Installing the Siebel Web Server Extension

To install Siebel eBusiness Applications, you must have 50-100 MB of disk space on your system drive (usually C:) even if you intend to install Siebel eBusiness Applications into another drive.

NOTE:  It is not supported to run multiple instances of the SWSE on a single Web server to support multiple versions of Siebel eBusiness Applications in a production environment. If your business needs require doing so in your development or test environment, refer to Technical Note 456 on Siebel SupportWeb.

Follow the instructions below to install the software on a machine running under a Windows operating system.

To install Siebel Web Server Extension

NOTE:  This procedure is for installing the base product. For patch installation instructions, refer to Maintenance Release Guide provided with the patch.

  1. Log on as the OS administrator and insert the Windows Server Programs Web Server Extensions Language Extension Pack 1 CD-ROM (where Language stands for the Language Pack you want to deploy) into the CD-ROM drive (assumed to be D:) of the chosen server.
  2. In Windows Explorer, navigate to windows_server_eapp_lep1\eappweb and double-click setup.exe.
  3. The Welcome to InstallShield Wizard for Siebel Web Server screen appears.

  4. Click Next.
  5. Depending on whether you are installing your Siebel Web Server Extension for the first time or adding a new language to an existing instance, take the appropriate action:
  6. Confirm the Language Pack or Packs you are installing for the Siebel Web Server Extension and click Next.
  7. Servers are installed, at a minimum, with a primary (base) language, which is the primary language in which the Siebel Enterprise will run. Optionally, servers may have one or more additional languages installed on them.

    The installer validates installation requirements.

    NOTE:  If you did not install the Microsoft IIS software on this machine, a prompts appears, informing you that you must have it installed to continue. Click Cancel or Next and the installer will quit. Install the software, and then restart the installation.

    The installer prompts you that the setup program will install program shortcuts to your Program Folder with the name Siebel Web Server 7.x.x.

  8. Click Next and the installer automatically adds program icons to a folder in the Windows Program file called Siebel Web Server Extensions 7.x.x.
  9. NOTE:  To override the default action and install the program icons to a different Program folder in the list under Existing Folders, enter the name for that folder.

    The installer displays the location into which it will install the Siebel Database Server and any other servers you have elected to install. It also displays the file size.

    CAUTION:  If you are co-locating the servers of your Siebel implementation on one machine, do not install the Siebel Web Server Extension in the same Siebel root directory or you will overwrite the OS registry uninstallation data for the rest of the Siebel application.

    After all Siebel Web Server Extension files, including the Language Packs you specified, have been installed, the Siebel Software Configuration Wizard for Siebel Web Server Configuration launches.

    If you choose to close out of the Siebel Software Configuration Wizard and want to configure later, the installer displays the message:

    The InstallShield Wizard has successfully installed the Siebel Enterprise Server. Click Finish to exit the Wizard.

  10. Click Finish.

Proceed to Configuring the Siebel Web Server Extension.

NOTE:  You should install all the Language Packs that you want on your Web server before you configure the SWSE.
