The Remove Duplicate Synchronization Addresses plug-in removes duplicate addresses added after running synchronization. The plug-in creates a comma separated values (.csv) file that lists all the Raiser's Edge Record IDs affected by the plug-in. After running the plug-in, review the .csv file.

Note: Before you proceed with the following instructions, back up the database. If your organization integrates multiple Blackbaud products, refer to the Additional Requirements section of the backup solution.

Note: Print and read all of the following instructions before running the plug-in.

  1. Log in to the workstation as a local administrator
  2. Download the appropriate plug-in for your version of The Education Edge:
  3. Save RmvIntAddr.exe to the local hard drive of any workstation with The Education Edge installed
  4. Double-click RmvIntAddr.exe
  5. When prompted, unzip the files into the \Plugins folder on the workstation. (The default path is C:\Program Files\Blackbaud\The Financial Edge\Plugins.) The EXE file is a self-extracting zip file which contains RmvIntAddr.dll and RmvIntAddr.vbd.
  6. Register RmvIntAddr.dll on the workstation
  7. Have all other users exit and sign out of The Education Edge
