Follow the steps below to install the latest version of PowerFAIDS:

Please install the software update on your individual pc's by following steps below. Be sure you follow step #4 carefully, so that your PFAIDSNET data source is not wiped out.   
1. Close out of all applications on your computer.  Navigate to My Computer 
2. Browse out to N:\Software\PF17.1\Installation_Package (The version of PowerFAIDS may be later than 17.1)
3. Once there, click the PowerFAIDS_Conventional_Install.exe file
4. Click 2nd radio button "Maintain or update the instance of this application selected below."  (this is important--do not click the 1st radio button) 
6. Click Next, Next, Finish
7. Reboot your machine
You can now check PFAIDS to see if we've received a 2012-13 ISIR for a student.  Please also upgrade any laptops you have.
