Start Menu, navigate to “My Computer” (if Windows XP) or “Computer” (if Windows Vista/Windows 7),
and open your DVD drive folder. In there you will see a “Setup” file as below, simply double click on it to
begin installation.

If you are using a 5.9 Update Disk (the white and black DVD) instead to install the program, please use
your Windows Start Menu to navigate to “My Computer” (if Windows XP) or “Computer” (if Windows
Vista/Windows 7), right click on your DVD drive and select “Open” (or “Explore” if running Windows XP)
5
Once the contents of the disk are open, select and open the “Support” folder.

a network drive to the program installation directory on the host machine. If running Windows Vista or
Windows 7, UAC must be turned off. Instructions are included in the Appendix for both procedures.
To begin, open the mapped network drive. Navigate to the Manager folder. If you are running a
Shopkey branded product, skip this step.

Next open the folder titled Series1 if running Manager or Series2 if running ManagerPlus. If you are
running a ShopKey branded product, select SKSM1 if running Service Writer or SKSM2 if running Shop
Management.

Appendix
Sharing the Host directory for Multi User Installs
Note: File Sharing will need to be enabled in Windows before Share functionality will work.
Example given for Windows 7, older versions may be slightly different.
To begin, open your Windows Start menu and navigate to “Computer”.
24
Next, navigate to the installation drive, this should be Drive “C:” in almost all cases.
Next, select your installation directory. For a Mitchell1/OnDemand product, this will simply by the
“Mitchell1” folder. For a SnapOn/ShopKey branded product, this will be “Snap On”. Right click on this
folder and then select “Properties”.
25
Select the “Sharing” tab and then click on “Share…”
Next, click the dropdown and select “Everyone” and then hit “Add”.
26
Once added, select “Everyone” as below and then under Permission Level click the dropdown and select
“Read/Write”, then hit “Share”.
Once complete, hit “Done”. The share is now complete.
27
Mapping a Network Drive in Windows XP
To begin, open your Windows Start Menu and open “My Computer”.
28
Once open, look to the menu bar at the top of the screen and select “Tools” and then “Map Network
Drive” as highlighted below.
Next, select the desired Drive letter as shown below. Typically this will be the “M:” Drive.
29
Next, select “Browse” as highlighted below.
30
You will then navigate to the Host machine and select the Mitchell1 (or SnapOn) installation directory.
After selecting the installation directory, ensure “reconnect at logon” is checked and then select “Finish”
31
Now the drive should appear similar to the screenshot below, stating the folder name (in this case
“Mitchell1”) and the computer name, along with the drive letter.
32
Mapping a Network Drive in Windows Vista and Windows 7
To begin, open your Windows Start Menu and open “Computer”.
33
At the top, select “Map Network Drive”
Next, ensure the “Reconnect at Logon” box is checked, then select your desired drive letter, typically
this will be “M:” Then click on “Browse…”
34
Next, select the Installation directory (either Mitchell1 or SnapOn) from the Host machine.
After selecting the installation directory from the Host machine, click “Finish”.
35
Once complete, a window will open to the mapped directory. If UAC has already been turned off, you
may begin installation of the workstation immediately.
36
Turning off User Account Controls (UAC)
To begin, open your Windows Start Menu and select “Control Panel”.
Then select “User Accounts and Family Safety”, if set to Category view. Otherwise look for an icon that
simply says “User Accounts”.
37
Once User Accounts and Family Safety is open select “User Accounts” again.
Select “Change User Account Control Settings”.
38
If you are running Windows 7 the following screen will appear. Drag the scrollbar all the way down to
the bottom to where it says “Never Notify” and then select “OK”. If you are running Windows Vista you
will simply uncheck the box labelled “Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer” (no
screenshot provided) and select “OK”. In either case, please reboot the machine before continuing the
installation.
39
Restoring a 5.9 Database
To begin, open your backup file. These are labelled as per the day of the week, starting with Sunday as
“D1”, Monday as “D2”, etc. Our example will use a Friday backup, “D6”.
If using the standard Windows method to open compressed folders, it should appear as below. Right
click on the backup file (in this case “D6.zip”) elect “Extract all…” as below.
40
Next, select a location to unzip the files to. The default directory will suffice in in most instances (usually
a subfolder of the backup directory), noted here as “C:\Backup\d6”. Ensure the checkmark on “Show
extracted files when complete” is checked. Then click on “Extract”.
41
Next, the extract folder should automatically open. You will want to select the database file and the
setup information file. In this example, for a ManagerPlus installation, the Database file is
SMCORE32.MDB (for a ShopKey installation this will be SKCORE32.MDB) and the setup information file is
“Series20.inf”. The setup information file will appear instead as “Series10.inf” if you are running
Manager, or “SKSM10.inf” if your program is ShopKey Service Writer, or as “SKSM20.inf” if it is ShopKey
Shop Management. Select both relevant files, then right click and select “Copy”.
42
Next, navigate to the installation directory MDB folder. The default directory for each type of install is as
below
Manager: “C:\Mitchell1\Manager\Series1\MDB”
ManagerPlus: “C:\Mitchell1\Manager\Series2\MDB”
Service Writer: “C:\SnapOn\SKSM1\MDB”
Shop Management: “C:\SnapOn\SKSM2\MDB”
Once you have navigated to the MDB folder, paste the files into the directory. You will then get a
warning that a file with the same name already exists in the location. Select “Copy and Replace” for both
files.
43
Next, arrange icons by “Type” as below and delete the “lastused.dat” and “statuslk.dat” files.
44
Next, open your Manager program. At the launch screen select “Setup” at the top on the left hand side.
Select “Special Maintenance” at the bottom, and the click on “Reset Last Used Pointers”.
You will then get the following two messages, simply hit “OK” on both, and then the restore procedure
will be finished.
45
Selecting the Reference Source
To toggle the Reference source between the DVD based locally installed Repair and Estimator guide and
the online version, ensure you are at the launch screen and select “Setup” at the top on the left hand
side. Select “Special Maintenance” at the bottom, and the click on “Select Ref Source”.
By Default this is selected to “Local”. If you are using the online version, change it to “Web”
46
Under the rare circumstance you have a Mitchell1 branded Manager program and a SnapOn branded
ShopKey5.com Repair and Estimator guide subscription, or vice versa, select “User Alternate Web
Address”.
47
Toggling Catalogs
To toggle parts catalogs on, ensure you are at the launch screen and select “Setup” at the top on the left
hand side. Select “Special Maintenance” at the bottom, and the click on “Toggle Catalog Availability”.
Once open, you can select from the list which catalogs you wish to toggle on by clicking the radial button
to “Yes” next to each catalog you wish to use. Once all catalogs you wish to use are selected, click on
Save and Exit”.
