Installing Process Manager

The installation procedure for Process Manager lets you select which components to install. If you are installing the software on a server, you can either install just the server components, or include Process Designer with the installation. If you are installing on a workstation, you can only install Process Designer.

Being able to install the server functionality separate from the Process Designer is advantageous since there might be different people using the tools. For example, the system administrator could be responsible for installing the software on the server and setting up the database connectivity, whereas an IT or business manager could be responsible for creating and implementing workflows within their environments.

If Process Designer won't be used frequently from the server machine itself, you might want to reserve the server for server-only functions by installing Process Designer on individual workstations. It's more common that people using Process Designer will install it and use it from their own workstations, rather than working in a server room, keeping the server physically at their desk, or using a remote control tool.

Note: To install Process Manager, you must have system administrator rights on the server, and rights to create a container on the database. If you plan to use Process Manager with both local and domain users, make sure you are logged on as the domain user when you perform the installation. To install the Process Designer component on a workstation, you must have administrator rights on that machine.
