Adding or upgrading a feature using Import Package

You can use Feature Manager to add a new feature or upgrade an existing feature by downloading a feature package file, either from the Ricoh website or from a feature DVD, and then using the Import Package action.
You must save the feature package file to a location that can be accessed by using the primary computer.

If you download the feature package file from the Ricoh website, save it to a location that is accessible from Ricoh ProcessDirector. This location can be on the primary computer, a workstation, or a network drive. Remember where you save the file so that you can browse to it from Ricoh ProcessDirector. Additionally, you must extract the file in that location so the EPK file within the downloaded file can be seen.

If you receive the feature package file from a DVD, you need to locate the file on the DVD, copy it from the DVD onto the primary computer, and remember where you put it so you can browse to it.
