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.
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 completed.
From the page: https://npgsweb.ars-grin.gov/gringlobal/downloads/default.aspx, download the .zip file, near the bottom, under other supporting files. (https://npgsweb.ars-grin.gov/gringlobal/uploads/documents/CT1994_dataviews.zip) Download that zip file to extract the requisite .dataviews file; then import the .dataviews file via the Admin Tool.
Use the Admin Tool to manually create the new code. The code to be added is: Code Group: ORDER_REQUEST_ACTION. Details are in the Curator Tool 126.96.36.199 Overview.
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 188.8.131.52 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.)
