Detailed Steps

Installing Wonderware InTouch HMI for a Managed Environment

 

Performing the InTouch HMI Managed Installation

 

Before you start installing InTouch HMI, you should have a clear idea whether you want to develop, deploy, and publish your own applications, or require only the InTouch run time, to run applications already created and deployed.

 

The following procedure will guide you through the installation, with information specific to the InTouch HMI.

 

To install the InTouch HMI

 

1. Insert the installation DVD into the computer’s DVD drive
 

2. Using Windows Explorer, manually start the installation by double-clicking setup.exe on the DVD
 

3. Follow the prompts to commence the installation and to install system prerequisites, as necessary

If the account you are using for Wonderware off-node communications already exists, uncheck the "Create Local Account" check box.

 

If the password policy for the account that you have entered allows or requires the password to be changed, you will receive a popup message.  You can simply click the "Yes" button, but realize that if the password is changed at some point after installation, you may need to run a utility from Start > All Programs > Wonderware Common called "Change Network Account Utility" to reset your password.

 

 

 

c. Install any prerequisites not yet met. The installation checks your system, lists the missing prerequisites, and installs them for you.



9.The installation proceeds to completion. You must restart your system when the installation is complete.
