Viz Pilot System Installation

This section describes the steps in the installation process for the Viz Pilot system:

  • Installing software components with Viz Pilot Setup Wizard

  • Configuring the setup with Viz Pilot Configuration

Viz Pilot Setup Wizard

The Viz Pilot Setup Wizard installs the necessary Viz Pilot components on your machine.

Note: The installer migrates any configuration settings from older versions of Viz Pilot, for example Database information. This applies to the installer for Viz Pilot 7.1 and newer and only migrates from versions 6.0 and up. Settings from the most recent version of Viz Pilot will be migrated in the event multiple versions are installed on your machine. For example, settings from Viz Pilot 7.0 will migrate but not from version 6.1 if both are installed.

  1. Click the Viz Pilot installer (*.msi) file to start the Viz Pilot Setup Wizard.
