Install Back End Engine

Data Governor can only be installed up to a maximum of 4 times on the same server.

Each installation (instance) must be named one of the following:

  • Production

  • Staging

  • Test

  • Development

Attempts to install the same instance multiple times are not allowed. Instances are just labels used to identify one installation instance from another. An instance is otherwise no different from another instance.

For best performance, it is preferable to install only 1 instance per server.

Run the Installer

Execute the MSI Installer

Right click on DataGovernor.bat and Run As Administrator.

This will run the installer package and ensure that any issues that arise during the installation are output to a log.
