General Software Information
Software compatibility and requirements
Supported operating systems are: Windows XP through Windows 10. 1 GB RAM recommended. Currently, the only runtime requirement for KANINE software is the .Net Runtime 4.0 or better.
Network server requirements
Typically, where KANINE is installed on local user computers, nothing is required to be installed on the network server. In many situations a copy of the database folder is placed onto the network server in a shared, accessible location so that users can export data to a single, shared database. In this fashion, supervisory personal can connect directly to the network based data folder so that they can review records entered by all officers.
Using the software on a laptop or MDT
KANINE software is most often installed on in car laptops or MDTs. In a case where the user has occasional network connectivity through an air card or other means, the user can work locally (typical setup) and then export records to the server based data folder on a daily or weekly basis. This allows the user to access and enter records locally and then send the records to the server so that supervisors can review records, print reports, etc. USB flash drives can also be used to transport the data to an office based, network connected computer for data transfer as well.
Court reporting requirements
KANINE software has been used in court, time after time, by State and Local police and Sheriff agencies throughout the US. And, time after time, we receive praises from officers and County attorneys alike, stating that the reports generated by the K-9 system performed well in court.

Additional software required
KANINE does not actually require any other software to run, allow data entry and create and print reports. However, for certain functionality, you may need to install the following applications, most of which are not version specific. Pdf Reader- If you plan to attach .pdf files to your KANINE records, you will likely need to install a Pdf Reader, such as Adobe Acrobat Reader. If not installed, you may be able to attach .pdf files, but not be able to read them within the KANINE software. Microsoft Word- Microsoft Word is not required to install or run the KANINE software. However, KANINE does allow the user to attach Word files in both .doc and .docx format. To open any attached Word files from within the KANINE software, you must have an application installed that can open and read Word documents. Google Earth- Google Earth is not required to run the KANINE software. However, if the GPS TrackPack is used with the KANINE software, KANINE does allow the option to download the map file to Google Earth map format. To open these types of files, the user must have Google Earth installed. Java Runtime- The Java runtime is not required to run the KANINE software unless you are using the KANINE software to download GPS maps from, or are otherwise interacting with the GPS TrackPack device.
User Permissions
KANINE software accesses a number of files in the main data folder, named CBD Data. This data folder is, by default placed directly on the C Drive. For KANINE to run correctly, it must access all files in this folder. It is very important to make sure that all KANINE user’s have full read/ write access to the CBD Data folder the local machine, as well as any server based CBD Data folders. This is typically only an issue for larger agencies that have restrictive user account permissions.
