The standard Server installer creates a complete BiblioTECH Server environment onto the 'Server' computer. Please note this does not have to be dedicated server infrastructure; many BiblioTECH Servers are run on standard desktop PCs. Determining the specification of hardware you require is entirely dependent upon either the infrastructure available upon installation at any given site, or any hardware you plan to purchase to operate BiblioTECH on.
Checks for an existing BiblioTECH license– if a valid licence is NOT found (i.e. a new installation) or the information indicates that the license has expired, the SETUP process will request a new key. If a valid key is not entered, the process will abort.
Uninstalls ALL BiblioTECH Server services (both 'Core' and 'Add-On' services).
Installs/upgrades all executable files in the BT8 installation.
Note:Any existing configuration files and data files will not be modified.
Installs the 'Core' BiblioTECH services.
Starts the services in sequence.
As the services start, they perform 'in depth' housekeeping to ensure all required data structures are in place and have been checked to ensure internal consistency.
If you had any 'Add-On' modules installed, you will need to download and install the updated versions now.
If you want to completely remove BiblioTECH from a Server, you will need to manually remove the data files in the BiblioTECH program and data structures. By default these folders are located in C:\Program Files (x86)\BiblioTECH and C:\ProgramData\BiblioTECH (hidden by default).
