3.Complete the installation.

Technical Notes

There are two executables: ClearCanvas.Desktop.Executable.exe and ClearCanvas.Server.ShredHostService.exe. The former is the actual ClearCanvas Vetstation application that you run. The latter is a Windows Service that runs in the background and will send and receive DICOM images, respond to DICOM queries and delete image files when the used disk space exceeds a specified watermark. If you want to start or stop that service, you can do so from within ClearCanvas Vetstation under Tools > Services.
The log file in INSTALLDIR\logs contains relevant information when things go wrong. When reporting a bug, it's recommended that you include the log file in your report.  You can quickly get to the logs directory from within ClearCanvas Vetstation by selecting Help/Show Logs.
DICOM files are stored in INSTALLDIR\filestore with the following hierarchy: StudyInstanceUID\SOPInstanceUID.dcm. Note that there is no "series level" folder.
DICOM files that could not be processed are placed in INSTALLDIR\badfiles.
