Installing Everest SDK on Local Workstation to Support Transaction Manager Web Version


This article explains how to install Everest SDK to support the Transaction Manager Web Version.

Audience: Customer Facing

Environment/Affected Versions: Everest 6 and higher versions

Requirements: Everest Advanced Application server must be installed prior to installing Everest API.

Root Cause:  Transaction Manager, by True Commerce, has a working integration with Everest. They recently released a web version, which allows users to log in on a web page and export their transactions into Everest. 

The web version works fine when accessed from the Everest server, however, it will not work on local workstations. In order to fix this, we need to setup the Everest SDK on the local workstation. 


When you purchase Everest, you will receive the software in a CD-ROM. The Everest Advanced Application Server must be installed prior to installing Everest API.

To install Everest API, do the following:

  1. Insert the CD-ROM into your computer's CD-ROM disk drive.
  2. From the Windows Explorer view, select the Everest SDK folder and double-click the Setup icon.

    - You will see the Everest Advanced SDK - Installation Wizard - Welcome dialog box.
    - The Installation Wizard guides you through the installation process.
  3. Click Next on the Installation Wizard window. You will see the License Agreement dialog box
  4. Select the option I accept the terms in the license agreement to agree with the terms and conditions, then click Next. It is important that you read the License and Services Agreement displayed in the dialog box and accept the terms to proceed with the installation.
  5. You will see the Validate your copy of Everest Advanced SDK dialog box. Enter the serial number and validation code that you received when you purchased Everest, then click the Next button.

    Note: If you cannot locate your serial number or validation code, go to Everest Support or call Customer Support to request for this information.

  6. Enter your username and Organization on the Customer Information window, then click Next.

    Note: You can install Everest API for any of the following users:
    - Anyone who uses this computer (all users): Select this option to enable all the users (whose profiles are defined in the operating system) to use Everest API on your computer.
    - Only for me: Select this option to restrict other users from using the Everest API installed on your computer. Everest API will be accessible only to you.
  7. On the Destination Folder dialog box, click Next to install Everest in the default destination folder.
  8. You will see the Setup Type dialog box which allows you to specify the type of setup (Typical or Custom).

    - Select Typical to install the typical SDK components including Everest API.
    - Select Custom to select or deselect SDK options, which include API and the EDM Case Tool. 
  9. To select/deselect components, click small_icon.PNG displayed beside each component. You will see the following options: 

    This feature will be installed on local hard drive: Choose this option to install the selected feature on your hard disk. Only the selected feature/subfeature will be installed.
    This feature and all subfeatures will be installed on local hard drive: Choose this option to install the feature and all its subfeatures.
    This feature will not be available: Select this option to disable the feature (the feature will not be installed).
  10. If multiple websites are installed on your computer and you are installing the API
    sample component, you will see the Website Selection dialog box. Select the website name from the drop-down list, then click Next. 
  11. On the Ready to Install the Program dialog box, click Install. You will see the Installing Everest Advanced SDK dialog box. During installation, if any other programs are running on the workstation, you will see the Files in Use dialog box. 

    Note: It is recommended that you shut down any programs that are running on your
    workstation, before installing Everest API. This minimizes the risk of installation errors. The Files in Use dialog box lists the programs running on your workstation.

  12. Click Finish to exit the wizard. If you installed the EDM Case Tool, you will see a dialog box requesting you to restart your system. 
  13. Click Yes to restart your system.

Validation: Open the Everest API Object Browser

  1. From the Start menu, select Programs.
  2. Click on Everest Advanced SDK, then select API Object
