Part 1 - Install NPrinting Server or Client

  

NB: Installation of NPrinting Client follows the same steps as the NPrinting Server. Activation for NPrinting Client is done from within the Client. While for Server, activation is done within the NPrinting Management Console. In either case, the respectie application will open at the end of the installation process if you put a check in the Launch NPrinting Client/Server box before clicking on the Finish button. See Activate or Reactivate NPrinting.

  • You may install NPrinting Client alone on a computer for developing NPrinting Projects and manual report distribution.
  • You may install NPrinting Client and On-Demand Components on a computer for developing NPrinting Projects, whether On-Demand or not.
  • You may install NPrinting Server alone on a computer for running NPrinting Service to automate execution of scheduled jobs.
  • You may install NPrinting Server and On-Demand Components on a computer for running NPrinting Service to automate execution of scheduled jobs and provide On-Demand reporting.
  • You may install NPrinting Client, Server and On-Demand Components on a computer for developing NPrinting Projects, whether On-Demand or not, running NPrinting Service to automate execution of scheduled jobs and provide On-Demand reporting, all on the same computer.

The installer will have been downloaded to the Downloads folder to be installed on a single computer for doing all of the above.

Double click on and install the NPrinting setup files in any order. I will start with NPrinting Server. Strongly recommend copying these files directly to the target computer. Do not install over the network if possible. Installation needs to be done by a local administrator. The installers should be 'run as administrator' as well.
