Requirements
The same MyCalls software is used on the SL1100 and SL1000 PBX and the same software will
always be installed regardless of which MyCalls product you are using. It is the license that
determines the features that are available in the application.
Telephone System
MyCalls requires SL system software version 2 or greater in order to run. The SL series PBX requires
a static IP address.
MyCalls PC Specification
The MyCalls server is the PC that is responsible for communicating with the PBX and holding the
MyCalls databases. MyCalls clients can be installed on users PC‟s so that they can use the features
of the MyCalls application. A dedicated PC is strongly recommended for the MyCalls Server.
Minimum Hardware Specification
Intel Dual Core 2.0 GHz / Intel i3 Processor
2GB RAM
Min 20GB of available Hard Disk Space *see note1
Operating systems:
Windows XP Pro min SP3 – 32 BIT only
Windows Server 2003 SP2 – 32 BIT only
Windows Vista Business, Ultimate and Enterprise 32 BIT only
Windows 7 Professional, Ultimate and Enterprise 32 and 64 BIT
Windows Server 2008 / R2 – 32 and 64 BIT
Windows 8 Professional and Enterprise 32 and 64 BIT
Windows Server 2012
MyCalls clients should be of the same minimum specification as the MyCalls server above.
*Note 1. MyCalls is installed automatically on the „C‟ drive the install will fail if a „C‟ drive isn‟t
available. Sites that have high call volumes should use a PC higher than the minimum hardware
specification.
Thin Client and Virtualised Environments:
MyCalls is supported in some thin client environments, when installed in this way the MyCalls server
must be installed on a dedicated PC and then a MyCalls client should be installed for deployment on
the thin client server. Supported thin client environments are Terminal Services running on a
Windows Server 2008 and Citrix. Call playback is not supported in a thin client environment.
MyCalls is also supported on Hyper V running on a Windows 2008 server.
The PC Specification for running MyCalls Call Recorder and MyCalls Enterprise model is different,
refer to the separate MyCalls Call Recorder installation manual or the Enterprise section of this
manual for details.
Network Requirements
MyCalls uses TCPIP to communicate to the PBX and MyCalls client installations use DNS to
communicate to the MyCalls server. Both of these services need to be available before installing
MyCalls.

Before you Begin
Before you install MyCalls you should decide which PC will be the MyCalls server. The MyCalls
server is the PC that is responsible for collecting the SMDR from the SL and storing it in the MyCalls
database.
There are 3 core products that are available, depending on which product you are installing, it may be
necessary to install a license to use them.
Product
Description
Licensing
SL MyCalls 1 Year Version
This is the entry level version
of MyCalls that runs for 1 year
No license is required to run
this product. The product will
run for 1 year from date of
installation.
SL MyCalls
This is the entry level version
of MyCalls that does not
expire.
The EU300010 license is
required for this product.
SL MyCalls Call Manager
This is the fully featured
version of MyCalls that does
not expire
The EU300011 license is
required for this product.
If you are installing a licensed product, for example SL MyCalls or SL MyCalls Call Manager, then the
license should be downloaded from the License Management Server (LMS) and installed into the
SL1100 before installing MyCalls. Licenses are installed the same way that that system licenses are,
further information is available in the SL Licensing Manual.
If the license is installed after MyCalls has been installed then it can be read into MyCalls Manually
using the License Manager Application. If you are installing the SL MyCalls 1 Year Version then you
do not need to install a license on the SL PBX, is will run from a year on the installation date.
5|Page
SL1100 / 1000 Programming
MyCalls requires a TCP connection to the SMDR port on the SL1100 / 1000 in order to work. SMDR is used
to provide historic call information after calls have finished. The output is collected from the Ethernet port on
the CPU or from an IPL port if one is installed. MyCalls will configure the SMDR output on the SL1100 /
1000 automatically after the MyCalls software has been installed. A summary of the programming
commands that MyCalls enables is available later in this manual.
Installing the MyCalls Server
When the MyCalls software is unzipped, the installation will automatically begin, if you ever wish to
restart the installation wizard, double click the setup.exe icon from the c:\SLMyCalls folder.
Note: If you are installing in Windows Vista or Windows 7 and have 'User Account Control' enabled you
will need to click allow when asked if you want to allow the setup.exe to run.
The installation will begin, choose an installation language and click OK.

Configuring MyCalls for the First Time
After the installation has completed, a wizard starts that takes you through the steps to make MyCalls
operational. The steps are summarised as below:
1. Check for a license. If a license has been installed on the SL series PBX then MyCalls will
detect the license and install it as required. If a license is not detected then the 1 year version
of MyCalls will be enabled. A license can be manually installed at a later point if an upgrade is
required or the license wasn't available when MyCalls was first installed. When the license
check is performed, if the free license is enabled in the SL then the application will hang, the
Windows task manager should be used to abort the process. If this happens you will need to
manually restart the procedure for configuring MyCalls. By following the Licensing and
Manually Starting the Config Import instructions.
2. Validate the SMDR configuration. MyCalls will check that the SL SMDR is configured as it
expects, if it's not then MyCalls will prompt to ask if the configuration should be changed
3. Do the config import. The config import is the process that extracts key information from the
PBX such as extensions, DDI's and trunks. This information is then sent into MyCalls.
These steps can be carried out manually if the process is cancelled or aborted at any stage.
After the MyCalls installation has completed, enter the IP address of the SL and click Check License.
Make sure the free license is disabled on the SL before continuing.
After clicking Check License, MyCalls will detect if a license has been installed on the SL.
If a license isn't detected then you will see the following message. If you are installing the version of
MyCalls that will run for 1 year, then click 'Yes' to continue. If you are installing another version of
MyCalls and haven't installed the license into the SL, then you can install then license and click 'No.' If
you click no, the license check will be performed again.
10 | P a g e
11 | P a g e
If a license has been detected then you will see the window saying that the license manager has to be
started, click OK and the license manager application will be opened.
You will be able to confirm the IP Address of the PBX, click Read License.
Click Yes to continue.
The license manager will start reading the license form the SL.
12 | P a g e
Once the license information has been retrieved from the PBX, click yes to install the license
A message will be displayed saying that the license needs to be registered. The license read from the
PBX will run for 15 days, during this period the license will have to be registered. Details of how to
register the license can be found in the Licensing Registration section or follow the on screen
instructions. If the license is not registered within the 15 days then MyCalls will stop working.
Close the license manager to continue, the Configuration Import Tool will start.
When prompted, verify that the correct IP Address is entered for the SL and click download. MyCalls
will verify that the SL is configured correctly and download key information from the SL ready send into
MyCalls.
13 | P a g e
Click yes to start the process.
If MyCalls detects that the SMDR is not configured as it expects then it will prompt and ask if it should
carry out the changes requires. Click Yes to continue, a list of the items that MyCalls will set it
available later in the manual.
Once the SMDR has been validated the configuration will be downloaded from the SL. This will
include DDI‟s, Extensions and Trunks, this information will be sent into MyCalls. Click OK at the
confirmation dialog.
14 | P a g e
The information retrieved will be displayed in the config import tool. The populated information should
be reviewed and anything that shouldn‟t be imported can be de-selected.
To send the data displayed in the configuration import tool into MyCalls, Click the
Configuration' button. When prompted, click Yes.
'Save
If for example, no abb dials were configured in the SL then you will see the below message saying that
no callers have been configured, click Yes to continue. It‟s possible other devices may not have been
retrieved from the SL, click yes each time when prompted.
When the config has been successfully imported, click OK.
15 | P a g e

Opening MyCalls for the First Time
To open the MyCalls application for the first time, double click the MyCalls icon on the desktop of the
PC. If you are using MyCalls, the application will open without asking for a username and password.
If you have MyCalls Call Manager, you will be prompted for a username and password. By default,
there are no usernames and passwords enabled, click OK to login.
For information on using the MyCalls application refer to the MyCalls End User Guide.
17 | P a g e
Licensing
The 1 year version of MyCalls does not require a license to be installed, it will run for 1 year from when
MyCalls was installed. Any of the other MyCalls products need to be licensed in order to work.
Licenses should be downloaded from the LMS and installed on SL1100 / 1000. Before MyCalls can
read the license, the free license must be disabled on the PBX.
After MyCalls has been installed for the first, it will perform a license check. If a license has been
installed in the SL it will be read in by the license manager and become active. If a license is detected
then it run for 15 days, during that 15 days the license has to be registered. The registration
procedure is covered in the next section of this manual. The licensing procedure can be carried out
manually should you wish to carry out the licensing procedure after the initial installation of MyCalls.
When MyCalls reads the license from the SL1100 / 1000 it verifies that the license in the SL1100 /
1000 is valid. If MyCalls discovers that any licensing rules have been incorrectly purchased or the
license agreement breached then it may choose not to include them in the license or invalidate the
license.
With MyCalls 2.5 or greater a version based licensing scheme has been implemented. This means
that when you purchase MyCalls, you are entitled to use only the version that was released at the time
you purchased the license. If you wish to upgrade MyCalls to another version, then you have to
purchase a MyCalls license that will allow you to upgrade to a different version.
When the MyCalls license is registered it is bound to the CPU and MyCalls checks on startup that it is
connected to the correct CPU. If a CPU is replaced then MyCalls will not start until the MyCalls
licenses exist on the new CPU. When the licenses exist on the new CPU, the license should be reread and re-registered using the license manager.
18 | P a g e
Manually Starting the Licensing Procedure
The licensing procedure can be carried out manually if it wasn't performed during the initial
installation. The procedure is made up of 2 key stages, reading the license from SL1100 / 1000 and
registering the license.
Note: If you are installing MyCalls basic then you should NOT read the license from the SL, it will
use the built in license and run for 1 year from when it was installed. If you are setting MyCalls up
for the first time, then you should Manually Start the Configuration Import Tool.
Reading the license from the SL1100 / 1000
To manually start the licensing procedure, from the Start / Programs / NEC / SL MyCalls menu, start
the License Manager application. Select SL1100 / Read License from Switch.
Enter the IP Address of the PBX and click read license. The TCP Port can be changed if required, you
would only change the TCP Port if PRG command 10-47 had been changed.
You will be warned that the operation may take some time, click yes to continue.
19 | P a g e
After the licence has been read from the PBX, you will be asked if you want to install it, click yes and
the license will be installed on the PC.
The license will now work for a period of 15 days, during this 15 day period, the MyCalls software has
to be registered. If the MyCalls software is not registered during this period then it will expire.
20 | P a g e
Registration
After the license has been read from the SL1100, you should select 'Generate Registration Request
File' from the SL1100 / 1000 menu.
A Window will open containing the registration information and instructions, if the PC that MyCalls is
running on has internet access, then open the page in the text. If the PC does not have internet
access then save the text from within the window into a text file and take it to a PC that has Internet
Access.
21 | P a g e
Go to http://www.kelmar-software.com/svlicensing/default.aspx and enter the details into the website, the
user name / organisation should be details of the customer. The email address is the mail address that
the registered license should be sent to. You can also elect to receive MyCalls email notifications,
check the box to enable notifications. Now copy and paste the registration information into the
'Registration Request Information' box. Take care when copying the information into the box to make
sure that only the registration information. Do copy any other information or it may result in an invalid
license being issued. Finally click the 'Send Registration Details' button to submit the registration
request.
22 | P a g e
Once the registration has been submitted, it is automatically processed by a web server and a
registered license file is sent to the email address that was provided. The email will come from
[email protected] and will have a license file attached. Save the
license file onto the MyCalls server and open the license manager *see note1. From the file menu,
select open and open the .lrf that was in the email. Verify that the information is valid and correct then
click the Install button to install the license. The main difference between the license pulled from the
SL1100 / 1000 and the registered license is the expiry date. The license pulled from the switch will
have an expiry date of 15 days from when it is read from the SL1100 / 1000. The expiry date of the
registered license will increase by at least 1 year or to the date 01/01/2105.
*Note 1. If the file is downloaded using webmail, then there is a possibility is can become corrupted. If
when you attempt to open the lrf file in the license manager is says it can't open the file, then you
should re-register the license and download the attachment using another method other than webmail.
23 | P a g e
Adding Items to a MyCalls License
If extra licensable options are being added to a MyCalls installation, the license will have to first be
downloaded from the LMS and installed on the SL. It will then have to be re-read by the license manager
and re-registered.
MyCalls Call Recorder Licensing
MyCalls Call recorder licensing works in the same method as other MyCalls features. Call recording
requires MyCalls Call Manager to work. As part of the call recording package, a license containing call
recording for the relevant number trunks should be downloaded from the LMS and installed on the SL1100 /
1000.
If you are adding a call recorder to an existing installation then you should treat the installation as if you
were adding items to a MyCalls license and carry out the read license / registration procedure after installing
it.
Manually Start the Configuration Import Tool
The Config Import can be manually started at any time. The config import tool is used to validate / program
the SMDR on the SL1100 / 1000 and extract key information from the SL to import into MyCalls. To start the
configuration import tool, on the MyCalls Server, click Start > All Programs > NEC > SL MyCalls >
Configuration Import Tool.
When the config import tool opens, click the
icon to start the process.
After clicking the download button, enter the IP Address of the SL and click download.
24 | P a g e
Click yes to start the process.
If MyCalls detects that the SMDR is not configured as it expects then it will prompt and ask if it should
carry out the changes requires. Click Yes to continue, a list of the items that MyCalls will set it
available later in the manual.
Once the SMDR has been validated the configuration will be downloaded from the SL. This will
include DDI‟s, Extensions and Trunks, this information will be sent into MyCalls. Click OK at the
confirmation dialog.
The information retrieved will be displayed in the config import tool. The populated information should
be reviewed and anything that shouldn‟t be imported can be de-selected.
25 | P a g e
To send the data displayed in the configuration import tool into MyCalls, Click the
Configuration' button. When prompted, click Yes.
'Save
If for example, no abb dials were configured in the SL then you will see the below message saying that
no callers have been configured, click Yes to continue. Its possible other devices may not have been
retrieved from the SL, click yes each time when prompted.
When the config has been successfully imported, click OK.
26 | P a g e
The configuration import procedure has now completed.
27 | P a g e
Upgrading MyCalls 3.2 and Above
SL MyCalls uses a version based licensing scheme. If the site is running MyCalls 3.2 or above then
they will need to have sufficient MyCalls Upgrade licenses before they can upgrade the MyCalls
software.
Important: Before upgrading take note of which version is currently installed and which
version you wish to upgrade to. As a precaution, take a backup of the configuration and call
records database before upgrading!
If a site running MyCalls 3.2 wishes to upgrade to version 3.5. An appropriate version upgrade license
should be purchased allowing the upgrade to take place.
Upgrades are available in two main types, singles version upgrade and any version upgrade. A single
version upgrade will allow you to upgrade from version 3.2 to 3.5. A Multi version upgrade will allow you to
upgrade from version 3.2 to any other released version. All version release numbers for SL MyCalls after
3.5 will be staged in .5 increments. The initial release is 3.2 and to upgrade that version to 3.5 it will be
classed as a single version upgrade. A Single version upgrade will allow you to upgrade from 3.2 to 3.5 or
from 3.5 to 4 and so on. To upgrade from 3.2 to 4 or above, you will need to purchase an any version
upgrade license.
There are 4 different upgrade licenses that can be purchased and are summarised below:
Single Version Upgrades

Any Version Upgrades
28 | P a g e
Upgrade Licensing
Before the upgrade can take place, the licenses should be installed on the SL1100 / 1000, read in using the
MyCalls license manager and registered. To verify that the upgrade can take place, click the Help / Upgrade
requirements option in the MyCalls application.
If the requirement for upgrading is satisfied then in the Help / Upgrade requirements menu will return to
following message. The window will tell you if you can upgrade a single version or more than one version.
Should there be any items missing from the licenses then the following screen will be displayed showing
you what license items are installed so you can work out what is required in order for the upgrade to be
allowed.
If the upgrade requirements have not been met and MyCalls is un-installed, you will not be able to
install a new version, it will halt during the install. To apply the upgrade licenses, the original version of
MyCalls will have to be re-installed to allow the licenses to be installed.
29 | P a g e
Upgrading the MyCalls Software
When upgrading to MyCalls version 4.0 from a previous version, the MyCalls software has to be
upgraded on the MyCalls server and any clients. MyCalls 4.0 uses SQL Express 2008 R2 and
previous versions of MyCalls used SQL server 2005 express and will automatically continue to use
this after the upgrade. The installation can be optionally upgraded to use SQL Express 2008 R2 after
the MyCalls software has been upgraded.
Before you start the upgrade of the MyCalls software, take a backup of the Configuration and Call
Records databases on the MyCalls Server, this can be done using the System > Database backup in
the MyCalls application. Always upgrade the MyCalls server first and then any clients afterwards.
Once the backup has completed, in Control Panel > Programs and Features, remove the MyCalls
application.
You will be reminded that the upgrade license need to be applied before the upgrade can take place,
click yes to continue or no to cancel.
Once the old MyCalls software has been removed, install the new version of MyCalls and the upgrade
will complete. Once the MyCalls server PC has been upgraded then repeat this process for the client
installations.
The installation will have been upgraded to the new version and will still be using SQL Express 2005,
MyCalls 4.0 will work fine with SQL express so the upgrade to SQL Express 2008 R2 is optional. The
main advantage of upgrading to SQL Express 2008 R2 is the databases storage capacity is 10 GB
rather than 4GB allowing more data to be stored in MyCalls.
30 | P a g e
To upgrade to SQL Express 2008 R2 you will need to download the x86 version of SQL Server 2008
Express R2 with Advanced Services from
http://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=30438.
Select the file named SQLEXPRADV_x86_ENU.exe regardless of if you are on a 32 or 64 bit
operating system as the previous version of SQL express would have been a 32 bit version.
Before carrying out the upgrade to SQL Express, stop the all the MyCalls services on the MyCalls
server. Make sure that you have SQL Server 2008 Express R2 with Advanced Services software
downloaded and run the downloaded file to being the installation.
From the menu, select Upgrade from SQL Server 2000, SQL Server 2005 or SQL Server 2008.
Click I accept the license terms and click „Next.‟
31 | P a g e
Make sure the KSS instance is selected and click „Next.‟
32 | P a g e
Once the installation has completed click close and then start the MyCalls services. To see if MyCalls
is now running SQL Server 2008 R2 Express, click System > Database information in MyCalls, note
the Maximum database size will shows 10000MB.
If you have the windows firewaall enabled the must then manually create exceptions to the new SQL
server express 2008 R2 installation.
33 | P a g e
On a standard MyCalls installation, the Windows Firewall exceptions are created during the install, if
you have upgraded to SQL Express 2008 R2 an exception must manually be created to the following
executable.
64 bit operating system:
“C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL server\KSS\MSSQL10_50.KSS\MSSQL\Binn\sqlservr.exe”
32 bit operating system:
“C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\KSS\MSSQL10_50.KSS\MSSQL\Binn\sqlservr.exe”
If the firewall exception is not created then you may get a problem starting clients.
34 | P a g e
Installing a Client
A MyCalls client can be installed to allow an individual to use the MyCalls application of their PC. During the
installation you are prompted to enter the name of the MyCalls server PC. Once the installation has
completed then the client will be able to use any of the functions available in the MyCalls application.
There are two types of clients that can be installed, a network client or a standard client. A network client
works by installing a small amount of components on the client PC and then running the MyCalls application
from a network share off the MyCalls server. A standard client will install a lot more components onto the
client PC and the application will be run from the local PC.
Network Client
The main advantage with a network client is that you only need to install it once on a client. If the
MyCalls software running on the MyCalls server PC was upgraded then as the MyCalls client runs the
application from the server, the client could not need upgrading. During the installation of the MyCalls
Server, the MyCalls installation folder is shared. In a Windows Domain environment, users will need
the read and execute permission to the MyCalls share on the MyCalls server. To see if a client can
access a share, from Windows explorer, type \\servername\mycalls where servername is the name of
the MyCalls server. In the example below the server is called mycalls.
If an explorer window opens showing the contents of the share then the client can connect to the
server and share.
35 | P a g e
If an error is displayed saying there is a Logon failure then it is possible that the user trying to connect
to the share does not have the correct permissions.
To check permissions, on the MyCalls server, right click on the MyCalls folder in C:\Program
Files\NEC Infrontia and then Sharing and Security.
On the security tab, make sure the user or group that is accessing the share has the Read and
Execute permission to the share.
36 | P a g e
Start the MyCalls installation program and from the Setup Type menu, select network client and click
next.
When prompted, enter the name of the MyCalls server PC name and click next.
37 | P a g e
At the next prompt, click install to complete the installation.
The MyCalls application can now be launched using the Start Menu or a short cut is available on the
desktop.
Standard Client
Run the setup installation wizard and step through until you reach the Setup Type screen. Choose
Client and click next.
38 | P a g e
When prompted, enter the name of the MyCalls server PC name and click next.
At the next prompt, click install to complete the installation.
The MyCalls application can now be launched using the Start Menu or a short cut is available on the
desktop.
Patching
From time to time, patches may be release to enhance the performance of MyCalls. These patches
are made available from the following FTP site, ftp.neci.co.uk/mycalls/patches. The patches are made
available on a per PBX / per version of MyCalls. There is a set of instructions available online that
show you how to install the patches. Patches should be applied to the MyCalls server and any clients.
39 | P a g e
SL Programming Commands
When MyCalls is installed it will enable SMDR on the SL by setting data on the SL 1100 / 1000.
SMDR will be enabled for every trunk and extension on the system and the SMDR output is set to
LAN / TCP Port 4001. The SMDR output is also configured into the preferred format for MyCalls.
Each time the config import of run, it set these same command in the SL. If you wanted to disable
SMDR out for a particlur extension of trunk, this should be done after the configuration import has
taken place. Be aware if you set and commands manually and and re-run the configuration import
you will need to set the commands again as they may be changed by the configuration import tool.
The table below shows the commands set by MyCalls when the configuration import tool is run. All

Backup and Restore
MyCalls stores all of its configuration and calls in the MyCalls databases, these are two separate
databases. With a backup of these databases, MyCalls can be restored on to another PC. You can
only restore a database from the same version of MyCalls, so if you have a version 3.0 MyCalls, you
cant restore that into a MyCalls 4.0 installation. You can perform a backup of the database by
opening the MyCalls application and from the System Menu choosing Database backup. In the menu
is an option to backup the configuration and call records databases seperately.
The databases can also be backed up using the toolkit application that is usually:
C:\Program Files (x86)\NEC Infrontia\MyCalls\tookit.exe
From the database menu, you can select the database to backup.
42 | P a g e
Once you have a backup then it can be restored to another PC running MyCalls. Only 1 MyCalls
server can be connected to an SV8100, this is because there is only 1 connection to the SMDR output
allowed at once. With this in mind, before restoring a database on to a different PC, either disconnect
the existing MyCalls server from the network, stop the MyCalls services or uninstall MyCalls from the
PC that the backup was taken from. The restore process will overwrite the existing databases that are
on a PC so if there is data in the database it will be overwritten.
To restore the databases, install MyCalls and when it has installed, click cancel at the post installation
setup / license check window. Open the toolkit and from the databases menu, select Restore and
then choose either the Configuration or Call Records database based on the one you wish to restore.
Browse to the file that will be restored and click OK. Before the process actually begins, the toolkit will
stop each of the MyCalls in turn. After both databases have been restores you need to start the
services again, this can be done in Services > Start > All.
Once the restore has finished then the license will need to be re-read from the SV8100 and reregistered.
If the name of the MyCalls server has changed then there are two extra steps to carry out. The first
one is to run a script against the configuration database to make the report items available. The script
file is located on the MyCalls server in the c:\program files (x86)\necinfrontia\mycalls\scripts folder and
is called „changecpeserver.sql‟. Edit the script file in a text editor such as notepad or wordpad.
Replace the text „PCName‟ in the file with the name of the MyCalls server. If the MyCalls server was
called TANGO then the files would look like this:
update reportdistriblists set cpeserver = 'TANGO'
update reportitems set cpeserver = 'TANGO'
update reportschedules set cpeserver = 'TANGO'
43 | P a g e
Once the file is correct and saved, open the toolkit and from the Database menu choose Run SQL
Script > Configuration.
Browse to the file and and run the „changecpeserver.sql‟ file. To test and see if they script has been
run successfully open the MyCalls application and look in Reports. All of the previously available
report items should be listed.
The second thing to do if the MyCalls server name has changed is to point any client installations to
the new MyCalls server. To do this, open the toolkit on any client PC‟s that run MyCalls and from the
Client Menu select Configuration and Test.
Enter the name of the MyCalls server where it says CPE Server and before the \KSS text in the
Database Server text box.
