Getting Started

End-Users: You should have been provided a .iads file. This is a single file containing all of the IETM data for your system. To open this file, simply double-click or use the File > Open menu in IADS4. If you do not have access to this file, please contact your program office or our support team.

Authors: If you already have XML data and the required dataset and table of contents file, simply open the dataset file from the IADS4 File > Open menu.

For evaluation purposes, please see the sample dataset: helmet.iads


Are you having trouble completing the install? If the computer you are using was not imaged using the Army Golden Master (AGM), it may be unable to validate the certificate used to sign the installer. You may download and run the InstallRoot tool provided by DISA from: Tools & Configuration Files - DoD Cyber Exchange. InstallRoot requires administrator privileges to run.
