Install & Setup

Step 1. Important!
Disable User Access Control (UAC)

Go to your control panel, click on User Accounts, click 'Change User Account Control Settings'. Move the slider to the lowest setting, Save and Reboot.

Step 2.
Download PC Check In

Download the zip file


Step 3.
Unzip all files into one folder

  • Create a folder on your pc or server
  • Unzip the files into your folder
  • Copy the Run Kiosk link to the desktop

Step 4.
Start PC Check In

After you have unzipped the files into a folder, run the PCCheckin.exe program. You can run it from the exe or from the desktop link.

The program will start but may not be apparent because it runs in the background. You will see it in the tray near the clock as a green check mark on your Windows PC.

This will automatically create a 30 day license. Windows will ask to allow the program through the firewall. Answer Yes.
You may also need to disable any software using port 80

Important! Running the Program

When you run the program for the first time, it will ask permission to use port 80 though the firewall. This is needed for workstations to connect.

Once you have installed PC Check In, the fastest way to see everything is to run it on the machine you installed it to. Run the program. You should now have a green check mark running in the tray (bottom right, by the clock).

Now open a browser to http://localhost

From there you can configure the touch screen and other features.
The default password is "mciadmin"

Step 5.
Setup the Touch Screen Interface

First, make sure your system has Internet Explorer 11. Next, create a new shortcut on the desktop to the following link;

"c:\program files\internet explorer\iexplore.exe" -k "http://localhost/pc"

Be sure to include the quotes. You may be able to copy and paste this link. You may have to type the link into a shortcut.

OR...The folder contains the shortcut file. You may right-click the file and create a shortcut on your desktop.

Step 6.
Create a Shortcut for each Workstation

Your workstations will need to connect to the Check In system to see the live list of customers. Create a shortcut on the desktops to the follwing link;


Replace 'computername' with the name of the system you installed the main software
