You should use the installation process and not attempt to save the
TAATOOL and TAASECURE libraries from one system and restore to another
system or even another partition on the same system.

If the tools do not already exist on your system, you will need both
*SECADM and *ALLOBJ special authorities to do the initial install. If
they do exist, then you could also do an install if you are on the
TAAINSTALL authorization list with *USE authority.


The TAA Productivity Tools are licensed to a specific serial number
and software tier. You may install the TAA Productivity Tools on an
unlicensed system for a maximum of seven days. After this you will
need a demo license or a full license. Keys for either may be obtained
by contacting TAA Tools support.

You should not attempt to install the TAA Productivity Tools unless
you have at least 2 GB of free space on your system. If you have less
than 2 GB of free space, see the section later in this document. After
the install is completed, the TAA Productivity Tools require
approximately 600 MB.

The TAATOOL objects are shipped in a compressed form. The size of the
TAATOOL library will increase as you use the objects.

The TAA Archive is standard and contains a compressed version of all
of the source. If you have a full license, you may display or 'copy
out' any of the source. After installing, see the CPYTAA, CPYTAA2, or
CPYTAAALL commands to 'copy out' the source.

If you have changed the defaults for the system RSTLIB command in
QSYS, you must change back to the system defaults.


You can contact support by emailing support or calling 507-258-5182.
Telephone support is available Monday through Friday 9:00 AM to 5:00
PM Eastern Time.


Full documentation for all tools is available on our web site:

After installation, all documentation for the TAA Tools is available
within the tool itself. Use the WRKTAA command to see the tool
documentation. Use the HELPTAA command to view all of the "How To"
documentation for the tools.


TAA Productivity Tools installation can be done by physical CD or by
CD image. Installation instructions are found on our web site.
