Before installing any Classic product (On-Screen Takeoff, Quick Bid, and Digital Production Control), be sure your computer meets our System Requirements. System Requirements are minimums necessary to run the product and may not provide acceptable performance. For the latest System Requirements see Related articles - these System Requirements apply to the current shipping versions of our classic products. For product and version-specific System Requirements, see the appropriate article in the User Guide for the Product/Version you are installing.

If you are using an MSI Package for a "distributed" installation, see Related Articles for instructions.

See the Product information page for your product for links to Downloads, Release Notes, User Guides, System Requirements, Training Videos, etc.

Ensure you have your most current Activation Code(s) for the software (activation codes are product/version specific). To retrieve your Activation Code(s), you will need to sign into the Customer Portal. If you do not have access to the Portal, you will need to contact the person at your Company who manages your license inventory. On Center Software is unable to issue Activation Codes directly to users - all codes must be retrieved from the Portal.

Download the software using the link for the version of the software you own, available on the Product Information and Download Pages linked above. Save the installer file to your local hard drive (the desktop is a perfect place, it is easy to find the installer).

Enter in the user and company name to which you want this installation of On-Screen Takeoff registered (this shows up on the "Splash Screen" and is associated with your product license) and click Next

Click Install to continue with the installation - a progress screen displays

When the installation is complete, an information screen displays - review the information and then click Finish
