Running the Server and Web Console installer wizard

The Server installer will install or update Servers and Web Console to 5.7.

Installing or updating Server and Web Console 5.7

You can install Corticon Servers and the Web Console on a machine that does or does not already have a previous version installed. If a previous version is installed, you must manage any port overloads that might result from running both versions.
Note: An installed version of Corticon Server 5.2 or earlier on the target machine must be uninstalled, then Corticon Server 5.7 installed. Consult with Progress Corticon Support or your Progress representative to consider your migration strategies for existing assets before you take action.

Installation procedure

If you have already installed either of the 5.7 Servers or the Web Console, the installer will allow you to install components not previously installed, as well as update all installed components to the latest Service Pack.
To create or update an installation of Corticon Servers (Java and .NET) and Web Console 5.7:
1. On the target machine, access the Corticon 5.7 installers you downloaded.
2. To open the Progress Corticon Server Setup Wizard:
*For Windows, double click on: PROGRESS_CORTICON_5.7_SERVER_WIN_64.exe
