NOTE: You need to do this on a computer that is connected to the internet. Later you will have the option to bring your installation kit to another computer if your server environment is not internet-connected. As a part of your software delivery, you will get a pcINSTALL application. Place this application in a suitable folder. Your customized installation package will be downloaded in a sub-folder called pcDOWNLOADS of this directory.

The pcINSTALL.exe can be downloaded from here:
(Running pcINSTALL.exe will also give you the latest stable release.)

Download the file (do not run it directly from the server). We suggest that you download this into a dedicated directory (example C:\EFP). Further downloads will be automatically done during the install process and they will automatically be stored in a sub-directory of the directory where you put pcInstall.exe.

Once downloaded start the installation by clicking on the “pcINSTALL” icon

Start Installation

Click on “LinkedIn” to use the LinkedIn authentication service. When asked for – provide your organizational email. If you don’t have any LinkedIn account, it is possible to create a local account. Use your own e-mail address as user name.

NOTE: For security purposes each license is locked to an organizational email domain. To be able to use this installer you need to have the same domain. If an implementation partner is assisting with installation, both the partner domain and the customer domain will be allowed. Both domains will be entered in a later step. This means you have to use an organizational email address of the customer (or the implementing partner) (and not secondary email like a Hotmail or Gmail address).
