To install the CALUMO Web Server, execute the “CALUMO Web Server.exe” installation file on the web server.

A full log of the installation actions is available in the installation directory that you chose; by default, this is <installation directory>\CALUMO Webserver Installer.log

Installation Prerequisites

The prerequisites screen is displayed showing the status of all the required items. If any items are not detected, they will show as “not installed”.

The CALUMO Web Server has two prerequisites:

  • IIS (Web Server) – This needs to be installed and configured as per the requirements detailed in CALUMO Web Server before you can install the CALUMO Web Server
  • .NET 4.6.2 Framework – This is installed by the installer if it is not detected. You may need to reboot the machine once this has been done. The installer will guide you through this process.
