Install Reflection X Advantage on Windows

Reflection X Advantage is included as a component in Reflection X 2014 and Reflection Pro 2014.

The following applications are installed by default:

  • X Manager
    Provides complete support for connecting to X clients in standalone mode.
  • Reflection Workspace
    Provides access to VT terminal sessions. With Reflection Pro 2014, IBM terminal and printer support is also included.
  • Reflection FTP Client
    Supports file transfer using both FTP and SFTP protocols.

A 64-bit installer is available for installing Reflection X 2014 and Reflection Pro 2014 on 64-bit Windows platforms. This installer includes 64-bit Reflection X Advantage and 32-bit Reflection Workspace and Reflection FTP client. (The 32-bit applications are supported on 64-bit platforms.) Legacy Reflection X is not included with the 64-bit installer.

If you are planning on running Reflection X Advantage in domain mode, you will need to install additional features on the computers running in your domain. These features are not installed by default. For a summary of some typical installation configurations for domain mode, see Which Reflection X Advantage Features Should I Install?

To install on Windows

  1. Log on using a Windows account with administrator privileges.
  2. Start the Attachmate Setup program (Setup.exe). If you are installing from the download site, the following steps start this program:
    1. From the download site, click the Windows download link and run the download program.
    2. Select a location for the installer files, and then click Next. This extracts the files to the specified location and starts the Attachmate Setup program.
  3. The installer checks your system for required software prerequisites. If these are not present, the installer installs these packages before running the product installation.
  4. To view and/or modify which features are installed, click the Feature Selection tab.

Installation Log File

An installation log file is created by default, but this file is deleted if the installation succeeds. If your installation does not succeed, you can use the log file to troubleshoot. The log file is saved to your temp directory with a generated name that begins with atm. To open this folder, enter %tmp% in the Start menu's "Search programs and files" text box or in the path box of a Windows Explorer window.
