But, if a systems or IT person is not available to install CareerScope, or you are without the manual, it
is fairly simple and straightforward. Here is an overview of the process for installing on a standalone computer
(this is not for a network installation - only IT people with the manual should probably do that):
- Insert the CareerScope CD. It should start the installation
process automatically. (Otherwise click Start and then Run and Browse your CD ROM drive for the Install.exe file and click
- When prompted, enter
your zip code and the serial number located on the CD. Enter without the spaces – and enter the K as a capital K.
- Click Next for the screens Welcome
Installation Options, leave the default selection of Management System and Assessment Tasks – just click Next
- Select Destination Directory – you will probably want the default. Click Next
- Ready to
Install – click Install
- If your
computer does not have Adobe Acrobat, CareerScope will install it for you.
- After everything has been installed, click Finish
Note: There is also a utility on the CareerScope
CD called the Mouse Practice Utility – for people who are not familiar with using a mouse. You can repeat Steps 1-4
above and select CareerScope Mouse
Practice to install. If your CD does not autostart the process, click Start and then click Run. Type the appropriate CD drive
letter (i.e., D:\) and icsmouse.exe, then click OK. See
the Start-up Guide or the User Guide that is now installed under Help in the CareerScope Management system for more detailed
Note: When you first enter the CareerScope Management System you will
be asked to enter a new password. If you ever forget your password - the serial number on the CD cover will also work to get
you back in the Management System, where you can then click File and Change Password - using the serial number again as the
old password - and then setting and confirming the new password.
Important: When you
first enter the CareerScope Management System, most people would like to change the default so that Job Titles appear
in the Vocational Recommendations sections of the reports. This needs to be configured. To do this, just under
the center of the opening Management System screen, directly under Report Type: next to the Assessment Profile, click Configuration.
In the Current Report Configuration box that appears, in the lowest white-bordered box, click the radio button to change from
No Job Titles to Include Job Titles. This will now be the new system default for printing the main
CareerScope report that is shared with clients.
Don’t forget there is a wealth
of key-word-searchable information in the CareerScope Management System - located under Help in the User Guide.
