Installation and Configuration Notes
VERSION 4.10.0
1. 2. The RWD uPerform client installation requires “administrator rights.” The RWD uPerform client installation contains two components. The first component is the RWD uPerform client, which is the authoring and editing portion of the RWD uPerform application. The second component is the Migration Wizard, which supports migrating RWD Info Pak v5.51 or later content into RWD uPerform. For the Migration Wizard to function properly, the RWD uPerform client and the Info Pak 5.51 or newer Administrator suite must be installed. 3. The default installation directory is C:\Program Files\RWD uPerform. 4. RWD uPerform requires the Microsoft .NET Framework v3.5, Microsoft C++ 2005 v8.0.56336, and Microsoft Visual J# v2.0 redistributables. The installation package will install these components provided you run setup.exe. To install the software using setup.exe:  Download and run setup.exe.  Follow the instructions in the installation dialog. OR  Run setup.exe on the RWD uPerform installation DVD.  Follow the instructions in the installation dialog. 5. You may choose to install the Microsoft .NET Framework v3.5, Microsoft C++ 2005 v8.0.56336, and Microsoft Visual J# v2.0 redistributables prior to installing RWD uPerform. With this scenario you may choose to run the RWD uPerform_Client.msi file directly instead of using setup.exe. To do this you must extract the .msi file from setup.exe. Refer to the installation documentation. You may still run the delivered setup.exe even if the prerequisites were pre-installed. If you choose to allow the installation package to install the Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5, then an Internet connection is required.
