How to use a SoftRAID startup volume with High Sierra

If you're using High Sierra, and booting up from a SoftRAID volume, you'll need to follow the steps given in this forum post, since the macOS High Sierra Installer does not recognize SoftRAID volumes as valid startup volumes.

Hello There, Guest! Register
SoftRAID Easy Setup does not start
Every time I try to start the program it closes automatically.
I can't even see hard drives.
Obviously I can't mount my disks in raid 5.
Any solution??
Thank you.

You may be describing two separate issues. Easy Setup is just a front end to SoftRAID.

When you run the SoftRAID application, do you see the RAID 5 volume in the volumes tile?
