Open Text Connectivity Installation Guide
Open Text Setup Wizard
For Exceed, HostExplorer,
or Open Text NFS Client,
you cannot preserve user
profiles for products before
version 7.0.
Open Text Setup Wizard is the interface displayed by Microsoft Windows
Installer. Open Text Setup Wizard is based on three standard, top-level user
interfaces or modes: installation, administration, and advertisement. Each
defines a different installation path and user interface flow.
Open Text Setup Wizard does the following:
•
uses the Microsoft Windows Installer service to maintain the
applications and resources installed on the computer
•
determines the correct path to specific components
•
ensures that applications do not point to missing files
Microsoft Windows Installer
Open Text Connectivity products use Microsoft Windows Installer. The
Windows Installer service views all applications as three logical building
blocks: products, features, and components.
With Microsoft Windows Installer, be aware of the following:
For more information, see
“Program Maintenance for
Personal Installations” on
page 13.
4
•
Retaining Advertised Shortcuts—When multiple products install the
same shortcut, the shortcut is associated with the last product installed.
Uninstalling that product removes the shortcut. However, you can add
the shortcut again by selecting the Repair option in Program
Maintenance for one of the remaining products.
•
Files in Use During Migration—During migration, the Files In Use
dialog box may open. This may indicate that the setup process is using
certain files. Close the dialog box by clicking Ignore.
Chapter 1: Installing Open Text Connectivity Products
Multilingual User Interface (MUI) Support
Open Text Setup Wizard provides a language option that supports machines
running Windows XP and later operating systems with one or more
Language Interface Packs installed.
With Multilingual User Interface (MUI), be aware of the following:
•
Product Access Control Enabled Installations (UsrSetup)—UsrSetup
support for MUI is limited to shortcut tooltips and extensions. In
addition, UsrSetup does not support MUI unless it is installed from an
administrative image to which the MUI patch has already been applied.
•
Merging MUI Patch with an Administrative Image—Running setup /a
from an administrative image where MUI is the setup language results
in the MUI patch not being applied to the administrative image. To
create a MUI-specific administrative image, you must manually merge
the MUI patch.
To manually merge a MUI patch:
1
Launch setup.exe /a and select English as the default language.
2
Merge the MUI patch into the administrative image by running the
following command:
msiexec admin_image.msi /p mui.msp
3
Install from the administrative image. For more information, see
“Administrative Installation” on page 16.
Installation on Windows Vista or later
Windows Vista and later operating systems have User Account Control
security features that prevent unauthorized changes to your computer.
Depending on your user privileges, several dialogs may open that prompt
you to confirm the installation of Open Text Connectivity products. You
may require elevated user privileges to install software products. For more
information, see Windows Help.

Installation Directories
Exceed XDK and Exceed
3D files install to the same
directories as Exceed.
Open Text Setup Wizard installs program-specific and user-specific files to
the following directories:
Installation
Description
Location/Type
Destination folder
Program files install into the destination folder
(also known as the root home directory). It is
recommended that you use the default directory:
Location: a remote network drive
or a local hard drive.
Can be a read-only directory.
C:\Program Files\Hummingbird\
Connectivity\version\
However, you can specify a different directory.
User directory
User files install into the user directory. These
files are configuration files or related files that
your Open Text product can change.
There are several kinds of user
directories and user files. For more
information, see the next topic.
7
Open Text Connectivity Installation Guide
User Directories
Files are created in one of three directories: shared, per-user, or global. If the
product is installed for all users of the machine, you can choose whether
user files are individualized (per-user) or shared.
Some files are always placed in a shared location known as the global user
directory. This location is not the same as the shared user directory.
Directory
Default Location
Per-user
Windows 7/Vista/Server 2008/2008 R2:
C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\Hummingbird\
Connectivity\version\
Windows XP/Server 2003:
C:\Documents and Settings\UserName\
Application Data\Hummingbird\Connectivity\version\
Note: This location is hidden by default.
Shared user
Windows 7/Vista/Server 2008/2008 R2:
C:\ProgramData\Hummingbird\Connectivity\
version\Shared
Windows XP/Server 2003:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data
\Hummingbird\Connectivity\version\Shared
Global user
Windows 7/Vista/Server 2008/2008 R2:
C:\ProgramData\Hummingbird\Connectivity\version\
Global\
Windows XP/Server 2003:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data
\Hummingbird\Connectivity\version\Global\
Per-User If you choose to install your files to a shared location, many
application files are created in a directory that is specific to the user who is
logged in on the machine. An example of a user-specific file is HostEx.ini.
If you configure HostEx.ini with HostExplorer to Not Prompt On Window
Close for a particular user, other users of the machine are not affected.
8
Chapter 1: Installing Open Text Connectivity Products
Another example of a user-specific file is Exceed.xcfg. If you configure
Exceed.xcfg with Xconfig to use a certain display, other users of the
machine are not affected.
Note: Each user of the product on the machine receives a
personal user directory.
Shared User If you choose to install your files to a shared location, many
application files are created in a directory that can be accessed by all users of
a machine. Changing files in this directory affects all users of the computer.
Global User Similar to shared directories and files, the global user folder
is available to all users of the machine. Generally, the global user folder is
intended as writable by administrators and local services and readable by all
users. In certain cases, folder permissions might be changed to allow write
access for everyone. Shared files such as user profiles and mandatory
settings are accessible from the global folder on the local machine
(regardless of the current user).
Personal Installation
This section describes the basic installation procedure for one user
installing a product on one computer. For examples of how to implement
installation procedures for Exceed, Exceed PowerSuite, HostExplorer, and
Open Text NFS Client, see “Typical Installation Scenarios” on page 18.
Autorun launches the Open Text Master Setup application when you insert
the product disc into your drive. If Master Setup does not launch
automatically, run Msetup.exe from the root directory of the disc.

“Migrating User Settings”
on page 37.
The .Humfst file lets you save the migration settings and use them at
another time using the Files And Settings Transfer Wizard. In addition,
there are properties available in Sconfig that let you import a .Humfst file
even if an older product is not installed. This allows you to migrate settings
to other products. For example, you can export settings from a
HostExplorer installation into an Exceed installation during setup.
You can also use Files and Settings Transfer Wizard to create an Open Text
File Transfer Filter (.humfstt) file, which specifies files and registry settings
to export. When you import this file with a .humfst file, Files and Settings
Transfer Wizard imports the settings as defined in the .humfstt file.
15
Open Text Connectivity Installation Guide
For more information on Files And Settings Transfer Wizard options, see
Open Text Administrative Tools Help.
Note: This topic does not apply to Exceed XDK or Exceed
Connection Server.
Administrative Installation
The Administrative Installation lets you create a centralized server image of
the product. This is useful if you want many users to install the product on
multiple machines without the original disc. For examples of how to
implement this procedure for Exceed, Exceed PowerSuite, HostExplorer,
and Open Text NFS Client, see “Typical Installation Scenarios” on page 18.
To run Open Text Setup Wizard in Administrative mode:
1
Autorun launches the Open Text Master Setup application when you
insert the product disc into your drive. If Master Setup does not launch
automatically, run Msetup.exe from the root directory of the disc.
Alternatively, run the following command from the product directory
on the disc:
setup /a
2
In the Open Text Master Setup application window, click Install Product
and then click Administrative Installation.
You can also select additional Open Text Connectivity products, register
online, or view release notes from the Master Setup window.
3
In the Setup Language Selection dialog box, select a setup language and
click OK. This language applies to all installations from the copied image
or shared image.
Your Open Text Connectivity product prepares Open Text Setup Wizard,
which guides you through the program setup process. It checks the
operating system and the current Microsoft Windows Installer version.
16
Chapter 1: Installing Open Text Connectivity Products
If necessary, the Microsoft Windows Installer is updated. If the Microsoft
Windows Installer is not present on your operating system, Open Text Setup
Wizard installs the service.
Once Open Text Setup Wizard has finished, the Welcome To The Open Text
Setup Wizard page opens.
Note: Open Text NFS Server cannot be installed if the Open Text
NFS Server feature has already been installed by another product.
To create a server image of the product:
1
In the Open Text Setup Wizard, click Next on the Welcome page.
Note: To quit installation, click Cancel on any page of the Setup
Wizard dialog box. Your computer is not affected if you do this
before you click Install on the confirmation page. To review or
change settings on a previous page, click Back.
2
On the Network Location page, specify the folder where the image is
stored. You can accept the default folder for the product. Alternatively,
you can click Change to open a dialog box to browse to an alternate
network location.
3
On the Ready To Install Network Image page, confirm the settings and
click Install. A status page opens, indicating the progress of the image
creation.
4
Another page opens, indicating that installation is complete. Click
Finish to close the dialog box.

Open Text Connectivity Installation Guide
Typical Installation Scenarios
This section describes three types of installation scenarios: personal
installation, which includes installing on a terminal server and silent
installation; advertised installation; and installation using Microsoft
Systems Manager Server (SMS) or Microsoft System Center Configuration
Manager (SCCM), which you can use to simultaneously install packages of
software on multiple computers. The conditions and parameters affecting
implementation in your environment may vary from these examples.
Personal Installation Scenario
For more information, see
“Personal Installation” on
page 9.
Administrators (and non-Administrators granted elevated privileges by an
Administrator) are able to perform a personal installation of Open Text
Connectivity products.
Installing on a Terminal Server
You can perform personal installations on a Terminal Server. However, you
will have no control over who can access shortcuts, user files, or use the
product.
For more information about
product access control on
a Terminal Server, see
“Chapter 3: Installation on
a Terminal Server” on
page 41.
An alternative option is to enable product access control, in which case only
users granted permission to use the product will have access to shortcuts
and user files.
Note: Not all Open Text Connectivity products support product
access control on a Terminal Server.
Silent Installation
A silent installation runs in the background. This scenario describes a local
installation.
This scenario assumes:
18
•
you are logged in to the computer as the (local) administrator
•
the product disc is available locally or on the network
Chapter 1: Installing Open Text Connectivity Products
To run a silent installation:
Launch Open Text Setup Wizard from the command line using the
following syntax:
E:\setup /S /V/qn [/lnnnn]
where E:\ is the optical disc drive.
The following describes possible command line options:
Option
Description
/S
Specifies a silent installation.
Note: S is uppercase.
/V/qn
/V passes parameters to Msiexec.exe.
Note: There are no spaces between the /V and /qn
options and the V is uppercase. If a character string
contains a space, enclose the string in quotation marks.
For example: /V"parameter space"
/lnnnn
Overrides the default English language installation
where nnnn is the transform file name.
Note: For nnnn, type only the number but not the .mst
extension.
/RS|RE "command”
Run the “command” either at the startup (/RS) or at the
end (/RE) of setup.
For example, to launch a file in Notepad at startup:
/RS "notepad readme.txt"
Installation proceeds to completion.
19
Open Text Connectivity Installation Guide
Advertised Installation Scenario
Not all product features
can be advertised.
Advertisement (install on demand or deferred installation) means all
features of a product are available even if they are not installed on the
computer.
This scenario assumes:
•
you are logged in to the computer as the (local) administrator
•
the product disc is available locally or on the network
To advertise a product and all its features:
1
Launch Open Text Setup Wizard in advertisement mode by one of the
following methods:
•
On the command line, type E:\setup /jm, where E:\ is the optical
disc drive.
•
Run Msetup.exe from the product disc.
Note: For a deferred installation, the product disc must be in an
accessible drive.
2
An Open Text Connectivity product icon is installed on the computer
desktop and in the Windows program group (on the Star t menu) for
each feature.
Shortcuts and registry entries exist on the computer, but files are not
installed.
Note: Shortcuts for features requiring Administrative privileges will
not launch correctly if the user does not have the required
privileges to install the feature.
20
Chapter 1: Installing Open Text Connectivity Products
Microsoft Systems Management Server (SMS)
Administrators can use SMS or SCCM (Microsoft System Center
Configuration Manager) to manage network computers, distribute software
from a central location, and perform a variety of other system management
tasks. Administrators can also install a package of products simultaneously
on multiple computers.
Requirements:
You can get the latest
Service Pack for SMS, or
SCCM, from the Microsoft
Web site.
•
SMS version 2.0 with Service Pack 2 (or later)
•
SMS Client (installed on each client computer) supplied with SMS
Server
•
Microsoft Windows Installer on the client computer
Note: For Windows 7/Server 2008 R2, you must have Microsoft
System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM), which performs
the same functions as SMS.
A package contains source
files for the program and
various details for directing
the software distribution
process.
To distribute a product using SMS/SCCM, the Administrator must create a
package definition file according to SMS/SCCM instructions. For
convenience, Open Text provides default .sms files for all products.
These are the default scenarios in each package definition file:
•
Typical Installation
•
Typical Installation with Language
•
Silent Typical Installation
•
Silent Complete Installation
•
Uninstallation
21
Open Text Connectivity Installation Guide
For more information about
Msiexec command line
options, see page 27.
When a package is run through SMS/SCCM, it prompts you to select one of
these options (scenarios). Use the following command line parameters to
apply modifications or create new package definition files:
Command Line Parameter
Description
/i
Installs or configures a product.
/q
Sets user interface level (silent).
INSTALLLEVEL=150
Performs a complete install.
TRANSFORMS=nnnn.mst
Specifies the product language where nnnn is the
transform file name.
Refer to Microsoft documentation for command line parameters, switches,
and other information required for Microsoft Windows Installer and
SMS/SCCM.
Sconfig
Sconfig (Setup configuration) lets you customize the installation of any
Connectivity product on local and network machines. Sconfig is included
with the following products:

Open Text Connectivity Installation Guide
Open Text NFS Notes
Open Text NFS Server and Open Text NFS Gateway support clustering.
When you install these products, you have the option to install in a cluster
environment and install Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-ins.
Installing in a Cluster Environment
For more information about
cluster environments, see
the Open Text NFS Server
User’s Guide or the Open
Text NFS Gateway User’s
Guide.
Open Text NFS products support Windows Clustering Technology. If you
want to run an Open Text NFS product in a cluster environment, the cluster
service must be running when you install the product.
If the service is not running when you install the product, Open Text Setup
Wizard lets you select one of the following options:
•
continue the installation without installing the cluster components
•
abort the installation
If you do not install the cluster components, the Open Text NFS product
will not be cluster aware. If you abort the installation, you can restart the
cluster service before installing the product again.
Installing Open Text NFS Consoles
Open Text provides Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-ins for
Open Text NFS products. If you are an Administrator on your machine and
you have installed the NFS Administration feature, you can configure local
and remote Open Text NFS products through the console.
You can also install the NFS Administration feature by itself. In this case,
you can configure remote Open Text NFS products through the console
without installing the entire product on your local machine.
24
Chapter 1: Installing Open Text Connectivity Products
Troubleshooting
The following are common installation issues and questions along with
suggested solutions. For further assistance with troubleshooting issues,
contact Customer Support.
Multiple Instances of Open Text Setup Wizard
Another instance of Open Text Setup Wizard is running.
Solutions:
•
An information dialog box informs you that an instance of Open Text
Setup Wizard is already running. Confirm whether the new instance
can continue.
•
If a product is not currently being installed, you can ignore this error
message and run:
Setup /v"HCL_OVERRIDE_INSTANCE=1"
The message also appears if a non-privileged user tries to uninstall a
product installed for “All Users” of the computer. In this case, the setup
parameter does not work since only an Administrator of the computer
can uninstall the product.
•
This error message appears if Microsoft Windows Installer is unable to
remove a key created by Open Text Setup Wizard. This may be because
Open Text Setup Wizard encountered problems during a previous
installation and the key was not removed.
Delete the following key from the registry:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Hummingbird/Connectivity
/version/installer/UserIni/InstallActive=1
25
Open Text Connectivity Installation Guide
Unavailable Network Resource
The feature you are trying to install is on a network resource that is
unavailable.
Solutions:
•
Click OK in the warning dialog box and try again.
•
Enter an alternate path to the folder containing the installation package
“Open Text Product.msi”. Run the install again and select Repair.
•
Use Media Location Manager (part of the Administrator’s Toolkit
feature) to specify an additional location for the product installation
package. This lets Microsoft Windows Installer find the required
resource.
Patch - Sourcedir Not Found Error
This means the source files are unavailable. When installing a patch, you
need to have the source from which you installed.
Solution: The original product disc must be in the drive. If necessary, use
Media Location Manager (in Administrative Tools) to specify a location for
the source files.
Application Startup Issues Following Installation
After installation the software does not start. Services are not starting
and/or files are missing.
Solution: Ensure the Administrator account is used to perform the
installation. Installing Exceed requires elevated privileges (that is, a user
who is a member of the Administrator group).
Retaining Advertised Shortcuts
When multiple products install the same shortcut, only the last product is
registered with the shortcut. Uninstalling that product removes the
shortcut. However, it is easily recreated by selecting the Repair option in
Program Maintenance for one of the remaining products.
26
Chapter 1: Installing Open Text Connectivity Products
Files in Use During Migration
During a migration, the Files In Use dialog box may open. This may indicate
that the setup process is using certain files. If this is the case, click Ignore to
close the dialog box.
Product Access Control Enabled Installations (UsrSetup)
UsrSetup support for MUI is limited to shortcut tooltips and extensions. In
addition, UsrSetup does not support MUI unless it is installed from an
administrative image to which the MUI patch has already been applied.
Merging MUI Patch with an Administrative Image
Running setup /a from an administrative image where MUI is the setup
language results in the MUI patch not being applied to the administrative
image. To create a MUI-specific administrative image, you must manually
merge the MUI patch.
Installation Conflict
When trying to install the product, a message says I must uninstall the
product.
Solution: You have version 7.0 of the product installed. The upgrade process
requires the original version 7.0 source files to install a later version of the
product. If necessary, use Media Location Manager (in Administrative Tools)
to specify a location for the source files.
Other Command Line Options for Msiexec
For more detailed
information about Msiexec

Chapter 2: Per-User Installation
Controlling Per-User Settings
During the installation, default profiles and settings are installed in a
common location for all users. This location, including all files and folders,
acts as a template collectively known as the default user directory. When a
user first logs in after a product is installed, Humsettings.exe launches using
Microsoft’s Active Setup Control. Humsettings.exe copies the template to a
user-specific (per-user) location or personal user directory. The product
disc is not required.
Note: When installing a 32-bit product on an x64 operating
system, User Settings does not launch automatically when a user
logs on for the first time after the product has been installed.
Instead, each user receives their personal user directory when an
application is first launched.
The following are the default (root) directories:
Directory
Location (Root)
Personal
(Per-User)
AppDataFolder\Hummingbird\Connectivity\version\
Global
Template
C:\Program Files\Hummingbird\Connectivity\version\
Default User
Administrators can refresh default files, profiles, and settings in the default
user directory. Administrators control the global defaults contained in the
default user directory while users control the contents of their personal user
directory. Each application determines what personal data and what global
data exists, but it only reads user-specific settings from the personal user
directory or from the current user's Microsoft Windows Registry.
Note: Administrators and users should change files and folders
only below the root level.
33
Open Text Connectivity Installation Guide
Customizing Files and Folders
Any user who has write access can modify the default user directory.
Typically, only Administrators have write access. Both files and registry
entries can be added and removed. Such changes are reflected respectively
in the personal user directory and the current user's Microsoft Windows
Registry.
Administrators can add files or folders below the level of existing root
subfolders. These files or folders are automatically copied to the personal
user directory. New root level subfolders are handled by PerUser
Settings.ini located at the root of the default user directory. This file
determines whether or not an installation is required. User Settings are
automatically created when a user of the machine first launches an Open
Text application.
Administrators can change the location of the personal user directory where
the template files and folders are installed. Default locations are based on
registry values. An administrator can change these values (even remotely)
after the initial install.
For more information, see
“Customizing Product
Installations” on page 58.
For Exceed, Sconfig has the ability to modify the initial values through its
Directory dialog box.
Adding Registry Entries
Each root-level folder in the default user directory has an associated registry
file. These are stored in the Registry folder. The [Registry Files] section
in PerUser Settings.ini provides a method of associating a .humreg file
(which is .reg file format) with an internal folder name. This is only for
installing registry keys and values to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER registry
hive.
34
Chapter 2: Per-User Installation
Entries in [Registry Files] use the following syntax:
FolderName=Short_humreg|Long_humreg
where:
•
Long_humreg represents the path of the file (for example,
Registry\Accessories.humreg) relative to the default user directory
root.
•
Short_humreg is the proper MS DOS 8.3 path name. If the Long_humreg
file is described as a MS DOS 8.3 path, then Short_humreg and the
pipe (|) character can be omitted.
Multiple .humreg files can be specified for a single folder by separating the
paths with semi-colons.
Updating the Personal User Directory for All Users
When the default user directory is updated, any new personal user
directories automatically get the latest files. For users that already have a
personal user directory, Administrators can use one of the following
methods to update the user files: automatic or manual.
Automatic Update
To update the personal user directory for each user automatically (the next
time they use an Open Text application), update the [Last Modified]
section of PerUser Settings.ini.
Run the following command from the command prompt:
HumSettings.exe UPDATELASTMODIFIED=FolderName
Available folder names are
ExceedMP, ExceedCSMP,
HostExMP, ProfileMP,
FtpMP, CommonMP,
SecurityMP,
HumNeighborhoodMP,
DeploymentMP,
NFSMaestroMP, and
NFSClientMP.
where FolderName is the internal name for one of the top level, default user
directory. Specify multiple directory names by separating the names with
semi-colons.
35
Open Text Connectivity Installation Guide
HumSettings.exe is located in the Accessories folder in the product
installation directory. For example:
c:\Program Files\Hummingbird\Connectivity\version\Accessories
Note: The time stamp is stored in binary format. If you change the
time stamp values manually, you risk having the per-user
installation run multiple times.
Manual Update
To manually update the personal user folder for a specific user, at the
command prompt type:
HumSettings.exe REFRESH=ALL USER=”user_profile_path”
where:
•
REFRESH=ALL re-installs, repairs, or refreshes all installed product
folders.
•
USER=”user_profile_path” specifies the profile path for the personal
user directory.
For example:
HumSettings.exe REFRESH=ALL
USER="C:\Documents and Settings\user"
Warning! Do not include a backslash character (\) at the end of
the USER command. Otherwise, the command line may be
misinterpreted and lead to unexpected results.
Passing Arguments to Per-User Settings
When using HumSettings.exe to invoke the per-user installation process,
you can pass parameters that affect the current installation. However, in the
case of a per-user installation triggered by an application, there is not a
command line to pass arguments to the process.
36
Chapter 2: Per-User Installation
The [PerUser Installation Parameters] section of the PerUser
Settings.ini file accepts arbitrary Property names and values:
[PerUser Installation Parameters]
REINSTALLMODE = ud
"Property" = "Value"
Each key and value pair is treated as an argument to the current per-user
installation.
Note: There are limitations on parameter usage. For instance, the
INSTALL and USER parameters have no effect because the
installation is being triggered for only the current user.
Migrating User Settings
Controlling Migration in Per-User Installations
Migration of user settings takes place at any time after the initial
installation. This migration makes use of the Files And Settings Transfer
Wizard engine to automatically upgrade older user settings to the current
version.
The per-user installation uses the settings found in the [Migration Control
Options] section of the PerUser Migration.ini to control the migration
process.
A sample section is as follows:
[Migration Control Options]
Migration Method=Automatic
Migration First Time Only=2
HUMFST Path=C:\Program files\Hummingbird\Connectivity\version\
Default User\MigBackupEx.humfst
37
Open Text Connectivity Installation Guide
where:
•
The Migration Method value controls whether or not the migration
takes place. The value is either Automatic or No Migration.
•
The Migration First Time Only value determines what to do if the
per-user migration takes place a second time. This can have a value of 0,
1, or 2. If the value is set to:
•
0—The per-user installation ignores any existing migration cache
and attempts to migrate each time it is activated.
•
1—The per-user installation stops migration if any migration cache
exists.
•
2—The per-user installation, before stopping, further examines the
migration cache to determine if any new folders require migration.
For more information on
the Product Migration
page, see step 2 on
page 10.
Whenever a Connectivity product upgrades another Connectivity product,
a choice of whether or not to preserve previous settings is presented by
Open Text Setup Wizard on the Product Migration page.
At the end of the installation process, if settings were preserved, the .humfst
file generated during the process is put in the Default User template folder,
and the HUMFST Path is updated to reflect this value.
The HUMFST Path value represents the base .humfst file location. The
per-user installation combines the information found within this file for
older products with the .humfst generated for each individual user.
If the HUMFST Path value is empty, the per-user installation uses the
appropriate [Directory Mappings.x.yz] section, where .x.yz is the version
number of the older product. Each section is populated with old Home
directory values from previous versions.
Migrating from Older Versions
You cannot upgrade the product as administrator if a version from 7 to 11
of the product was installed for the current user only. However, you can use
the following procedure to migrate the product settings.
38
Chapter 2: Per-User Installation
To perform a manual migration:
1
Using the Files And Settings Transfer Wizard, export existing version 7–
11 product settings.
2
Uninstall the product.
3
Install the current version of the product (which forces an “All Users”
installation).
4
Use Files And Settings Transfer Wizard to import the settings.
Migrating User Settings Manually
As an alternative to the per-user installation migration, you can use the Files
And Settings Transfer Wizard command line to migrate user settings
(including from one machine to another). This requires a base .humfst file
and the current user .humfst file.
The base .humfst file represents a .humfst exported by the Files And
Settings Transfer Wizard at the time the older product was installed.
To migrate user settings:
1
Export the current user .humfst using the following command where
UserSettings is the name of the .humfst file you want to export:
Fstwizard.com ACTION=ExportUser USERHUMFST=UserSettings.humfst
2
Import the current user .humfst using the following command where
UserSettings is the name of the .humfst file you want to import:
Fstwizard.com HUMFST=Base.humfst ACTION=ImportUser
USERHUMFST=UserSettings.humfst
Note: The export and import commands can take place on
different machines.
39
Open Text Connectivity Installation Guide
Importing User Settings Manually
Administrators can use the Open Text file transfer (.humfst) and filter
(.humfstt) files to import user settings manually via the command line.
To import user settings:
On the command line, use the following command:
Setup.exe /v"IMPORT_HUMFST_PATH=c:\settings.humfst
IMPORT_HUMFSTT_PATH=c:\filter.humfstt"
where:
c:\settings is the path to and name of the .humfst transfer file, and
c:\filter is the path to and name of the .humfstt filter file you want to
import
Controlling Uninstallation
When a product is uninstalled, the personal user directory from the current
user profile is removed. To prevent the user directory from being removed,
you can set the PERUSERPRESERVEPROFILES property in Sconfig (or manually
with Exceed) on the command line of an uninstall operation.
For complete control, set the property PERUSERUNINSTALLTYPE (or manually
with Exceed) on the command line of an uninstall operation. It can be set to
a string representing the exact command line parameters passed to
HumSettings.exe.

Chapter 3: Installation on a Terminal Server
Product Access Control on a Terminal Server
Since version 10, a personal installation on a Terminal Server means that all
users of the machine can use the product. Providing the same level of access
control that existed in version 9 and earlier requires a two-stage process.
This process consists of creating an administrative image on the Terminal
Server, and installing the product onto the Terminal Server from the newlycreated copy.
You can run a terminal server installation on:
•
Windows Server 2003 (with Terminal Services enabled)
•
Windows Server 2008/2008 R2 (with Terminal Server Role)
The following procedure assumes:
•
you are logged onto the Terminal Server as the Administrator
•
the product disc is available locally or on the network
Stage 1: Creating an Administrative Image
You must apply the appropriate product-specific transform to your Open
Text product before the product can be installed on a machine with
Terminal Server capabilities.

Chapter 4: Custom Installation with Sconfig
Customizing Installations with Sconfig
Users in an enterprise environment have different software needs. Even in
the case of a single application used by many users, differences in user
requirements and granted privileges often necessitate tailored installations.
For example, some users may require product features such as HostExplorer
and FTP settings files to connect to frequently used hosts, while other users
may require specific font settings and features to be installed with their
products.
For more information on
Windows Installer, refer to
Chapter 1: Installing Open
Text Connectivity Products.
Sconfig works with Microsoft Windows Installer database files (.msi and
.mst) to let you create customized installations of Open Text Connectivity
products for users with different needs.
Sconfig lets you do the following:
•
Customize the directories in which the product is installed, and add
custom folders.
•
Tailor the list of applications or components to be installed. You can
alter the list to limit the functionality available to users, or to optimize
the use of disk space.
•
Simplify user input during installation by preselecting information,
such as the properties of the software being installed.
•
Manage registration keys and environment variables.
•
Provide a uniform user experience, and maintain a uniform system
configuration across the network.
Note: Sconfig is not installed if you select the Typical installation
type. When installing your Open Text product on the administrator
machine, you must choose the Custom or Complete installation.
How Does Sconfig Work?
Sconfig works with Microsoft Windows Installer database files (.msi and
.mst) to let you create customized installations of Open Text Connectivity
products for users with different needs. Knowing how these files function
together to configure an installation will help you understand the process of
creating a custom installation with Sconfig.
53
Open Text Connectivity Installation Guide
Microsoft Software Installation Files (.msi) Microsoft Windows
Installer uses Microsoft Software Installation files (.msi) to install the Open
Text product. An installation file is a database file that contains default
installation information specifying which product components are installed
and in which directories.
Microsoft Transform Files (.mst) When a user alters an installation in
Microsoft Windows Installer, the changes are not applied directly to the
installation files, but stored in a secondary file called a Microsoft Transform
file (.mst). Like the installation file (.msi), the Microsoft Transform file is a
relational database with information about product components and
installation directories, but the transform file contains only the
amendments a user wants to apply to the default settings contained in the
installation file. The result is a customized installation.
Sconfig and Windows Installer Database Files
Sconfig makes use of the relationship between installation (.msi) files and
transform (.mst) files. Instead of changing the product’s preconfigured
installation file, Sconfig saves all amendments in a transform file. You can
then package the transform file with an installation and distribute the
customized installation to a target user group. If changes are required in the
future, you can also use Sconfig to open and update previously generated
transform files.
When preparing for multiple custom installations, you need to create a
separate transform file for each group of users. You can then apply each
transform file to the installation file for the Open Text Connectivity
product.
54
Chapter 4: Custom Installation with Sconfig
Overview of Creating Transform Files
When you start Sconfig, the Sconfig Wizard opens with a welcome page.
The next two wizard pages let you specify the installation file (.msi) for the
Open Text product that you want to work with and the transform file (.mst)
you want to create or modify. The wizard then displays the Customize page.
The option tree located in the left pane of the window provides access to all
of the options and settings that you can use to customize the installation.
The availability of some options is dependent on the Open Text application
associated with the installation file you selected and whether you indicate
that you are creating a transform file for a Terminal Services (TSE) client.
The options are grouped into the following categories on the Customize
page:
Product Directories The Directories options let you customize product
directories for the installation. Expand this option group to access the
Custom Folders options to add custom folders to the installation.
Product Features The Features options let you specify which optional
product features you want to install.
Files
These options let you add external files to the product installation.
Product Properties The Proper ties options let you customize properties
to change the behavior of the installation package and set properties for
product features.
Registry These options let you preset the registry editor for any Windows
operating system registry. The advantage of editing the registry before the
installation is that it saves time, especially when installing for multiple target
machines.
Custom Shortcuts The Shor tcut options let you create custom shortcuts
on user machines for any product feature you add to the installation
database.
Event Monitoring Properties The Event Monitoring options let you
import properties and previously specified component event settings for
Event Monitoring Server.
Environment Variables These options let you configure and manage
PATH and other environment variables.
55
Open Text Connectivity Installation Guide
User Settings Transfer
settings.
These options let you install or migrate product
Profile Spaces These options let you import Profile Spaces created with
Profile Space Editor.
Directory Services Properties Available only for Open Text NFS and
Exceed installations, the Directory Services options let you specify property
settings for Directory Services as well as service-specific property settings
for LDAP, NFSD, NIS and NIS+.
Exceed Properties Available only in Exceed installations, the Exceed
Settings options let you modify or remove Exceed-specific properties.
Custom Font Directories and Servers Available for Exceed and Open
Text Exceed PowerSuite installations, the Custom Fonts options let you
install customized font directories and servers to the Exceed Xconfig utility.
For more information on Xconfig, see Exceed Help.
Custom Font Paths Available only for Exceed and Open Text Exceed
PowerSuite installations, the Font Path options let you change the order in
which font directories/servers are loaded by the X server.
NFS Properties Available only for Open Text NFS and Open Text Exceed
PowerSuite installations, the NFS Client Settings option lets you modify or
remove properties for Open Text NFS Client.
After you make the necessary modifications in each of the option categories,
the wizard lets you generate and save the transform file (.mst), which you
can then apply to an installation.
Opening the MSI and MST Files
Before you can customize the installation options and settings, you must
use the wizard to specify the installation file (.msi) you want to work with,
as well as the transform file (.mst) you want to create or modify. You can
also indicate if the transform file you want to create is intended for
installation on a terminal server.
56

Font Directories and Servers
This functionality is not
available in TSE mode.
When you execute custom installations for Exceed, Sconfig lets you control
the directories and servers added to the font database. The font database is
stored in the lfp.xdb file. Exceed XConfig uses this file when locating font
directories and servers. As a result of the customization users will see a new,
customized font directory or server listed in Xconfig.
Note: Plan your font directories and servers according to the
demands of each user.
Setting Up Custom Font Directories
This option is useful when accommodating Exceed users who require
custom font files in Xconfig. During a mass installation, you need to
provide font directories that are tailored to meet the demands of each user.
This means including in each directory only those font files (.fon) that are
useful to users.
84
Chapter 4: Custom Installation with Sconfig
Adding Font Directories Adding font directories with Sconfig creates
new font directories in the Exceed Xconfig font database. The font database
in Xconfig is stored in the lfp.xdb file in the User directory. Specific fonts in
the font database are stored in font directories and on font servers.
Note: Before using Sconfig to add the font directory to a custom
installation database, you must do the following in Exceed
Xconfig:
• Create a custom font directory.
• Add custom font files (.fon) to this directory.
For more information, refer to the Open Text Exceed User’s Guide.
Modifying Font Directories Modifying a custom font directory lets you
change the specifications for the selected font directory in the Xconfig font
database. You can change the font type from directory to server, change the
name of the font directory, and add a new font database file (.fdb) to this
directory.
Warning! When changing the name of a font directory, you must
add the font files (.fon) to that directory.

Saving the MST File
After you customize the installation options, the Sconfig wizard lets you
save the transform file (.mst).
90
Chapter 4: Custom Installation with Sconfig
To save the .mst file:
1
In Sconfig Wizard, click Next. The Ready To Commit page opens
confirming that you are about to save your configurations to a
transform file.
2
Click Next to create the transform file (.mst). This process is automatic
and does not display on screen. The Complete page opens, confirming
that you have created your transform file.
3
If you want to create a command (.cmd) or batch (.bat) file that will
start Setup with the new transform file, select the option at the bottom
of the wizard and use the browse button to specify the file name and
location.
If you do not select this option, you can follow the instructions
provided by the wizard for adding the transform file to the CmdLine
entry of the setup.ini file. For more information, see “Applying the
MST File to an Installation” on page 91.
4
Click Finish to exit Sconfig.
Sconfig saves the transform file (.mst) in the same folder as the installation
file (.msi). This makes it easier for users to find when they want to access
the file from the administrative installation point.
Applying the MST File to an Installation
After you have created a transform file (.mst), you can use it to customize
Open Text Connectivity product installations. If, on the last page of the
wizard, you did not opt to generate a command file that starts Setup with
the new transform file, you can apply the transform file to the installation
file manually. To do this, you must tell the setup.exe file where to find your
transform file.
91
Open Text Connectivity Installation Guide
To change the setup.exe:
For more information on
installing with an .mst
file, see Sconfig Help.
1
In Windows Explorer, browse to the folder that contains the setup.ini
file for your Open Text product.
2
Open the setup.ini file.
3
On the line beginning with CmdLine, add the following text:
TRANSFORMS=”full path to the .mst file”
For example, the CmdLine for Open Text YourProduct would look like
this:
CmdLine=TRANSFORMS=”c:\Open Text YourProduct.mst”
where YourProduct is the Open Text product you are customizing.
4
On the File menu, click Save.
5
On the File menu, click Close.
The new CmdLine in the setup.ini file tells the setup program to
incorporate the new transform file in the program installation. Running
setup.exe uses both the original installation file and the transform file that
you created using Sconfig.
Creating Multiple Custom Installations
Multiple custom installations are necessary for disparate users with
different development needs. Rather than having users sift through a large
product installation, use Sconfig to package custom installations for each
user.
To create another .mst file:
92
1
Open Sconfig and browse to a new transform file (.mst).
2
Create and save the transform file (.mst) to the administration
installation point.
Chapter 4: Custom Installation with Sconfig
3
If you want to create more transform files for custom installations,
repeat steps 1 and 2.
4
To use your new transform file (.mst), start the Setup Wizard using the
following command:
setup /v"TRANSFORMS=c:\YourTransform.mst"
This way, multiple transform files can exist in one source location, without
the need for repeated modifications to the setup.ini file.
Running Sconfig from a Command Line
You can use a command line prompt to generate transform files and to
apply them to an installation file (.msi).
Generating a Transform
Use the following command to generate a transform file:

you must enter the Exceed Connection Server administrator account
name. The administrator you designate can then add other accounts to
the administrative group.
Note: It is recommended that you do not use the root account as
the Exceed Connection Server administrator account.
Users running the installation under Superuser accounts are not
added to the Exceed Connection Server administrative group
automatically.
The installer generates an installation log file and displays its location.
You can refer to this file to ensure that the installation was successful.
11 For Linux and Solaris servers only: If you want to use OpenGL serverside rendering features, you must first configure the graphics device
permissions by running the ssrconfig script, located in your
/ExceedConnectionServer/bin/ directory.

the stand-alone version on any machine that runs X applications from
which your users need to print.
To copy Exceed Remote Print Utility from the product disc:
104
1
In the /ExceedConnectionServer/Utilities/elpr directory, open the
folder that matches the operating system of the machine on which you
want to install the Print Utility.
2
Copy the elpr file to a local directory. Ensure that the directory is
accessible to Exceed onDemand Client or Exceed Freedom users.
Chapter 5: Exceed Connection Server for UNIX Installation
Installing Exceed License Server
Exceed License Server is a UNIX utility that allows you to designate the
number of licenses available for each cluster. If your implementation of
Exceed Connection Server includes multiple cluster environments spread
out across various geographical locations, you may want to use Exceed
License Server to share licenses between different Exceed Connection Server
clusters.
To install and configure Exceed License Server:
1
Navigate to the
/ExceedConnectionServer/Utilities/ExceedLicenseServer directory
on your product disc.
2
Save the file that is specific to your platform to the desired location on
the UNIX machine.
3
Uncompress the .gz file, and then untar the resulting .tar file.
4
Create the internal database using the following command:
./elicensemgr initdb
5
When prompted, specify and confirm the administrative password for
Exceed License Server.
6
Start Exceed License Server using the following command:
./elicensemgr start
Note: Exceed License Server does not start automatically when
you restart the machine. To resolve this, add the startup command
to the boot script for the machine on which Exceed License Server
is installed. For example: /opt/ELS/elicensemgr start. You must
have root privileges to modify the boot script.
The method for modifying the boot script may differ depending on
your operating system. For more information, contact your UNIX
system administrator.

General Accessibility
Wherever possible, our software adheres to Microsoft Windows interface
standards and contains a comprehensive set of accessibility features.
Access Keys All menus have associated access keys (mnemonics) that let
you use the keyboard, rather than a mouse, to navigate the user interface
(UI). These access keys appear as underlined letters in the names of most UI
items. (If this is not the case, press Alt to reveal them.) To open a menu,
press Alt and then press the key that corresponds with the underlined letter
in the menu name. For example, to access the File menu in any of our
applications, press Alt+F.
Once you have opened a menu, you can access an item on the menu by
pressing the underlined letter in the menu item name, or you can use the
arrow keys to navigate the menu list.
Keyboard Shortcuts Some often-used menu options also have shortcut
(accelerator) keys. The shortcut key for an item appears beside it on the
menu.
Directional Arrows Use the directional arrows on the keyboard to
navigate through menu items or to scroll vertically and horizontally. You
can also use the directional arrows to navigate through multiple options.
For example, if you have a series of radio buttons, you can use the arrow
keys to navigate the possible selections.
Tab Key Sequence To navigate through a dialog box, press the Tab key.
Selected items appear with a dotted border. You can also press Shift+Tab to
go back to a previous selection within the dialog box.
