Tech Specs

Do not install Entrust Instant ID software on a computer that also runs other Datacard® Suite software. Entrust Instant ID software uses a custom version of software to provide smart card personalization, and its components overwrite any components currently installed. As a result, the existing software installation no longer works. Remove software before installing Entrust Instant ID software. Earlier versions of Entrust Instant ID software used custom Syntera® Customization Suite (SCS) software components, which also must be removed.

Do not install Entrust Instant ID software on a computer that also runs Datacard® ID Works® identification software or Datacard® IDCentre™ software, if the two software applications connect to the same database table and columns.

Software Requirements

A system running Entrust Instant ID must meet the requirements described in this section.
