Installation Instructions

The XSecurePro 8.1/Release:20070119 Installation

Date: 12 February 2007

The software product comes normally as a self-extracting archive file that contains the package installation files.

The installation procedure consists of two steps:

  1. Extracting the package installation files into a temporary distributive directory
  2. Running Setup from the distributive directory.

You can run Setup manually in the default mode or use the "silent" installation mode of Setup to simplify multiple secondary installations.

Extracting package installation files

This section describes how to extract the package installation files from the self-extracting file (compressed and created by WinZip).

To extract the package installation files, you should do the following:

  1. Download xseplabp.exe (self extracting file) to your hard disk
  2. Execute xseplabp.exe and select OK.
  3. XSecurePro Installation - step1

  4. In the dialog box that appears, you can enter a name for a temporary distributive directory in the Unzip to folder edit field or use the Browse button to select it. By default, the installation files will be extracted to the distributive directory shown in the field c:\xseplabp.src.

    Later (after successful installation), you can remove the temporary distributive directory or use it to start Setup for multiple secondary installations.

  5. Choose Unzip to start extracting the files and then installing the package automatically. The archive file will be uncompressed and the installation files will be placed in the specified distributive directory.

  6. After extracting the package installation files, choose OK in the following box:
  7. XSecurePro Installation - step3

The installation procedure (i.e. running Setup) will start automatically from the temporary distributive directory if you enable the When done unzipping open: .\setup.exe check box.

Running Setup

As soon as you start the installation process, you will see a number of dialog boxes with instructions for each installation step. These boxes have three buttons. The Cancel button quits the installation process. The Back button returns you to the previous step. When you press the Next button, the Setup program proceeds to the next installation step.

For the first installation of the package, the procedure steps are as follows (with the dialog's names):

1. Welcome
At this step, it is strongly recommended that you exit all MS Windows programs before running Setup.

XSecurePro Installation - step4

2. Software License Agreement
At this step, you must choose whether you accept all the terms of the Software License Agreement shown within the window or not before running Setup.

XSecurePro Installation - step5

3. User Information
In this box, you should enter the Person name, the Company name, and the product serial number (for registration purposes).

XSecurePro Installation - step6

4. Choose Destination Location
In this box, you should specify the folder where the package will be installed in (i.e. the home directory for the package). You can use the default folder name, enter your destination folder name, or select another folder using the Browse button.

To install to the specified folder, click Next. If the folder does not exist, Setup will create it. If Setup detects the package in the directory you specified, then it will prompt you to upgrade the package. (See section Upgrading XSecurePro below.)

XSecurePro Installation - step7

5. Setup Type
At this step, you can choose components of the package you want Setup to install.

XSecurePro Installation - step8

There are three Setup types: Typical, Compact, and Custom.

For the Typical type, Setup installs all the components of the package (the most common options).

For the Compact type, Setup installs the package without On-Line Help Files (the minimum required options).

For the Custom type, the Select Components dialog box appears on your display. Choose components that you wish to install (clicking on the checkmark positions).

At the bottom of the window, you can see how much Space Required will be used to install the components you choose and Space Available on your disk.

XSecurePro Installation - step9

6. Select Program Folder
At this step, you should specify the Program Folder to contain shortcuts for the components being installed. In the Select Program Folder dialog box, you can use the default folder name, enter a new folder name, or select another folder from within the Existing Folders list.

Setup will add program icons to the Program Folder specified.

XSecurePro Installation - step10

7. Setup
With the data specified, Setup begins to install the package. It shows how files of the components are being installed into the destination directory. Finally, Setup creates the XSecurePro Program folder with shortcuts for the package components. It also adds the XSecurePro item to the Programs menu.

XSecurePro Installation - step11

8. Setup complete
At this step, Setup informs you that the package is ready to run. In the Setup complete dialog box, click Finish to complete Setup.
You may run the installed programs by clicking program's icons from the XSecurePro Programs' folder.

XSecurePro Installation - step12

At any step of installation, you can use the Cancel button. The Exit Setup window appears.

You can confirm exiting or choose to continue installing.

Installation Notes

LPR printer driver

The LPR printer driver for MS Windows NT4 is manually installed by running the self-extracting archive file, lprd.exe. This file can be found in the distributive directory with uncompressed package installation files.

NFS-Client for MS Windows 9x/ME

NFS-Client for MS Windows 9x/ME can be installed manually after installation of the main package. You can do this from the XWPNFS32.W95 subdirectory in the home directory (see the XWPNFS32.W95\readme file for more information). NFS-Client should only be installed using the Custom installation type of Setup. You must restart your PC after installation of NFS-Client to activate its driver. Also, you must restart your PC after you change the license file, xwpdllid.dll.

To install NFS-Client for MS Windows 9x/ME:

  1. Copy the files from the XWPNFS32.W95 subdirectory in the home directory into a separate directory on your floppy or hard disk

  2. On the DESKTOP, choose My Computer, Control Panel, and Network; then click on the Add button

  3. Select Client and press Add

  4. From within the Select Network Client window, press the Have disk button

  5. In the Install From Disk window, specify the full path defined in step 1 and press OK

  6. From within the Select Network Client window, select XWPNFS32 Client for NFS Networks and press OK to start installing.

The XWPNFS32 Client installation will result in including the XWPNFS32 Client for NFS Networks into the list of network components installed on your system. To finish installation, press OK.

NFS-Client for MS Windows NT4/2000/XP

NFS-Client for MS Windows NT4/2000/XP can only be installed by using the Custom installation type of Setup. You must restart your PC after installation of NFS-Client to activate its driver.

Exporting XServer's Settings During Installation

You can port XServer's settings on other PCs by creating and using the xsetup.ini file as follows:

  1. Install the package and save its distributive directory

  2. Make desired XServer's settings (resulting in the "[XSETUP]" section in the xwp.ini file under the home directory)

  3. Copy the "[XSETUP]" section from the xwp.ini file into the xsetup.ini file except line "FontPath"

  4. Put the xsetup.ini file into the distributive directory of the package

  5. Use your new distributive directory (with the xsetup.ini file) as a distributive directory for the secondary "silent" installations on other PCs. The resulting home directory of the package will contain the xwp.ini file with your "[XSETUP]" section in it.
