  • IMPORTANT: The APPX Desktop Client for Macs only runs on Intel based Macs with OS/X 10.5 Update 1, or higher. Older Intel based Macs might be able to use a third party Java runtime but this has not been tested. Power PC based Macs will not be able to run the APPX Desktop Client at all, since Apple does not provide Java SE 6 for this platform.
  • IMPORTANT: APPX Desktop Client version should match the APPX Server version. Failure to keep client and server version in sync can cause connectivity issues between client and server.
  • IMPORTANT: APPX 5.0.0, 5.0.1 and 5.0.2 Unix/Linux installers require the bash shell interpreter. The next patch release (5.0.3) will make use of Bourne shell.

  • IMPORTANT: As part of an ongoing process to separate the job functions of System Administrators and Designers, Appx System Administrators are no longer automatically granted Design Rights. After installing APPX 5.x, you may have to grant yourself design rights. If there is only one System Administrator (other than user 'appx'), you will be able to grant yourself design rights. If there is more than one Appx System Administrator, you must get one of those administrators to grant you design rights.
 

Overview

Installation of APPX 5 is accomplished by simply following the steps outlined below for your target platform. Because all platforms use a common Installation Wizard, the installation steps for the various platforms are very similar.

 APPX 5 includes many new features and bug fixes. As always, before upgrading your APPX production system, you are strongly encouraged to install APPX 5 into a test environment where you can verify the compatibility of your applications. APPX 5 has been thoroughly tested but, because of the complexity of computer software (including the APPX Utility), there will certainly be bugs. Consequently, there is no guarantee that your applications will be completely compatible with this significant new release. It is your responsibility to test your applications to ensure that they are compatible with this new release of APPX and to make any changes that may be necessary to maintain compatibility. Finally, before upgrading your production system, make a backup of your applications and your data. Your computer software and your data are important assets of your organization. Please be prudent and take the steps needed to protect this important investment.

  • The APPX ODBC Driver is not functioning reliably in the initial release of APPX 5.0. Customers who use that feature to gain access to APPX data from external products, such as Crystal Reports or Excel, are advised to delay upgrading until this issue is resolved.
  • On the HP PA Risc platform only, please be advised that the APPX Oracle database interface is not functioning reliably, and those customers using the Oracle interface on HP PA Risc servers should delay upgrading until this issue is resolved in APPX 5.0.1, which will require HPUX 11v1.
  • The new Source Code Control Feature is not yet fully operational and should not be used.
  • Special fonts in output processes are not being loaded properly for PDF output. If you have output processes that use special fonts such as a barcode font, these output processes will not print correctly. Update: It turns out that special fonts work fine on Linux and Unix.

Power PC based Macs will not be able to run the APPX Desktop Client at all, since Apple does not provide Java SE 6 for this platform.

APPX 5 includes many new features and bug fixes. As always, before upgrading your APPX production system, you are strongly encouraged to install APPX 5 into a test environment where you can verify the compatibility of your applications. APPX 5 has been thoroughly tested but, because of the complexity of computer software (including the APPX Utility), there will certainly be bugs. Consequently, there is no guarantee that your applications will be completely compatible with this significant new release. It is your responsibility to test your applications to ensure that they are compatible with this new release of APPX and to make any changes that may be necessary to maintain compatibility. Finally, before upgrading your production system, make a backup of your applications and your data. Your computer software and your data are important assets of your organization. Please be prudent and take the steps needed to protect this important investment.

 The System Administration files from earlier versions of APPX are not compatible with the System Administration files for APPX 5. Therefore, APPX 5 includes a conversion utility to convert the System Administration files from the APPX 4.2.a structure to the new APPX 5 structure. If you are upgrading from a previous version of APPX, you will first need to download, install, and run the System Administration upgrade application. The steps for completing this task are included in the upgrade instructions.

APPX Desktop Client Installation Instructions - Overview

The Appx Desktop Client (ADC) can be downloaded from the APPX web site under Downloads/Desktop Products. There are installers for Windows, Linux and Macintosh desktops. There are no license restrictions on downloading and installing the client software. You may install the software on as many desktops as you like. Your APPX server license will limit the number of simultaneous connections.

To upgrade an existing ADC installation, simply install the new version on top of the old version. It is not necessary to uninstall the old client software first.

In addition to the ADC, you will probably need a PDF viewer. For Windows and Linux desktops you can use the Adobe Acrobat reader or the free Foxit reader. Mac OS/X includes the Preview application, which is sufficient for view and printing PDF documents.

Installation of APPX 5 may also require that you install Open SSL on your APPX server.

Notes:

  1. After you install APPX, you will need to go to Design File Management in System Administration and run Create Files for each of your applications. This will create the new design files that are needed by APPX 5.

  2. The first time you enter into Application Design for an application, APPX will automatically synchronize the Widget file for the application. All "Raw Text" widgets in Output processes will be converted to be Label widgets.

  3. If you enable the APPX Login Manager Service to use SSL logins or if you enable the APPXIO file encryption option, you must have a current copy of Open SSL installed on your system. APPX will automatically find the necessary OpenSSL libraries if they are installed into the usual locations with the usual names. However, if APPX can't find the necessary libraries, you can set an environment variable to tell APPX where to find the SSL libraries.

Installation of APPX 5.0.0 may also require that you install Open SSL on your APPX server.

 

Notes:

  1. After you install APPX, you will need to go to Design File Management in System Administration and run Create Files for each of your applications.  This will create the new design files that are needed by APPX 5.0.0.
  2. The first time you enter into Application Design for an application, APPX will automatically synchronize the Widget file for the application.  All "Raw Text" widgets in Output processes will be converted to be Label widgets.

  1. If you enable the APPX Login Manager Service to use SSL logins or if you enable the APPXIO file encryption option, you must have a current copy of OpenSSL installed on your system.  APPX will automatically find the necessary OpenSSL libraries if they are installed into the usual locations with the usual names.  However, if APPX can't find the necessary libraries, you can set an environment variable to tell APPX where to find the SSL libraries.

Overview

The initial beta is for Linux only and should be used only to create new installations of APPX.  The System Administration files for APPX 5.0.0 are not compatible with the System Administration files from earlier versions of APPX.  The release version of APPX 5.0.0 will include a conversion utility to convert the System Administration files from APPX 4.2.a to APPX 5.0.0.  But, the conversion utility is not yet ready so, for now, you must create a new installation of APPX and setup the System Administration files for your test environment.
