Install Adobe Connect and related components like Events module, AEM, telephony adaptors, and database using the installer.

The article provides instructions to install, configure, and deploy Adobe Connect 9.8 and the associated components. For instructions for the other versions of Adobe Connect, see the installation guide of other versions at www.adobe.com/go/learn_Connect_doclisting_en.

The following naming conventions are used for file paths:

  • [root_install_dir]: By default, Adobe Connect 9.8 installs in C:\Connect\9.8.0\ folder. The user content and the logs are placed in C:\Connect\ folder.
  • [extract_dir]: The location on your hard disk where you extract the files from the Adobe Connect ESD file.

After reviewing and gathering the required information from Prepare to migrate, install, and configure article, you are ready to install Adobe Connect.

  1. Verify that the computer is connected to the Internet.

  2. Log on to the computer as an Administrator. By default, Adobe Connect installer requires a different local administrator account, than the one you are logged in with. Keep the credentials of an administrator account handy, using which you want to install Adobe Connect.

  3. Close all applications.

  4. Extract the files from the Adobe Connect ESD file to a location on your hard disk. [extract-dir] denotes this location.

  5. Double-click the install.exe file. Adobe Connect 9.8.0.1 installation file is available at[extract_dir]\Connect\9.8.0.1\Disk1\InstData\VM\install.exe. In case of DVD, double-click the install.exe file at [DVD Drive]\Connect\9.8.0.1\DisK1\InstData\VM.

  6. Select a language and click OK to continue.

  7. On the Introduction screen, click Next to continue.

  8. On the License Agreement screen read the agreement, select I accept the terms of the License Agreement, and click Next.

  9. On the Deployment Options screen, select Deploy Adobe Connect to install Adobe Connect. To install Adobe Connect, provide the credentials of a local administrator account, other than the one logged in with.

    Poznámka:

    If you choose to use a different local administrator account, ensure that the account has the appropriate permissions to install the services. For more information, see Add the Log on as a service Right to an Account.

  10. Select Perform pre-deployment tasks in the background without affecting the live server. If you select this option, the installer starts to install Adobe Connect and other selected components without deploying them. To deploy them, re-run the installer later and select Deploy Adobe Connect. You can run the installer with both the options selected, if necessary.

  11. Enter your serial number and click Next.

  12. To download your license file from Adobe, click the link. Click Choose and browse to the downloaded license file. Click Next.

  13. Click Next to accept the default Adobe Connect installation location (C:\Connect), or click Choose to select a different location.

    Poznámka:

    Subsequent installations of Adobe Connect on the same machine share content and logs location. However files for different versions of Adobe Connect are in their own version folder in C:\Connect. If you are migrating from an earlier version, all the files except content and log files are backed up.

    • If you’ve chosen a different location and decide to use the default location instead, click Restore Default.
    • If Adobe Connect is already installed on this computer, the Update Existing Install screen appears. Select the check box to confirm you’ve backed up your database and the Adobe Connect root directory.
  14. Choose the products you want to install and click Next to continue. AEM-related options can be selected only if your Adobe Connect license has Events module enabled. Otherwise, the AEM options are unavailable.

    Poznámka:

    If the Adobe Connect installer detects that Microsoft SQL Server Enterprise Edition is already installed on the computer, the installer does not install the embedded database. If you’re migrating and are already using the embedded database, Adobe Connect uses the existing database. When the installer detects an earlier version of Microsoft SQL Server Express Edition, the installer prompts to upgrade the database. When the installer detects an external database, it prompts the user to upgrade the database.

  16. If you installed the embedded database engine, enter a strong password and confirm it, and then click Next.

  17. Set values for the Database Connection settings listed below, then click Next. Items marked with an asterisk (*) are required.

    • Content Cache Size An integer from 1 through 100 specifying the percent of free disk space to use to store content on Adobe Connect. The cache can grow beyond the percent you specify, so it’s a good idea to keep the value from 15 through 50. If you leave the box blank or enter 0, no cache is used, and content is mirrored on Adobe Connect or any external volumes. Before configuring this feature, see Configuring shared storage.
