Question
How is a Hach WIMS Client installed on a client computer?
Summary
Installing a Hach WIMS Client
Answer
To install a Hach WIMS Client the following are required: When the DVD has been downloaded on to the computer where Hach WIMS will be installed, mount the ISO and right click on the PlatformInstaller.exe file.
Select Run As Administrator.
Check the License agreement box and click Next


Copy the serial number and click the Paste button so that the whole number is filled in at once.  Browse to the location of the license file select the file and then click Next.


 
Press OK when the MSI locations are found, and then Next, no settings on this page are required to be changed as this page just states where the MSIs are located not where WIMS will be installed.    


                                                                
Check only the Client Components, then click Next.



Choose where to install the Client, it is recommended to stay with the default location, but it can be changed.  Make sure the location ends with \HachWIMS so that a HachWIMS folder is created and everything that is installed is put into it.
Input the SQL Server datasource – this can typically be found on other Client computers in the Hach_WIMS_Client.ini file found in the HachWIMS\Client folder.
