The entire BVMS installation package, available on the downloadstore, contains the client as well as the server components. When a BVMS client needs to be deployed, all of this data (over 2.5GB) needs to be copied to the target workstation, which can be quite a challenge in some environments.
Once the BVMS Management Server is set-up, it creates a client installation package (mainly used for the auto-upgrade functionality). This client installation package is a lot smaller compared to the full installation package and is located on the BVMS Management Server (assuming the default installation directory is used):
In order to use the client installation package: copy all the files in this directory from the management server to the new workstation and start BVMS.msi (please note Setup.exe will trigger the auto update mechanism, which will not work as there are no existing components to be updated). The MSI will start the installation process and will allow you to select Operator Client, Configuration client and/or SDK. Please note:
The correct version of the .NET framework will need to be installed manually before this procedure is used. This can be found in the zip file available in the product catalogue: “zip file extraction location”\ISSetupPrerequisites\Microsoft .NET Framework x.x.
