  1. Download c32files.exe from here.
  2. Create a new folder on your desktop or server named cart32 and run c32files.exe in this folder.
  3. Copy this folder to the cgi-bin of the site that will be running Cart32
  4. Copy these six files also into the /cgi-bin/ folder:
    cart32.exe, c32web.exe, pthash.dll, cart32.dll, Cart32Control.cab, and Cart32Control7.cab
  5. Create a new file named cart32.ini in the cgi-bin of the site that will be running Cart32, open it and add the following two lines and save:

    [MAIN]
    AdminDir=c:\vhost\inetpub\YourSite.com\cgi-bin\cart32\

    Note: The AdminDir is the server path to your cart32 folder. It will likely be different based on how your server is set up. Please also remember to put the trailing \ or you will receive an error.

  7. Run c32web.exe in a web browser (e.g. http://www.yoursite.com/cgi-bin/c32web.exe). The verifydatabases process should automatically run to get your database up to date with all of the new tables for the latest version. 
  8. Once that is done, refresh your browser to get to the license screen
  9. Put in the license information provided after you purchased the license.
  10. To be safe, run verify databases again by adding /verifydatabases at the end of c32web.exe (e.g. …c32web.exe/verifydatabases).
