Audit System - Template Installation

The Caseware Audit System template is designed for use with Caseware Working Papers. We recommend a license administrator install the Caseware Audit template to your workstation.


  • Ensure that your workstation meets all the system requirements for Audit System.
  • You MUST install the template on your local workstation in the sub-directory of your Caseware installation, typically C:\Program Files (x86)\Caseware\. Network installation is not supported.
  • Do not install a full copy of the template over an existing template. To avoid overwriting preexisting customizations, we recommend you update the template.
