These recommendations are for liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) carriers and liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers. For the purposes of this document, the term LPG carrier refers to liquefied gas cargoes carried between the temperature range of 0°C to -104°C. These recommendations do not apply to existing ships, and there is no suggestion that existing ships should be altered.

 

It is recognised that some new gas carrier designs may not be able to conform to all of the recommendations in this document, however, this document is intended to serve as a starting point with a view to minimising differences as much as possible.

Client machines:

 

Windows XP SP2/SP3, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 (except Windows RT) and Windows 10 Operating System (32 bits or 64 bits).

Microsoft .NET 2.0, 3.0 or 3.5 (preinstalled on Windows Vista and Windows 7).

 

Server (shared folder):

 

The network version needs to be installed on a shared network folder where the users have write permission.

The type of file server hosting the shared network folder does not matter (on small networks, it can be a normal workstation).

A DVD-drive is recommended to copy the files to the shared folder but the CD/DVD is not protected so the files can be transferred via a USB memory stick or across the network.

 

After installing the program the eBooks need to be unlocked using the licence code (READ-XXXX-...). This is a one off procedure that can be done from any client PC.

 

Unlocking an eBook for a number of users, for instance 5, will allow up to 5 computers to access the eBook.

This is done on a "first come first served" basis meaning subsequent computers will not be able to access the eBook once the licences are used up.

It is possible to transfer licences between computers (with one limitation: the PC giving up the licence cannot access the same eBook for a week).

 

Remote Desktop Services (Terminal Services) and virtual environments are not supported.
