Follow the instructions below to install the QPR 8.1 Suite:

 

 

1. Choose Setup Language

 

Start the installation by selecting the language for the installation wizard from the drop-down list. Note that the software itself may have more languages available (see the packing slip or readme for more details) than what are offered for the installation wizard here.

 

 

2. Welcome Page

 

This is the starting point of the QPR 8.1 installation wizard. Click Next to continue.

 

 

3. License Agreement

 

Here you can see the End User Software License terms for the software that is about to be installed. You will need to accept these terms before continuing the installation. Select "I accept the terms in the license agreement" and click Next to continue in the case you accept the license terms. Otherwise you'll need to cancel the installation.

 

 

4. Choose Setup Type

 

Here you can choose between three installation options, QPR Suite (Typical Installation), QPR ProcessGuide and QPR ScoreCard Designers, and Custom. The QPR Suite option installs all components except for QPR Web Services Foundation and the QPR Add-in for Microsoft Office (both of which can be added as optional components in the next page). In the QPR ProcessGuide and QPR ScoreCard Designers option one or both of the Designer clients and also optionally QPR Add-in for Microsoft Office. With the Custon installation you can freely customize the selection of components.  For these instructions, select QPR Suite (Typical Installation) and click Next to continue.

 

 

5. Select Optional Components

 

In this page you can choose to include also QPR Web Services Foundation and QPR Add-in for Microsoft Office to the installation. Both of these additions require Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1, which will be installed in the case it is not present on the machine. QPR Add-in for Microsoft Office is available only if Microsoft Word 2007 or 2010 is detected on the computer. Choose whether to include these additions in the installation and click Next to continue.

 

NOTE! The .NET Framework will be downloaded during the installation, so do not include these options if you don't have the framework already installed and you don't have a network connection

 

NOTE! If you have both Microsoft Office 2007 and 2010 installed, QPR Add-in for Microsoft Office will installed for Microsoft Office 2010.

 

 

6. Choose Destination Folder

 

Define the folder which will be the installation root folder for the QPR 8.1 package. All the components will be installed under this folder. By default the folder is C:\Program Files\QPR 8.1. You can also choose whether to install the product for all users or only for yourself. However, in the case you are going to install the server components as a service, install the product for all users.

 

 

7. Choose Script Folder

 

*This step is skipped if you are using Microsoft Internet Information Services.

 

Here you need to define the location of your web server's CGI binary/script directory. This folder will contain the CGI binary and script as well as ISAPI DLL files required by QPR Portal. With Apache the default script folder is cgi-bin under the Apache installation folder, and it is recommended that you create a version-specific sub-folder such as qpr81 under it.

 

After defining the script folder, click Next.

 

 

8. Choose Web Content Folder

 

Here you need to define the location of your web server's web contents directory. If you have Microsoft Internet Information Services installed, the folder will be detected automatically and the web contents will be placed in a qpr81 sub-folder under that folder. With Apache the default script folder is htdocs under the Apache installation folder, and it is recommended that you create a version-specific sub-folder such as qpr81 under it.

 

After defining the folder, click Next.

 

 

9. Select Additional Tasks

 

In this dialog you can choose additional features that will be installed. The options available are:

 

Create desktop icons. Creates icons to QPR ProcessGuide Designer Client, QPR ScoreCard Designer, and QPR Portal (only in the case the Standalone installation option is selected as well) to your desktop. This option is selected by default on desktop versions of Windows.
Standalone installation. Selecting this option configures the software so that also servers are started when a client (QPR ProcessGuide or QPR ScoreCard) is launched. This option is selected by default on desktop versions of Windows. When this option is selected, the "Install QPR  8.1 as a service" option is not available and vice versa.
Install QPR 8.1 as a service. This option is mainly for server installations, and makes the server components to be run as a Windows Service. In the case you select this option, you can choose whether the server is started during Windows startup. This option is selected by default on server versions of Windows. See Service Installation for more information.
Copy all product documentation to the installation directory. In the case you are installing from a CD or from e.g. a network drive folder with all the QPR CD contents, you are asked whether you want to copy also the Documentation folder containing all the product documentation to your hard drive. On the other hand, if the installation is done from a plain QPR8Setup.exe, this option is not displayed.

 

 

10. Ready to Install

 

The installer is now ready to start copying the application files to the computer. If you need to change any settings, click Back and make the necessary changes.

 

Once you are satisfied with the settings, click Install to start the installation.

 

 

11. Configuration

 

Before the end of the installation, QPR Configuration Manager appears so that you can verify your settings. However, in the case you had the Standalone option selected, the QPR Configuration Manager is not displayed.

 

 

12. Complete

 

The installation is now complete. Check the "Activate the software now" checkbox if you wish to launch the QPR Product Activation Wizard after clicking Finish. Similarly, checking the "Show the readme file" checkbox opens the readme file after you click Finish. In addition, if a QPR 7.6 or a QPR 8.0 installation was found on the computer, there is also a "Launch the Migration Utility" option available on the last page. Selecting that will open QPR Configuration Manager into the System Migration section after clicking Finish. If you have multiple options selected, the corresponding operations are performed one at a time, i.e. the readme file is displayed after finishing the activation and the migration utility is not launched before the readme file is closed.
