2. Installation

The Promptar Server software installation process is very simple and does nothing but putting files into its respective directories in the host server. It is based on each operating system’s native software management tools.

2.1. Linux

To install Promptar Server run:

# yum localinstall --nogpgcheck prptServer-<version>.rpm

2.2. Windows

To install, either double click on the Promptar Server <version>.msi file or execute the following, in a command line shell:

> msiexec /i "Promptar Server <version>.msi"
