Installing yuuvis® RAD Add-Ins

Valid for: yuuvis® RAD version 6.x

yuuvis® RAD Add-Ins are optional components of yuuvis® RAD that can be installed on a Windows workstation to transfer and manage document files from Microsoft Office and Microsoft Outlook on the local workstation in conjunction with yuuvis® RAD core-service via yuuvis® RAD agent.

yuuvis® RAD Add-Ins are installed using MSI packages.

Ensure that the System Requirements are fulfilled before installation.

The following add-ins are available:

  • yuuvis® RAD Outlook add-in
  • yuuvis_rad_outlook_add-in_setup-<Version>.msi.

    For the Outlook function 'Send on Behalf', Windows version 10809 and/or the relevant cumulative updates must at minimum be installed on the workstation to ensure that e-mails are created only once.

  • yuuvis® RAD Office add-in
  • yuuvis_rad_office_add-in_setup-<Version>.msi.

  • yuuvis® RAD Template Editor
  • yuuvis_rad_template_editor_setup-<Version>.msi.

    The yuuvis® RAD Template Editor for Microsoft Word embeds controls into documents that are linked to object type fields and object properties. Documents with controls can be integrated as a template into yuuvis® RAD client. When creating a document file from a template, the controls can be populated or replaced with the relevant index data and properties via data transfer.

    The data transfer service is disabled by default in the system settings.

  • Outlook Add-In for Drag&Drop
  • OS_32bit_outlook_add-in_dd_<Version>.msi for Microsoft Windows 32-bit and Microsoft Outlook 32-bit.

    OS_64bit_outlook_add-in_dd_<Version>.msi for Microsoft Windows 64-bit and Microsoft Outlook 32-bit or Microsoft Outlook 64-bit.

    The add-in converts e-mails into the 'EML' format when they are dragged and dropped from Outlook. It is not dependent on yuuvis® RADcomponents and does not require connections to yuuvis® RAD. E-mails must be in the 'EML' format in order to drag and drop them directly into yuuvis® RAD client.

Only the table of contents is specified for the installation. The connection to yuuvis® RAD core-service is established via yuuvis® RAD agent.

The yuuvis® RAD Add-In is enabled automatically and can be disabled/enabled via the Office and Outlook add-in management.
