Download CTI Data Connector - TAPI Link   (Version: 5.7.2)

Launch the installer only from a local hard disk and not from a network drive

You can automate the installation process

Salesforce Login

During the first launch of the application,  you have to type in the Salesforce Login credentials. This is only necessary once. The login credentials are typically the E-Mail address.



The login credentials are saved per Windows Account. Only if another user logs on the same PC using the same Windows account, you have to type in the data again (right mouse click on the blue icon and select Salesforce Login)
