Determining the type of installation

Your OpenEdge installation process depends on what products, components, and subcomponents you choose to install and the type of installation you plan to perform. The following table summarizes the installation options.
Table 15. Installation options
Installation option
Automatically installs all mandatory, recommended, and optional components and subcomponents of the OpenEdge products you are installing.
Installs all mandatory product components and subcomponents, but allows you to selectively install the recommended and optional components and subcomponents on a product-by-product basis.
This installation is recommended for more advanced users and provides the flexibility to distribute OpenEdge components on different machines, select product components to suit their business needs, and work around issues such as disk space limitations.
Note: When customizing an install, Progress Software Corporation recommends that you consider removing only optional components and subcomponents. Removing recommended products might negatively affect a product's functionality.
