Running the Installation Program in Graphical Mode

The following sections describe how to run the installation program in graphical mode:


Running the Installation Program

Start the installation program as described in Starting the Installation Program.

The installation program prompts you to enter specific information about your system and configuration. For instructions on responding to the prompts during installation, see the following table.

Table 4-1 Installing WebLogic RFID Enterprise Server in Graphical Mode
In this window . . .
Perform the following action . . .
Click Next to proceed with the installation. You may cancel the installation at any time by clicking Exit.
BEA License Agreement
Read the BEA Software License Agreement and indicate your acceptance of the terms of the agreement by selecting Yes and clicking Next.
Choose BEA Home Directory
Specify the BEA Home directory in which to install WebLogic RFID Enterprise Server. You must select a directory that contains an instance of WebLogic Server 9.2. See Choosing a BEA Home Directory.
Choose Product Directory
This window is not displayed if you are adding components to an existing installation. Instead, you are prompted to confirm the product installation directory. If you do so, the selected components are installed in the product installation directory you specified during the initial installation.
Specify the directory in which you want to install the software and click Next. You can accept the default product directory (rfid_enterprise20) or create a new product directory.
If you choose to create a new directory, the installation program automatically creates one for you.
Choose Shortcut Location
This window is displayed only under the following conditions:
  • You have Administrator privileges.
  • You are performing an initial installation.
  • You are installing on a Windows platform.
Specify the Start menu folder in which you want the Start menu shortcuts created. You can select from the following options:
  • "All Users" Start Menu folder (recommended)
  • Selecting this option provides all users registered on the machine with access to the installed software. However, only users with Administrator privileges can create shortcuts in the All Users folder. Therefore, if a user without Administrator privileges uses the Configuration Wizard to create domains, Start menu shortcuts to the domains are not created. In this case, users can manually create shortcuts in their local Start menu folders, if desired.

  • Local user's Start Menu folder
  • Selecting this option ensures that other users registered on this machine will not have access to the Start menu entries for this installation.

When you click Next, the installation begins.
Read the information displayed about BEA products and services. When the installation program has finished copying the specified files to your system, click Next.
Installation Complete
Displays a message indicating that the installation was successful.
Specify whether you want to run the Configuration Wizard. Clear the check box for this option if you do not want to launch the Configuration Wizard at this time. You can run the Configuration Wizard later, but until you run the Configuration Wizard to create a domain and configure WebLogic RFID Enterprise Server components, you will not have access to the RFID Enterprise Server software.
Clicking the Done button exits the installer and starts the Configuration Wizard.

Note: If the Run the Configuration Wizard check box is selected (the default), there will be a short wait between the time you click Done and the time the Configuration Wizard is displayed.


What's Next?

By default, WebLogic RFID Enterprise Server uses the evaluation license file installed in the BEA Home directory so that you can start using the product immediately. For information on obtaining and installing a production license, see Installing and Updating License Files.

For additional post-installation information, see Post-Installation Information.
