NOTE:  You can use the programs below to get into your respective branch of the military with your CAC to download ActivClient


Other - 1. If you only want to use your CAC to logon to CAC enabled sites (and not complete or digitally sign forms with Lotus Forms and ApproveIt), consider using Trusted End Node Security (TENS) formerly known as LPS (Lightweight Portable Security) 


Learn how to use TENS to download ActivClient with your CAC on your computer


Other - 2.  Download and use an Open-Source program like Smart Card Manager




You may purchase ActivClient 6.2 (Works with Windows 7, Vista, & XP, NOT Windows 8 or 8.1)


If you are unsure whether you have a 32 or 64 bit version of Windows, here is how to find out:


Windows 7, 8, 8.1, & Vista, Right click Computer, select Properties.  Under System, System type you will see 32 or 64-bit Operating System (see example below).
XP, Right click My Computer, select Properties.  If it doesn't say 64 bit, you have a 32 bit Operating System.
