Curator Tool Installation

The Curator Tool is the GRIN-Global client application used by a genebank's staff to access the GG database; it is not the database.

Installing the Curator Tool involves several steps that must be followed closely. Please download the Installation Guide and review before installing.

Note Regarding Release 1.9.9.4

This release expects some additional dataviews to be installed and one new Code added. A GG database administrator managing the server will need to do this. At NPGS, this has been ompleted.

Upgrading from 32-bit CT Versions

Recent Curator Tool (CT) versions have been 64-bit. However, if you are upgrading from a CT whose version is 1.9.8.14 or older, you should completely uninstall it using Windows. (If you are unsure of the current CT version, start up the CT – the version is displayed in the CT’s title bar.)
