Extracting a Product Installation Kit from a Suite
The Product Installation Kit utility allows system administrators the option of making a limited set of AspenTech products available for installation by end users. This option is designed for enterprise clients who want to deploy a selected set of AspenTech products to their end users. The Product Installation Kit utility takes in the location of a product's MSI file (*.msi) from the aspenONE DVDs and the directory location where it should make a copy of the selected product’s installation kit. When the utility is run, it creates an installation kit for the selected product in the specified directory. End users then run their product installations from that directory.

To create a product installation kit:
1 2 Determine the AspenTech product that you want to make available in the installation kit. You may make only one product installation kit at a time. Insert the aspenONE 2006 Administration DVD into your DVD reader (or, if the aspenONE media has been copied to a network, open the aspenONE Infrastructure folder). Using Windows Explorer, browse to aspenone2006admdvd | Tools and double-click SeparateProdKit.exe. The Generate Product Installation Kit dialog box will display.

In the Select the product's MSI file from suite CD-ROM text box, enter the path to the MSI file for which you want to create an installation kit, or click the browse (…) to browse the DVD for the MSI file. In the Directory to copy the installation kit* text box, enter the path to where you want the installation kit to be copied. Typically, this will be the shared directory that end users will access to run the AspenTech product installations. Click Generate Kit. The utility will create an installation kit for the selected MSI file and copy it to the specified directory. Repeat steps 2-5 for each product for which you want to create an installation kit.

4

5 6

Note: If you are extracting a product from the aspenONE 2006 Administration DVD, there is an additional requirement to copy the \core\ directory from the DVD into the directory where the product was extracted. 7 8 Notify end users of the shared directory where the installation kits are located. This step describes how to initiate a product installation using a product installation kit. From the target computer, browse to the shared directory where the kits are located and double click a product's .msi file. The AspenTech Installation Wizard will display. Please refer to each product's installation guide for specific information about installing each product.

Installation Logging
Installation log files can be enabled through two options: • • Option 1: Using the regular computer policies for Windows Installer Option 2: By setting EnableLogging under HKLM\Software\AspenTech\Setup. The installer only checks for the existence of EnableLogging. It can be set to anything.

Log files are created under the %TEMP% directory of the user logged on to the computer. If using option 1, refer to the platform SDK help on “Logging Policy” for more information on the valid logging levels. Using option 2 generates a detailed log file that is useful for debugging installation problems. The EnableLogging option is supported by both the standard interactive install from the product DVDs and the Silent Install (ATRunUnattended.exe). If none of the above options are used, the installer generates a basic log file under the %TEMP% directory of the user logged onto the computer. The log file will have the same name as the product name.

Silent Install
AspenTech provides a way to automatically install AspenTech software to multiple computers to ensure a consistent configuration of the software on all target computers called the Aspen Silent Install tool. The Aspen Silent Install tool allows system administrators to create XML files that control the unattended installation of AspenTech tools to individual

3 Installation Process

21

computers without requiring user interaction. You can create different XML files to deploy unique configurations to different groups of computers. Using this tool, the information that would be entered as part of a standard install is stored in an XML file. This XML file is then used as an input to the installs, which can run unattended without needing to prompt the user for any information. The information in the XML file includes: • • • • • • What products to install. What features of the products to install. Where to install the products. Where the Aspen Framework (AFW) server is located (if AFW is used). Where the ADSA server is located (if ADSA is used). Any other information collected by a dialog box.

Deploying a common Aspen client application configuration is a three-step process: • • • Record the installation XML file. Create a shortcut to the AtRunUnattended.exe file. Invoke the installation XML file from the client computer.

The XML file must be generated on a system that matches the configuration of the destination computers. For example, if you wish to generate an XML file for Product A, B, and C, then you need to ensure that A, B, or C is not already installed on the recording system.

Operating System Requirements
The Aspen Silent Install tool may be run with the following operating systems and corresponding service packs: • • • Windows Server 2003 SP1 Windows 2000 SP 4 Windows XP SP2

Recording an XML file
The first step of the deployment process is recording the configuration XML file. You may record the XML file on any computer as long as you reference the network share where the installation kit will reside.

To record the XML file:
1 Click Start | Run…. Enter the following command in the Open: field: msiexec /i \\myserver\myshare\mysuite.msi RECORDRESPONSE="1" where \\myserver\myshare\ is the name of a network share that contains the new installation kit and mysuite.msi is the name of the AspenTech product

suite from which you are installing products, for example, AspenEngineeringSuite2006.msi. This share must be accessible by the client computers; the XML file specifically refers to this share. Notes: • Running this command invokes an installation procedure that appears to be installing the software. However, it is only obtaining the information needed to install the software and storing it in an XML file. No products are installed during this procedure. The sequence of the dialogs may be slightly different depending on the product suite that is being installed.

The AspenTech Installer wizard appears.

Creating a Shortcut for Unattended Client Installations
This step creates a shortcut to the AtRunUnattended.exe program so that users can easily run the program from their client computer.

To create a shortcut to AtRunUnattended.exe:
1 Open Windows Explorer on the server computer and browse to the shared folder containing AtRunUnattended.exe and the XML file. The AtRunUnattended.exe is located on the aspenONE 2006 Administration DVD in the aspenone2006admdvd\Tools directory. Right-click in the right pane and select New | Shortcut. Type the name AtRunUnattended.exe and click Next. Type the name of the shortcut and click Finish.

5 6

Right-click the new shortcut and select Properties. Change the Target to include the XML file. Make sure that both AtRunUnattended.exe and the XML file use the same share name. For example:

\\myserver\myshare\AtRunUnattended.exe /I | /S \\myserver\myshare\ProcessExplorer.xml [/noreboot | /forcereboot]
o

Either the /I or /S switch is required. The /I switch causes the unattended install to display some status information as it is running. Use the /S switch to make the install completely “silent”. The /noreboot switch is optional and does not reboot the computer after an unattended install. The /forcereboot is optional and forces the computer to reboot after an unattended install.

o o

If neither the /noreboot nor /forcereboot switch is specified, the tool will automatically reboot the computer if required. 7 8 Click OK. Notify client users with the name and location of the shortcut or you may include the shortcut in an e-mail that you send to the client users.

Note: A log file, such as, "ATRunAttended Mon Jun 16 20.13.02 2003.log" is written to the %temp% directory of the user logged on to the computer.

Installing using the XML file
The next step of the deployment process is to run the configuration XML file from the client computer. This will install the configuration that you specified during the XML-recording process to the client computer.

Modifying the XML file
If you used the Generate Product Installation Kit utility (SeparateProdKit.exe) to extract specific product installation kits and want to use those files for the silent install, you must edit each product's MSI file path in the XML file. For more information about the Generate Product Installation Kit utility, see "Extracting a Product Installation Kit from a Suite" in this chapter. The XML file has an element <PRODUCTN> for each product that was selected when the XML file was recorded. Each element contains a file path to the product's MSI file. N is a running number 1, 2, 3 and so on. A sample element in XML will look like, <PRODUCT2>Y:\aspenone2006dvd6\Aspen Plus 2006.msi</PRODUCT2>. Each product's MSI file path may need to be edited to include the path where the Generate Product Installation Kit utility copied the MSI file. Open the XML file in a text editor, such as, Microsoft Notepad and modify the msi file path to the directory where the product's installation kit was copied.

4 FAQs and Troubleshooting

Where can I get more information on the Software License Manager (SLM)? For more information on licensing, please see Software License Manager (SLM) Installation and Reference Guide on the aspenONE Documentation DVD. Where is the product documentation? To access the documentation, insert the aspenONE Documentation DVD into your DVD Reader. What if I do not have a DVD Reader? If you do not have a DVD Reader, please contact AspenTech Support http://support.aspentech.com. I cannot find the products I have installed previously. Where are they? AspenTech has reduced the number of products it supports by retiring some and combining others into other existing products. In some cases, a product may have been retired, and some products that were previously installed individually have been combined into other products and are no longer available separately. There are also a small number of products that are currently sold but were not available when the DVD set was produced. These products can be downloaded from the Support website. For more information, check the Product Lifecyle page on the AspenTech Support Website, which has a listing of retired and combined products. If you cannot find your product, contact AspenTech Support.
