Using the Installer

The automated installer will install the Gemini web application to your web server (IIS) and configure a SQL Server database loaded with sample data to get you going.

The following must be present on your Windows Server. You can choose to have your IIS Web Server and SQL Server on the same machine or each running on different machines.

  • Microsoft .NET Framework v4.0
  • SQL Server 2005, 2008, 2008 Express or 2012
  • SMTP Service/Server (optionally required for email notifications)

If you cannot confirm or do not understand any of the above items then either contact us or your IT administrator.

Step 1 - Check Pre-requisites

Step 2 - Run Installer

Read and accept the License Agreement should you wish to install Gemini.

Step 3 - Enter License Key

Paste in the license key that was provided to you after sign-up.

Step 4 - Pick Install Location

Usually the default installation path is acceptable, but you can change this path as required.

Step 5 - Web Application Setup

Step 6 - Database Setup
