Install the API

To download and install the Celiveo Webservice API:

  1. In the Web Admin, add your Lexmark printer and select it.
  2. Go to the Settings menu and select DB Settings.
  3. Select your database and click Edit.
  4. Enter the address IP of the machine on which your Web Admin is installed.
  5. The URL and Key fields are automatically populated.
  6. Click the Download button.
  7. Open the downloaded zip file and run the CeliveoAPI.exe file.
