Install Media Server on Windows

Use the following procedure to install Media Server on Microsoft Windows operating systems, by using the IDOL Server installer.

The IDOL Server installer provides the major IDOL components. It also includes License Server, which Media Server requires to run.

  1. Double-click the appropriate installer package:



    VersionNumber is the product version.
    Platform is your software platform.

    The Setup dialog box opens.

  2. Click Next.

    The License Agreement dialog box opens.

  3. Read the license agreement. Select I accept the agreement, and then click Next.

    The Installation Directory dialog box opens.

  4. Specify the directory to install Media Server (and optionally other components such as License Server) in. By default, the system installs on C:\HewlettPackardEnterprise\IDOLServer-VersionNumber. Click to choose another location. Click Next.

    The Installation Mode dialog box opens.
