Please note that the MindLink Products can be co-located on the same server, saving time and costs setting up and configuring separate server instances for each of the solutions.
The Installation wizard will be the same for each product. Below MindLink mobile is used as the example.
1 - Log on to the Server that has been provisioned for MindLink as the Service Account that will be running MindLink, or an Administrator
2 - Navigate to the MindLink Installer MSI and double click
The name of this file will vary depending on the product and version number.
3 - Click Next
4 - Tick the box to accept the terms of the License Agreement and click Next
5 - Specify the Directory into which you want to install MindLink and click Next again
If you install MindLink for another component to the same folder, they will be separated in their own sub folders as seen below.
6 - Specify the account to be used to run the service (this will have been decided in Section 1: Planning), and click next
7 - Click Install
8 - Click Finish. This will launch the MindLink Management Center - we will configure this in Section 4: Management Center.
Default installation directories are dependent on the product to be installed
MindLink Anywhere (v3) - C:\Program Files\MindLink Software\MindLink Anywhere
MindLinkAPI - C:\Program Files\MindLink Software\MindLink API
MindLinkMobile - C:\Program Files\MindLink Software\MindLink Mobile
The service executable file is called MindLink.Core.Host.exe, and its associated config file is called MindLink.Core.Host.dll.config
Log files/installation paths depend on the product e.g. C:\Program Files\MindLink Software\MindLink Mobile\Connector Service\logs this folder is created at first run.
The MindLink Server is launched by Starting the Service from Services.msc window. The Service name is dependent on the product name:
MindLink Anywhere - MindLink Anywhere Server
MindLink Mobile - MindLink Mobile Server
MindLink API - MindLink API Server
