See our Print Release Tour page
Should I run the Release Station software from the Print Server or copy the Release folder to my Mac?
You can run the Release Station software from the central Server, and maintain separate configurations for each release station on the Server where it is easier to modify them all in case of changes.
Alternatively you can copy the Release folder to the Mac workstation and run it from there.
The folder location is at [app-path]\release
The installation process
The process to setup and configure the Release software on a Mac is similar to setting up a Windows Print Release station.
The first step is to browse to the release folder, which is under [app-path]\release Here you’ll find the config.properties file which you can configure to suit your needs as shown here in our
Standard Release Station Configuration article.
Then you are ready to run the Release software in full screen mode by running pc-release-mac.command script
This release contains an updated Java version which no longer supports 32-bit workstations. If you have any 32-bit users launching the User Client or Release Station from a network share, see this Knowledge Base article for more information.
