Before you start the program:

Confirm that your computer meets or exceeds the requirements to run Toolset on the web.

For more information about installing Desktop Engineer's Toolset, see Install Desktop Engineer's Toolset.

At this time, nothing has been modified on your computer. If you want to change anything before this window, click Back.

  1. Log in to Windows as an Administrator.
  2. Browse to your download location and launch SolarWinds Toolset On the Web executable.
    The setup program has either an exe or msi or extension.
  3. If you are installing Engineer's Toolset on a server with no other Orion module, select English as your preferred language, and then click Next.

    Engineer's Toolset is not localized. If you select any other language, it is applied in the Orion Web Console, but all Toolset areas are still in English. If there is a SolarWinds module already installed, the language is automatically applied and this step is skipped.

  4. If there is an existing SolarWinds Orion module, back up your Orion database, enter YES in the provided field, and then click Next.
  5. If the installer detects that Internet Information Service (IIS) is not installed, select Continue with Orion installation, and click Next.
  6. Accept the license agreement on the License Agreement window, and then click Next.
  7. Browse to a file system folder where you want to install the Toolset program files, and then click Next. The default location is \Program Files\SolarWinds\Toolset.

    This step is not necessary if you are already running other Orion modules on the server. Engineer's Toolset on the Web is installed in the default credential.

  8. If you are installing Engineer's Toolset on the Web on a server where you already have SolarWinds NPM installed, select an Orion installation, and then click Next.
    • To use an existing Orion SQL database, select Advanced, and then select the Orion SQL database.
    • To evaluate Engineer's Toolset on the Web or use a new MS SQL Express database, select Express.
  9. Click Next to start the installation.
  10. If prompted to restart IIS, select Restart after installation.
  11. Click Finish.
  12. Click Enter Licensing Information, and then enter the license key in the Activate Web Toolset window. Complete the Activate Web Toolset wizard.

    If you are evaluating Engineer's Toolset on the Web, click Continue Evaluation. You can activate your license later. For more information, see Software License Key.

In adherence to Microsoft security policies, Toolset cannot be installed from a remote machine with UAC enabled.
