Help Installing CEM
Insert the CEM CD into the drive; the installation package will load if Auto Insert Notification is enabled. If AutoRun does not launch, select Run from the Start Menu, and type in X:\Setup.exe where ‘X’ is the letter assigned to the CD ROM drive in your system.
Important: CEM only runs on Windows 95, 98, NT (4.0 or better with SP 5 or better), 2000, XP, Vista and Windows 7 & 10. Default setting in the installation package forces the system to be installed in a folder named “CEM”. You may place this folder anywhere on your system. Default location is: C:\Program Files\Veri-Tech\CEM. The CEM requires Microsoft Internet Explorer. Note: you do not have to use IE as your default web browser.
Software Key Installation:
The first execution of CEM will bring up a Dialog Box providing a Unique ID and asking you to enter an Unlock Number to activate the software. Please
and provide us with your serial number and Unique ID. We will reply with the required Unlock Number. This procedure can also be handled by telephone at (682) 213-2378.
Windows NT, Windows 2000, XP, Vista, and Windows 7 & 10, CEM allows multiple users on the same computer to use the software. The installer must have administrative privileges. In order for non-administrators to use the software, a user with administrative privileges must install the software and run CEM for the first time in order to unlock the program. Once the program is unlocked, any user on that machine may execute CEM.
Hardware Key Installation:
CEM is designed to run on a single PC. The hardware security software and drivers must be installed on all PCs where CEM will be run. The CEM requires Microsoft Internet Explorer. Note: you do not have to use IE as your default web browser.
Important: CEM and security software only run on Windows 95, 98, NT 4.0, 2000, XP, Vista, or Windows 7 & 10. For NT 4.0 installations of the CEM you will need to be sure to have Service Pack 4 or later already on your system prior to CEM installation.
Important: USB key users only – remove all USB keys before beginning the installation process; connect the USB key after the completion of the installation process.
Insert the CEM CD into the drive; the installation package will load if Auto Insert Notification is enabled. If AutoRun does not launch, select Run from the Start Menu, and type in X:\Setup.exe where ‘X’ is the letter assigned to the CD ROM drive in your system. The following screen should appear:
Select “Install CEM” and the installation process will automatically install the latest Sentinel System Drivers and Server Software.
Important: If Sentinel Security Software has previously been installed on your system, you should not re-install the software. Though unusual, a message might appear during the CEM installation requesting that you uninstall the Sentinel System Drivers before a successful installation of CEM can be accomplished. Normally you can do this by going to Start/Settings/Control Panel/Add or Remove Programs to uninstall the drivers. When the drivers have been removed, you return to the CEM installation screen and reinstall CEM. This operation should not impact use of other Sentinel hardware keys on your system.
Important: If you are installing both the CEM and CEDAS, ONLY install the Sentinel software one time; cancel out of the Sentinel Wizard for the installation of the second CEM or CEDAS product.
There are three additional buttons on the CEM install screen.
- After installing CEM, there is a Network Monitoring Tool button on the install screen that runs a search code for your system. If this tool finds your hardware key, it confirms proper installation of the Sentinel Security Software. The hardware key we provide will not work over a LAN.
- If you encounter a problem during or after the installation with the Hardware Key not working properly on your system, there is a HELP button on the CEM Install screen for additional troubleshoot information.
- The Field Exchange Utility is used if we are required to remotely reprogram your Hardware Key. Instructions will be given at the time this activity is needed.
If you have any questions you may E-Mail for the quickest response.
Memorandum for users with Windows 7 or 10:

1. Unplug the USB key
2. Download the latest Sentinel driver (7.6.1) from www.setupmykey.com
3. Plug in the key
Memorandum to all MS Vista and Windows 7 & 10 Users:
HELP files for CEDAS and CEM
Microsoft no longer supports WinHlp32.exe in the newer operating systems. To be able to view HELP files on your computer you must go to www.support.microsoft.com to first validate your system and then download and install the necessary file to enable reading the *.HLP files that come with CEDAS and CEM. See the below JPEG for MS site information. Customers found there are two possible files to download. They could not determine which file to use – they initially picked the wrong file and our PC indicated it was incompatible. They downloaded the second file and successfully installed it. Help files in both CEDAS and CEM worked as expected. Call (682) 213-2378 if you need help.
