Delegate Tracker - Installation Guide

Our Delegate Tracker is usually deployed using Microsoft's Click Once technology which allows Navitas Solutions to publish new versions to our central server and have all users automatically upated with the latest features and functionality with minimal overhead.

The following outlines the process required to download and prepare the workstation to run the application.

There are additional instructions provided for customers who utilise a Citrix/Terminal Services type environment.

Pre-Requisites for install

.net Framework
The Decoder Suite has been developed against version 4.6.2 of Microsoft’s .net framework, so this must be available on the workstation before the application will launch. If the workstation does not have this installed it can be downloaded directly from Microsoft’s website.
Web Services Access
All Navitas Solutions products communicate with a series of web services to access data tables for the purpose of decoding GDS codes and to provide licence control. If your agency has a proxy installed or a firewall that limits internet communication then please see our FAQ page on the for information on the web addresses and ports that need to be configured as either “bypass” or “allow” on your network.
Travelport (Galileo / Apollo) Users Only
The application utilises the latest version of the Desktop XML API which often requires the workstation to be upgraded. Navitas Solutions makes a ‘Pre-Requisites’ installer available on our web site to ensure the workstation has the latest files, please follow the additional steps below
Navigate to

The Delegate Tracker installation must be performed on each workstation that requires access to the system

Go to Click the relevant installation for your company set up. This is usually the Integrator Install link.

The installer will launch and open the Welcome page. Click Next to continue.

The installer displays the License Agreement that must be agreed to in order to continue with the install.
Select "I agree to the terms of the license agreement" and click "Next" to continue.

Tick the appropriate box to select if you are an Amadeus, Sabre or Galileo user - select as many boxes as necessary for the specific machine!

The Installer is now ready to perform the installation, click "Next" to continue.

Once complete, the Installation Successful screen is displayed.
Click "Finish" to exit the installer.

NOTE: On some Windows configurations, the Program Compatibility Assistant may display a message to say the program might not have installed correclty - this is in error, simply click "This program installed correctly" to close the installer.

NOTE: The tool can be run from the C: Navitas folder, or the Start Menu - please see the below information on how to configure short cuts for each GDS environment.
If your agency only needs to run the solution from the Start Menu (for example during testing), then after the above instllation has finished, navigate to the c:\navitas directory and double click the 'DecoderSuite.appref-ms' application file to download and install the application directly.

Installation Guide - Citrix / Terminal Services environments

Go to Click XCopy (Zip)

You must mark the download ZIP file as safe BEFORE extracting the contents, so right click on the ZIP file and select PROPERTIES from the menu.
Select the 'Unblock' check box below the advance button, and click Apply.

Expand the contents of the ZIP file into the recommended c:\navitas\NavitasDelegateTracker directory on your server(s).
NOTE: You can choose a different directory if required, but is must be physically on the server where .net 3.5sp1 is installed

Configuring the Start Menu
Once copied, configure the Start Menu with a shortcut to the C:\navitas\NavitasDecoderSuite\DecoderSuite.exe file. If the solution is being tested by a select group of users, then please only make the shortcut available to the individual users. Please see the relevant Appendix to also configure the GDS Toolbar button required to launch the application.

Initiating a ‘First Run’
Due to further limitations with Citrix environments, and as the solution makes use of .net and WPF technologies, the application must be run at least once, by an administrator, on the server. To do this, launch and sign in to the GDS to be used. Double click the c:\navitas\NavitasDecoderSuite\DecoderSuite.exe file so that it is compiled and launches. Once the interface has appeared on screen it can be closed.
