If your software is hosted by Blackbaud, refer to How to run a plug-in in a hosted environment.

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 article.

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 Raiser's Edge:
