Before installing the update

You must already have FirstReport for OSHA installed and registered to use the update.

Installing a FirstReport for OSHA update will not affect your existing data, but it will break the connection between the program and the data. Since you will need to reconnect to your data, you will need to know where your data file is located if it is not in the default location (C:\1report40\1reportdata.mdb). To verify the location of your data file, open FirstReport for OSHA before installing the update. Click File on the menu bar at the top of the screen and select Data Path. The path to your data file will be on the bottom line of the list that is displayed. Write it down.

Downloading the update

Click on the link to download the update file. A dialog box will appear that will prompt you to "Run this program from its current location" or "Save this program to disk". (The disk is the hard drive of your computer, not a floppy disk.) Select Save this program to disk and click OK.

Another dialog box will appear that will prompt you to select a location on your hard drive to save the file. There is a white field at the top of this dialog box labeled Save in. If Desktop does not appear in this field, click the drop-down arrow on the right side of the field and scroll up and select Desktop.

The File name field at the bottom of the dialog box should display update4xx.exe. (The 4xx in the file name represents a 3 digit number beginning with 4, such as 425, 441, 443, etc.) Click the Save button to begin the file download. The download should take between 30 seconds and five minutes, depending on the speed of your Internet connection. When the download is complete, close Internet Explorer. An icon labeled update4xx.exe should be on the Desktop of your computer.

Installing the update

Make sure that FirstReport for OSHA is closed before proceeding. Double-click on the update449.exe icon on your Desktop. A WinZip self-extractor dialog box will open. Click the Unzip button. Enter the password and click OK. (The password is case sensitive, so enter it exactly like you received it.) After the file has unzipped, click OK and Close.

Running the program for the first time after installing the update

Start FirstReport for OSHA.

You will be prompted to open a database. If you are prompted to open a database, browse to the location of your data file and select it. When you have connected to the data file you will see the Main Menu.

Click on Search For an Existing Incident Report. Click the Search button. Verify that your data is intact. You are finished.

Cleaning Up

After the installation is complete, you may delete the update4xx.exe file from your Desktop.
