This guide will give you an insight on how to run a pervasive client installation on your machine. It will go through:
- Navigating to your installation folder
- Selecting the correct Actian PSQL Installer
- Guidance through the Installer
Step 1: Navigate to your Exchequer installation folder. AKA ‘Pervasive Installers’
Click ‘Start’ and type ‘Printers & Scanners’
Step 2: Find and open ‘PSQL-Workgroup-12.10.011.000-win’
Once you have found where your Pervasive Installers are stored, double click ‘PSQL-Workgroun-12.10.011.000-win’ and then click ‘Run’.
Step 3: Unzipping PSQL
Immediately click on ‘Unzip’. Everything is already set at this point. It will now automatically unzip the data ready to be used.
Step 4: Running the correct installer
Make sure that you click ‘Install PSQL v12 SP1 Client’ only. The ‘Workgroup Edition’ is for the installation on servers. Once you have clicked, please wait a few moments for the Actian PSQL InstallShield Wizard to set up.
Step 5: Starting the Actian PSQL Client Installer
When the Actian PSQL Client installer opens up, click next to advance to the ‘Licence Agreement’.
Step 6: Agreeing to the License Agreement
Click on ‘I accept the terms in the license agreement’. Once you have agreed to the License Agreement, click next to advance to the ‘Service Settings’.
Step 7: Selecting your Service Setting
The default selection here is ‘Run as an Application’. The best thing to have in place here would be ‘Run as a Service’. Once you have selected this option, click next to advance to the ‘Setup Type’.
Run as an Application will mean the user will have to manually start the application on start up or make sure that it is in the ‘Start-up’ section in the Task Manager.
It is strongly advised that ‘Run as a Service’ is used to ensure a more streamline experience.
Step 8: Selecting your Setup Type
The default selection here is ‘Complete’. Click next to advance to the confirmation of your installation.
Custom install will require you to manually select which features that you will want to be installed.
It is strongly advised that ‘Complete’ is used to ensure a more streamline experience.
Step 9: Confirming your installation
Once you are ready to install Actian PSQL, click on install to begin the installation process.
The installation wizard may take a few moments to install. This is normal.
Step 10: Finishing your installation
Once this screen appears, the installation process completed successfully. You can now press Finish and use the Actian PSQL Client.
