Processing System Installation Utility
The EPS setup utility is use to install or update a EPS System. The following screen
descriptions should give some Idea of how the installation process is accomplished.
The first screen is used to establish what type of installation is to be done. All
installations need to have at least one Server Installed. If the system is to be
used standalone then nothing should be changed and the Continue command button should be
selected. If the server is going to be networked then either the NetBios or TCPIP
protocol should be selected. If this is not changed at installation time it can be
changed later via the WinDirs utility.
If a Client install is to be done then the networking of Exe's or Exe's & Cfg file
must be selected. This will usually be Exe's only. The Default EP node is used
to select where the Event Processor will be found for NetBios, For TCPIP the default TCPIP
address is specified.
If doing a client installation, the location for local files and the location of the
existing event processing server files (Exe's) must also be specified. This location
of the EPS Server files must be on a mapped drive.
Once the installation directory has been specified, the next set of options determines
what applications will be installed. The screen below is a typical setup option screen.
Note that this list of applications scrolls, as you scroll down other applications will be
displayed. Place a check mark next to any applications that are to be installed.
For a new installation, the CFG file installation should be Overwrite, otherwise Merge is
generally used (when upgrading between major EPS releases the Overwrite options might be
recommended by your system supplier).
Here, when you select the Continue Install command button, the files from the
installation Diskettes or CD will be expanded and placed into your EPS installation
directory with appropriate shortcut/menu information.
Before installation is complete you will be asked some information about your computer and
telephone information, this information can also be entered via the WinDirs
If you are doing a server installation the installation process will scan your
installation directory looking for an existing Event Processing Database. If it
finds one you will be given an option to upgrade it to the latest version. Unless
you are instructed to skip this option, this option should always be selected.
