Introduction

To date, the main issues/problems with using the current versions of our software in the Office 2013 environment are:
    1. Multiple security warnings are displayed whenever the software is opened.
    2. The Summit menus at the top of the screen are not displayed.
The purpose of this document is to explain the steps needed to deal with each of these issues.
    IMPORTANT NOTE:
All file and folder locations in this document assume that all Summit products and Office 2013 have been installed in their default folders. You will need to adjust these instructions if the Summit products or Office 2013 are not installed in their default folders.
The default folder for Summit Event Manager Pro (SEMP version 9) is C:\SEMP.
The default folder for Summit Central (SCL version 4) is C:\SUMMIT.

You should select the Access 2013 installation of the relevant product. This example uses Summit Event Manager Pro.
The selected installation program is semp2013.exe. When you attempt to run semp2013.exe you get the following warning:


You should click on Run.

A window will appear with the heading "Install Summit Event Manager - Pro?". To continue with installation process, select 'Yes'.

The installation program should then complete successfully.

Avoiding security warnings when Summit program is launched

You will get security warnings each time you launch a Summit program if you have not specified the Summit software folders as trusted locations. To do this take the following steps:

For Summit Event Manager - Pro run C:\SEMP\mieTrustedLocations.exe

For Summit Central - Pro run C:\Summit\mieTrustedLocations.exe

When you open the Summit program the Summit Menus that are normally displayed at the top of the screen are not present, as shown below:

The Summit menus are now displayed under the Add-Ins tab on the ribbon which is highlighted above. If you select the Add-Ins tab, the Summit menus are displayed as shown below.
