Welcome to CDM+ 10.1

Welcome to CDM+ Church Management Software. CDM+ is a comprehensive suite of programs built around a powerful, efficient database. CDM+ allows you to maintain and manage the information so vital to growing ministries … membership records, financial information, pastoral visits and much more.

This guide will help you install and launch CDM+. See the CDM+ 10.1  Server Setup and Client Setup pages for further instructions. If you are upgrading from an earlier version of CDM+, refer to the appropriate Upgrade/Conversion Guide. For more information on using the software, please consult the online Manuals.

System Requirements

Please Note! If you are running CDM+ 10.1 locally on a stand-alone Macintosh or Windows computer, it is considered the database server. Click here for complete CDM+ System Requirements

General Installation Info

NOTE:  These instructions are written for a multi-user, networked environment. If you only use CDM+ on one computer, that computer is considered both the client and the server; you may ignore any instructions regarding additional client computers.

Important note for those running CDM+ over a network:  The first computer on which you install and run CDM+ 10.1 MUST be your database server. You may install CDM+ on other computers (called clients) while the server completes installation, but do not launch CDM+ on any client until the server displays the Login window.

Firewalls

For CDM+ 10.1 to run, you need to allow access on port 9566 and/or to the PostgreSQL (postgres) and CDM+ 10.1 (cdm+.exe) programs. This will need to be done for other third-party Windows firewalls (e.g. Norton or Symantec). The built-in Mac OS X firewall must also be configured when multiple clients are using CDM+. For the built-in Windows Firewall nothing needs to be done as CDM+ will configure the firewall appropriately.

Security Software during installation

During the installation process of CDM+ 10.1 on Windows, you should disable the following items:

  • Firewalls
  • Anti-Virus Software
  • Anti-Spyware
  • Windows Defender
  • User Access Control (UAC)

When installation is complete, you can turn these items back on.
