Installing SOAPware DataManager
This lesson provides illustrated instructions for completing the installation of the SOAPware DataManager to your system.
Before You Begin
Before starting the SOAPware DataManager installer, log in to the Server using the Administrator account. If you do not have access to the Administrator account, please contact your Network Administrator.
Ensure that everyone is out of SOAPware when installing DataManager as the installation will restart the database to make necessary changes to the database.
If you are installing on Windows Vista or Windows 7, you will need to right click on the install file and choose "Run as Administrator."
Installing the SOAPware DataManager
Read the License Agreement
On the License Agreement screen, please read the license agreement. If you agree to the terms of the License Agreement, Select "I accept the terms in the license agreement" and Click Next.
If you do not agree to the terms of the License Agreement, Select "I do not accept the terms in the license agreement", and Click Next. The installer will exit, and the SOAPware DataManager will not be installed.
Enter PostgreSQL Data Path
You may be prompted to supply the SOAPware DataServer path. By default, this is C:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\8.3\data. On Windows Vista or 7, the default path is C:\Program Files (x86)\PostgreSQL\8.3\data. If you customized the location of the DataServer during the DataServer installation, insert this location to continue and then click OK.
Open My Computer and browse to C:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\8.3 (or the install folder for your database server) and create a folder named soapwaretemp.
For example, if your server is installed in C:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\8.3 (the default location) then you will want to create the directory in the following location: C:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\8.3\soapwaretemp
For 64-bit systems, the PostgreSQL folder will be in C:\Program Files (x86)\ instead.
The steps to create this folder will differ slightly based on your version of Windows.
