Installing DATABridge on Windows

Use this procedure to install or upgrade the following DATABridge products:

  • DATABridge Client
  • DATABridge Client Console
  • DATABridge Enterprise Server

Before you install

The installer gives you the option to secure the DATABridge Client working directory. The Enable File Security option appears after the DATABridge Client is successfully installed (step 5 of this procedure). When this option is selected, you can assign access rights to user IDs and groups. File security for DATABridge Enterprise Server is automatically enabled during installation. For more information, see Security Guidelines.

If you use a non-English Oracle database, you could run into problems with replicated data that uses decimals. See Running the Oracle Client on a Non-English Database.

Important: The default location of the Enterprise Server working directory has changed in this release. If you're upgrading, browse to your current working directory to ensure that your data sources are upgraded.

To install DATABridge

  1. Log on using a Windows account with administrator privileges.
  2. To start the installer, do one of the following:
    • From the Windows64 or Windows32 folder, double-click Setup.exe.
    • From the download site, click the Windows download link, select a location for the installer files, and then click Next.
  3. In the Installer wizard, accept the license agreement and click Continue.
  4. In the tabbed window, make your selections and then click Install Now:

    File Location tab

    Specify a location for the DATABridge program files (or accept the default). This path is saved as the INSTALLDIR string value for the Windows registry key.

    Feature Selection tab

    Click the DATABridge component you want to install and choose Feature will be installed on local hard drive. (Items with a red "x" won't be installed.) Follow the same procedure to optionally install Japanese Support and Localization.

    Options tab

    Configure settings for DATABridge components that are selected on the Features Selection tab. If you're upgrading, click Browse and select the existing working directory. Otherwise, use the default or specify a new path.

    Important: Do not specify the Program Files directory as the working directory for the Client or Enterprise Server.

    The TCP/IP port is where the program listens for incoming connection requests. Use the default port number unless it's already in use by another program.

    Advanced tab

    Specify the type of installation you want and your log file options.

  5. (Client Installation) To restrict read/write access to the Client working directory, in the Client Configuration dialog box, select Enable File Security and then enter the user ID and groups that will have access to this directory. You can also enable Client File Security after installation by running setfilesecurity.exe as an Administrator.
  6. (Client Installation) If you plan to run the Client from the command line, specify whether to add the Client directory to the user path (recommended) or the system path. For a description of these options, see Updatepath dialog box.
  7. If you're upgrading the Client, run the Migrate program to complete the installation.

After installation is complete, see the Getting Started section of this guide.
