make installing/upgrading platform server 1-click or less
Install Processes

when you upgraded or install a new platform server..

- you have to install .net framework manually

- configure iis manually

- use the configuration tool

- do a commandline command updatedb

- start services

- do a commandline scinstall

- update recheck licence.

why can't we have this all in 1 wizard and/or unattended install with a config-script.

Great idea!

Since half of the checklist can be scripted failry easily this shouldn't be a major problem. I actually created something fairly basic for a "First Install". Shouldn't be too hard to actually do a detect on the architecture (x86 or x64).

Also see my new request, making this even easier:

Hi all!

The previously Express Editions installers (wizard) were very practical. In 2 or 3 clicks we install Sql Server, Platform Server and Service Studio at once.

When I want to install/update/upgrade a Platform Server I need to do a couple of things before and after the Platform Server installation (check .net framework, backup files, start outsystems services, publish service center, etc), that things aren't difficult, but is boring to do all that, when I know you can create a wizard with all that, like you did created on 4.* Express Editions.

Hi J,

Just to make sure that you are aware of that since O10, the whole installation process can automated using the Unattended Installation API. You can check it here:


I think this should address your concerns. If not please drop us a line here and, please, keep those ideas coming.

Thanks for the heads up, but this idea is from 2010, so I know stuff has improved  ;)
