The installation requires that Windows Installer 3.1 is installed. Every version of Windows supported by QPR has a required Windows Installer version installed out of the box. In the case you do not have the Windows Installer engine installed or you have an older version, please acquire a supported version from Windows Update. In addition, MDAC 2.7 or newer is required for the installation.
QPR Suite 2017.1 installation is divided into two separate packages, one for client components and one for server components.
The Clients package contains the following components:
•QPR ProcessDesigner (cannot be installed simultaneously with QPR EnterpriseArchitect)
•QPR EnterpriseArchitect (cannot be installed simultaneously with QPR ProcessDesigner)
•QPR User Management Client
•QPR Add-In for Microsoft Office (for 32-bit Microsoft Office only)
The Servers package contains the following components:
•QPR Foundation Server
•QPR BizArchitecture Server
•QPR Metrics Server
•QPR Web Application Server
•QPR Web Services Server
•Microsoft SQL Server Express LocalDB demo database (for standalone use)
The packages can basically be installed in any order, but in the case of full system installation with both clients and servers it is strongly recommended to install the Clients package first. If the Servers package is present in the same folder as the Clients package, the Clients package provides an option to launch the Servers package at the end of the installation.
If the packages are installed in a different order, then e.g. default server connections may have to be created manually.
NOTE! If you are installing both Clients and Servers packages, do not activate anything before both packages are installed to avoid unnecessary deductions to your allowed activation times count.
NOTE! For installing QPR Add-In for Microsoft Office for a 64-bit version of Microsoft Office 2010, 2013, or 2016, you need to use the QPRAfMO2017Setup_x64.exe installation package.
NOTE! It is highly recommended to apply latest Windows Updates and reboot your machine prior to installation so that installation of possible prerequisites does not fail due to a pending reboot.
