  3. Run the "start.exe" with administrator access.
  4. Dismiss the entry "caution" by clicking continue.
  5. Once installed, launch "Smart-Vue client" from the start menu.
  6. on the login screen, click the ">>" button and enter as the server. Leave the port number as 11000.
  7. At this point, log in using the credentials for your lab. (If you believe you should have access but do not, please contact LSA TS.)
