|MEDITRAXTM SOFTWARE UPDATES
Software updates to keep up with changes in the
occupational health field and advances in technology have always been an integral part
of MediTrax development. Our design team works constantly with seasoned occupational
physicians and occupational health nurses, allied health professionals, finance and billing
"gurus", information systems administrators, clinical program directors, and
individual MediTrax users to ensure the software continues to maintain its "state-of-the-art"
support of experienced occupational health professionals.
We regularly inform our users about the availability of updates, and software updates
are available at this website for immediate downloading by all users with a current Support

If you do not have a valid EULA for MediTrax and a current MediTrax Software Support Agreement,

purposes of updating a "demo" or "trial" copy of MediTrax in order to evaluate its
potential usefulness to you in the event you wish to become a licensed user of the software.
Before attempting to install this update,
see the note below regarding the inability to

To download the latest software update, click the link above.
You will then be prompted to Save or Save As the file to disk.
Click the Save link, and then choose the folder in which you would like to save the update file.
Write down both the exact name of the file, and the folder on your hard
drive in which the file is saved. We highly recommend creating a folder named
"Downloads" on your computer's Desktop (or as a subfolder of your MediTrax
program folder) and downloading the file into that folder, where it will be easy to find.
You may also wish to save it in an empty folder to prevent losing track of it among other files
already on your computer.
The changes implemented in this release are listed here.
With MediTrax, it's not necessary to perform "sequential updating". Each new release
automatically detects the software version currently in use and makes all necessary
modifications to program files.
NOTE: It is NOT necessary to update the desktop shortcut(s) to your
MediTrax program. Once the data tables are updated on the file server, they may be
accessed from any workstation on the network.
NOTE: You may need to temporarily disable Norton Personal Firewall to download this file.
NOTE: If you can't successfully download the file because your Internet connection
breaks off, please try again. If you still have problems, contact MediTrax Tech Support at
|ADVICE YOU'VE HEARD BEFORE
1. Never run while carrying scissors.
2. Never try to beat a train to the crossing.
3. As with any software program, it's a good idea to make a BACKUP COPY of your current
data tables as insurance against power failure, earthquake, fire, flood, rain, hail, hurricane, sleet, pestilence,
tornado, volcanic eruption, plagues of locusts, or any other "it-can't-happen-here" disaster
occurring right in the middle of an update process!
We've tried to take all the guesswork out of backing up your data tables ... just click
Utilities / Database Administration / Backup Data Tables ...
and MediTrax will create a ZIP file containing all your current data. The backup can be created
on your file server or a local hard drive, although we strongly recommend using removable
media such as a flash drive or CD.
MediTrax's downloadable software update files have names ending in ".exe"
and are self-extracting Zip archives. A Zip archive is a package (containing one or more files)
that has been "zipped" to make it smaller and to provide easy downloading of
numerous files simultaneously. An archive that is self-extracting is capable of
Once the file has completely downloaded to your computer, ensure that all users
(including yourself) have exited from MediTrax
and "unzip" the contents of the downloaded file
by simply double-clicking on it. You will be prompted to select the folder in which
your MediTrax data tables are located. The archive will "unzip" itself and
will update the files within your MediTrax folder.
If the self-extraction process displays the message Can't create output file mt5.exe
it is an indication that the MediTrax program is currently in use on one or more workstations. You will again need to
ensure that all users (including yourself) have exited from MediTrax before repeating the self-extraction step. Note
that your server may be keeping the executable program "in use" if another user simply shut down his/her workstation without
NOTE FOR CLIENT-SERVER INSTALLATIONS: MediTrax supports a
"client-server" mode in which the MT5.EXE program executable is stored
on each workstation, and only the data tables are maintained on the file server.
Since network traffic and the load on the file server are reduced by running
the program itself in the memory of each workstation, performance speed can
be significantly enhanced in facilities with large data tables.
If this is the case at your facility, you should FIRST install the update
on your file server, and THEN copy the new MT5.EXE file to each workstation.
Your MediTrax desktop icon should point to the program on the workstation
rather than on the file server.
