ADDA Frequently Asked Questions

What do I do when I get the warning message that my KeyClient is obsolete?

  • A recent version of the KeyAccess client is needed to use any applications provided through ADDA. If you have an outdated version of the client, you will be prompted to upgrade it.
  • Please uninstall the KeyAccess client on your computer before installing a new version. You can do this by going to Control Panel -> Programs (or Add and Remove Programs) and uninstalling Sassafras K2 Client. You will be prompted to reboot your system after a successful uninstall.
  • The new version of the KeyAccess client is available through the ADDA client interface. The installer is called k2client.exe, or k2mobile.exe if you are using the "mobile" version that includes the KeyCheckout utility. Your system will restart after a successful install.
  • You can verify that the installation of the new version was successful by checking the version of the file c:\windows\keyacc32.exe. Check the version of this file and make sure that it says 7.0.

  • Problems with permission setting - If you have already reset your common password and are still unable to access the ADDA resources, permissions might need to be corrected. Email and we will gladly check and correct this permission error for you.
