Preparation for Installation

Before installation, please, check that your target server meets Bulk Check In system requirements.

Also, it is recommended to install ArtfulBits License Manager before (if it is not installed).


1. Installation

Download Bulk Check In installation package from ArtfulBits website, unpack the file, and run Setup.exe:

Note:

You must be a SharePoint Farm Administrator for successful installation. Also "Windows SharePoint Administration" and "Windows SharePoint Timer" should be running on the server:

SharePoint 2007 SharePoint 2010

After system check is finished, click "Next".

After reading License Agreement, click "Accept" and go to next step.

Select one or more web applications and click "Next".

Wait for install to succeed, click "Next" for deployment status details.

2. License Management

Bulk Check In uses Per-Farm License Model (each license is bound to single SharePoint Farm ID). For more details about licensing models please visit License Agreement.

Product works in unlicensed mode for three days from the moment of installation. In this mode all the product features are unlocked same way as with trial license. After these three days either trial license or full license should be entered for product to function.

  • To get Bulk Check In trial license click here.

After ArtfulBits License Manager is installed, go to the SharePoint Central Administration page:

SharePoint 2007 SharePoint 2010

Choose "Operations".
Click on "ArtfulBits License Manager":

Click on "ArtfulBits License Manager":

This page shows all ArtfulBits installed products and their license statuses.

Click on product name to view license details.

If product is not licensed you can click "Enter License" link and enter license key (trial or full) into textbox. For upgrading product edition click "Convert License" and enter new license of target product edition.

Pressing "Activate" button will verify the key and in case of verification success license status will be updated.

Note: in trial or unlicensed mode all product features are available for evaluation. This way you will be able to try each and every feature available in the product line which will give you good understanding of what feature set will be necessary for you and it will be easier to come up with the decision which product edition should be purchased. After trial period expiration full license should be purchased which will determine product edition and available (unlocked) feature set.
