Download the Data Connector

Start the data connector service
The following steps should be completed as an administrator.
- After downloading, create a folder in program files called DemandCaster: i.e. C:\Program Files(x86)\DemandCaster\.
- Extract the Data Connector files in the folder you created.
- Find install.bat and double click to run. This will start the data connector.
- Check to see if the data connector is running by going to windows, programs, administrative tools, services and look for "DataConnector Service."
- Once it is running, please let us know so we can check the connection on our end. We do so by going back to the data hub and reviewing the data connector status in Processing >> Connectors
