the check box "view the read me" to prevent displaying the read me and press Finish.

22.Create a shortcut pointing to p:\oinsight.exe. This can usually be copied from the "p:\temp" folder.


Press the newly created PBC icon to test PBC functionality. The first time the user name and password are required to log into PBC. Subsequent PBC log in will default the last user name for this work station.

23. Map a network drive to store reports and email attachments. This is pointing to a location uniquely associated to each window user. This network drive is defined in the report controls file.


Setting up PBC Desktop Icon:



A sample of the Icon is usually located in the Temp folder on P drive. Once located copy this icon to you desktop.


Right click on the icon to change the options.


C:\Revsoft\Oinsight\OINSIGHT.exe /ap=pbc /un=cm


The above example is the simplest form of logging into PBC where:

/Ap=pbc        where pbc is the application name

/un=cm                where un is the OI user login name


For a more extensive logon where multiple databases are required then use add the following options:


/dp=p:\data.other where dp is the Data Path


/pbc=p:\pbc_main.other        where pbc is the location of the control files used to store user data if more than one user set is required.
