This page acts as the “home” page for a small collection of answers for FAQ topics. Use the Navigation links at the right to access the various FAQs in this set.

In addition to the FAQ answers in this set Syscob offers assistance to our users with the following facilities accessible from a web browser:
- “Handy Guides” available under Documents in the User Menu on the Syscob web site. These guides provide step-by-step instructions, with screen captures, that are written to enable users to administer and maintain the application. Before the User Menu can be accessed a user must complete the Create an account process.
- Online copy of the Syscob Admin Guide with coverage of the concepts, requirements and actions needed to administer and maintain the application. Registered users can also download a copy, in Microsoft “HTML Help” format (with full index and search), under Documents in the User Menu on the Syscob web site.
- Information necessary to deal with the security impacts on “legacy” applications (any software that will run on earlier Windows® versions) introduced by Microsoft with Windows 7, Server 2008 and later versions.
- For those who only need to download a specific tool or utility program there is a repository for tools downloads. These include the “Icon & Rego” utilities, the eWinPath utility, “zippers” to collect database files from either Export-It or Export-It Plus and an installer for the latest (Windows 7 aware) support tools that can be installed on systems running a version of Export-It earlier than version C-30.
Syscob strongly recommends that every site using our software have at least one user registered on our web site. Only registered users will receive notification of the availability of updates (for the products they indicate on their registration) by email. And only a registered user can login to the site to download updates. Any IT support organization supporting a Syscob software installation should also consider performing the Create an account process to register as a user and enable access to updates and documentation.
