For example, the first time you go into INPUTs, APPX will see that the audit history is missing and it will create it as it reads the input process records. Regardless of whether you run this, APPX will start keeping a detailed audit history of changes in applications from this point on. However, you should decide now whether to run this step now or not. If audit information already exists in the audit file when you run this step, it will duplicate the data

Install the Upgraded System Administration Files

Before you install the APPX Utility, you must first replace your old System Administration files with the new System Administration files that were created when you ran the upgrade utility to convert your System Administration files to the new APPX 5.0.0 structure. You can use a copy command similar to the example below to replace your old System Administration with the upgraded files. Be sure to edit the copy command to reference the directory where APPX is installed on your system if APPX is not installed in "C:\Appx"

Line: 154 to 155
 Then follow these steps:


Overview

Two different methods are provided to install APPX on Windows. There is a GUI installer and a Console Mode (character mode) installer. Most sites will use the GUI Installer, the character mode installer is intended for sites using Windows Core Server (Windows without a GUI). The same installer is used for both methods. The installer will automatically detect if it is being run as a command or from a GUI Desktop, although in some cases you may have to add "-c" to the command line to force the character installer. Regardless of which installation method is used, the result is the same. A typical APPX installation on a system where APPX has not been previously installed performs the following steps:

  1. Creates the destination directory and installs APPX into it.
  2. Sets the appropriate permissions
  3. Runs APPX to allow you to complete the configuration
    • Add APPX System Administrators to the APPX user file
    • Configure and start the APPX Login Manager service
    • Configure and start the APPX Audit Manager service
    • Install the license key

GUI Installation on Windows

Log in to your system as an administrative user.

Download and run the APPX GUI installer (appxsetup-windows.exe) from the APPX web site or the APPX ftp server.

After a few moments, the APPX Setup Wizard should display the Welcome screen. Click on the "Next" button to continue. If you are presented with a Security Warning dialog, click on the "Run" button to continue with the installation.


Welcome.PNG

Read and accept the license agreement.


AcceptLicense.PNG

Specify the Destination Directory into which APPX is to be installed. As a matter of convention, APPX is usually installed into C:\appx but may be installed into the drive and directory of your choice, but do not choose a directory with spaces in the name.


SelectDestinationDirectory.PNG

You will be warned if the destination directory already exists. Otherwise, the APPX Setup Wizard will create it.

The APPX Setup Wizard can optionally create a Start Menu. You must specify the appropriate options. If you don't know what to specify on this screen, simply accept the recommended options by clicking on the "Next" button to proceed with the installation.


SelectStartMenu.PNG


APPX will then be installed into the specified destination directory.


InstallingFiles.PNG

Finally, you may specify whether or not you want the APPX Setup Wizard to create a shortcut on your desktop and/or a quick launch icon on the taskbar. After specifying the appropriate options, click on the "Finish" button to end the APPX Setup Wizard.


CompletingSetup.PNG

Character Mode Installation

If you are running Windows Core Server, you can run the Appx installer in character mode by appending "-c" to the command line. After a few moments, the Appx Setup Wizard should display the Welcome message. Press Enter to continue the installation.

C:\Appx>setup.exe -c

You are now ready to install Release 5 on top of your existing installation. Before installing APPX you should:
  1. Stop the APPX Connection Manager service(s).
  2. Terminate (kill) any APPX sessions that are still active (there shouldn't be any if everyone has logged off)
  3. Terminate (kill) the APPX License Server session

Then follow these steps:

 

Overview

Two different methods are provided to install APPX on Windows. There is a GUI installer and a Console Mode (character mode) installer. Most sites will use the GUI Installer, the character mode installer is intended for sites using Windows Core Server (Windows without a GUI). The same installer is used for both methods. The installer will automatically detect if it is being run as a command or from a GUI Desktop, although in some cases you may have to add "-c" to the command line to force the character installer. Regardless of which installation method is used, the result is the same. A typical APPX installation on a system where APPX has not been previously installed performs the following steps:

  1. Creates the destination directory and installs APPX into it.
  2. Sets the appropriate permissions
  3. Runs APPX to allow you to complete the configuration
    • Add APPX System Administrators to the APPX user file
    • Configure and start the APPX Login Manager service
    • Configure and start the APPX Audit Manager service
    • Install the license key

GUI Installation on Windows

Log in to your system as an administrative user.

Download and run the APPX GUI installer (appxsetup-windows.exe) from the APPX web site or the APPX ftp server.

After a few moments, the APPX Setup Wizard should display the Welcome screen. Click on the "Next" button to continue. If you are presented with a Security Warning dialog, click on the "Run" button to continue with the installation.

The System Administration files for APPX 4.2.a are not compatible with APPX 5 and must be converted to the APPX 5 format. Follow the directions below to convert your System Administration files.
 

Install the Upgrade Application

Two different methods are provided to install the upgrade application on Windows. There is a GUI installer and a Console Mode (character mode) installer. Most sites will use the GUI Installer, the character mode installer is intended for sites using Windows Core Server (Windows without a GUI). The same installer is used for both methods. The installer will automatically detect if it is being run as a command or from a GUI Desktop, although in some cases you may have to add "-c" to the command line to force the character installer. Regardless of which installation method is used, the result is the same.

    • Run 'Load Initial Audit History' for each application. This is optional, as APPX will automatically build the history as you make changes to your application. For example, the first time you go into INPUTs, APPX will see that the audit history is missing and it will create it as it reads the input process records. Regardless of whether you run this, APPX will start keeping a detailed audit history of changes in applications from this point on. However, you should decide now whether to run this step now or not. If audit information already exists in the audit file when you run this step, it will duplicate the data.

Install the Upgraded System Administration Files

Before you install the APPX Utility, you must first replace your old System Administration files with the new System Administration files that were created when you ran the upgrade utility to convert your System Administration files to the new APPX 5.0.0 structure. You can use a copy command similar to the example below to replace your old System Administration with the upgraded files. Be sure to edit the copy command to reference the directory where APPX is installed on your system if APPX is not installed in "C:\Appx"

COPY C:\Appx\data\5SA\5SA\Data\ C:\Appx\data\0SA\Data*

You should also remove the System Administration structure files. You can use a delete command similar to the example below to remove your System Administration structure files. Be sure to edit the command to reference the directory where APPX is installed on your system if APPX is not installed in "C:\Appx".

DEL C:\Appx\data\0SA\Struct\*

You are now ready to install Release 5 on top of your existing installation. Follow these steps:

Two different methods are provided to install APPX on Windows. There is a GUI installer and a Console Mode (character mode) installer. Most sites will use the GUI Installer, the character mode installer is intended for sites using Windows Core Server (Windows without a GUI). The same installer is used for both methods. The installer will automatically detect if it is being run as a command or from a GUI Desktop, although in some cases you may have to add "-c" to the command line to force the character installer. Regardless of which installation method is used, the result is the same. A typical APPX installation on a system where APPX has not been previously installed performs the following steps:

  1. Creates the destination directory and installs APPX into it.

  3. Runs APPX to allow you to complete the configuration
    • Add APPX System Administrators to the APPX user file
    • Configure and start the APPX Login Manager service
    • Configure and start the APPX Audit Manager service
    • Install the license key

Final Tasks

  1. Upgrade Design Files
    • Remove the Structure files for each application
    • Run Create Files for each application
    • Run 'Sync Widget Elements' for each application. This is optional, as APPX will force you to do this the first time you go into an application after installing Release 5.0
    • Run 'Load Initial Audit History' for each application. This is optional, as APPX will automatically build the history as you make changes to your application. For example, the first time you go into INPUTs, APPX will see that the audit history is missing and it will create it as it reads the input process records.

If audit information already exists in the audit file when you run this step, it will duplicate the data.
  2. Create the new System Administration files ("System Administration/File Management/System Admin Files on pull down menu").
  3. Upgrade APPX Desktop Client for all users
  4. Configure new features as desired
