General Installation Steps

For UNIX class machines, the installation process follows a straightforward series of steps:

  1. Download the tar files to a temporary staging area.
  2. Expand the tar files in the temporary staging area.
  3. Run a script from the temporary staging area to put the files into the production install area.
  4. License the production programs.
  5. Run programs from the installed production area in order to validate that the product installed correctly.
The installation process is different for Windows machines. See Windows Installation Overview for details.
