RE: Release of 2000-2001 EDExpress Version 6.0
The U.S. Department of Education is pleased to announce the release of 2000-2001 EDExpress for Windows, Version 6.0. This release contains the Global, Application Processing, and Packaging modules for the 2000-2001 cycle.
Beginning with the 2000-2001 software cycle, the EDExpress software will no longer be mass distributed in diskette format. Instead, EDExpress for Windows, Version 6.0 (and all subsequent versions) must be downloaded from the Departments SFAdownload Web site, located at http://www.fsadownload.ed.gov. The 2000-2001 EDExpress Installation Guide and the Version 6.0 Cover Letter, which contain important information you should review as a software user, must also be downloaded from the SFAdownload Web site.
As EDExpress for Windows, Version 6.0 is a 32-bit program, you must have Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows NT as your PC workstation operating system. Other system and network requirements are outlined in the Installation Guide.
Version 6.0 is available on the SFAdownload Web site in two formats. You can download the entire software in one file, called EDExpress60.exe, or you can download the software in eight separate installments, which can then be copied to a network drive or diskettes. Please review the download and installation instructions contained in the Installation Guide for more detail.
As in previous cycles, EDExpress can be installed in a standalone or network environment. In a standalone installation, all programs files, including the software database, are installed and stored on the hard drive of a single PC.
For network installations you must first run a network server install, designating a network drive location for your EDExpress database. Once the server install is complete, you must run network workstation installations on all PCs which will access the networked database, designating the correct network drive and directory during each installation.
If you need any assistance connecting to the SFAdownload site or downloading EDExpress in single or multiple file format, please contact Title IV WAN Customer Service at 800-615-1189, or via email at T4WAN@NCS.COM.
