The NetVue client/server toolkit permits high-speed Web-based viewing of ImageGear supported documents. This package offers enterprise developers all of the benefits of ImageGear plus easy integration to a wide range of repositories. NetVue incorporates AccuSoft's patented NDS, which allows users to access and view documents over the Web up to 20 times faster than the closest alternative.
NetVue Version 4.0.5 Features
NetVue was incorporated into the ImageGear Enterprise Edition (beginning with ImageGear Version 12). This provides a significant benefit in NetVue-based environments in that the advances developed for ImageGear (i.e., additional format support, image handling, etc.) are available via the automated ImageGear update mechanism. Since NetVue is based on ImageGear technology, as ImageGear advances, its features will be automatically available to NetVue.

Important Installation Notes
During the installation process, you will be asked to provide a user account and password for NetVue's services. Make sure the account you provide has "Administrator" privileges and user rights to "Act as part of the operating system."
The NetVue setup program does not make any assumptions regarding your organization’s Web security policies. Immediately after installing NetVue, ensure that you review the security settings for your Web server and make the necessary adjustments as required.
Upon completion of the installation, using Internet Service Manager, ensure that the \IIS_Server_name\default_web_site\cgi-bin folder has been given Execute permissions (Scripts and Executables).
Additionally, the NetVue Server Service is initially set to startup in Manual mode. Once the installation of ImageGear Enterprise is complete, you should set the service’s Startup Type to Automatic.
With this done, feel free to browse to the NetVue Home Page at http://your_netvue_server_name/netvue/index.html for access to samples, documentation and NetVue’s Server Web Tools.
