The downloaded Drumlin kit zip files contain two files, setup.exe and a Microsoft Install file, .msi - extract these two files to a temporary directory and run setup.exe - you will be guided through the installation process. Installation creates a Drumlin Security directory and subdirectories occupying less than 10Mb of disk space. The Drumlin program itself is small and does not load any add-ins other than the Microsoft .NET2 framework. In almost all cases your PC will have .NET pre-installed as part of the original Operating System installation.

AdminApp Download

The new release of the Drumlin AdminApp (Administration program) is used to create authorization codes, license files, track activity and more. To download the new version of AdminApp please use the AdminApp setup file via this link:: Drumlin Admin App Install kit). After downloading the setup file file, run it and if possible accept the default directories it offers you. Then run the AdminApp.exe program - you may wish to create a desktop shortcut for this program.

Details on how to use AdminApp are provided via the PDF documentation page. Note that to use AdminApp you must first be a registered user of Drumlin, which will involve providing a username and password at the time of registration. This will result in a user record for you being made on our DRM server, including these details plus a unique userID for you. When you create a new secure PDF using Drumlin, your unique userID is associated with these documents. The AdminApp enables you to see the list of these documents, to create codes for them, and to track details of code usage and other activity relating to your documents. To use AdminApp you must be enbled by us first, which will include enabling your userID for a specific number of codes (e.g. 1200, 3000) over a specific period (start date/end date).
