QPR Server components (i.e. QPR Metrics Server, QPR BizArchitecture Server, QPR Foundation Server, QPR Web Application Server, and QPR Web Services Server) can be installed as service. In the case you are installing one of more QPR server components and you have selected service to be installed, the QPR Service installation will be performed after the files are installed. The QPR Service controls all QPR Suite 2012.2 server components (except for QPR Web Services Server which has its own subservice) installed on the computer.
In the case you selected service to be installed during the installation, you are only asked whether you want the service to be started during Windows start-up. If you need more configuration options regarding the service such as installing it with a different name or creating service dependencies, please install the service from the command line after the installation. See the instructions below for more information.
In addition, if QPR Web Services Server is installed and service installation is selected, a separate QPR WS Service 2012.2 service is installed. The WS service starts automatically when the main service is started.
Service Installation Using Command Line Parameters
Services can be installed and uninstalled with command line parameters as well. With the command line installation option you can install the service later on even if you have decided not to install it during the QPR 2012.2 installation. The installation/uninstallation is done by launching the QPR.Init.exe in the Utilities folder under the QPR 2012.2 installation folder followed by a parameter. The parameters are:
•-i for installing the service. For example, launching 'qpr.init.exe -i' in the Utilities folder starts service installation for the QPR Service 2012.2.
•-d for uninstalling the service. For example, launching 'qpr.init.exe -d' in the Utilities folder uninstalls the QPR Service 2012.2.
•-b4 for installing the WS service. For example, launching 'qpr.init.exe -b4' in the Utilities folder starts service installation for the QPR WS Service 2012.2.
•-u4 for uninstalling the WS service. For example, launching 'qpr.init.exe -u4' in the Utilities folder uninstalls the QPR WS Service 2012.2.
