Running ALM Client MSI Files

The ALM Client MSI file enables you to locally deploy ALM client components on a workstation.

To run the ALM Client MSI file:

  1. Log on to the client machine with administrator privileges.

    Note: If you work on multiple ALM versions side-by-side and include client registration in the ALM Client MSI file, close all open instances of previous versions of ALM/Quality Center.

  2. Run the MSI file. The ALM Client Setup Wizard opens.

    Click Next.

  3. The End-User License Agreement page opens.

    Accept the terms of the license agreement, and click Next.

  4. The Destination Folder page opens.

    Accept the default path for installing the ALM Client files, or click Change to select a different folder.

    Note: If you are installing an updated version of ALM Client, you can select the same folder as the previous version.

    Click Next.

  5. The Ready to install page opens.

    Click Install to install the ALM Client on the workstation, or Back to change the installation settings.

    A status bar displays the progress of the ALM Client installation. When the installation is complete, click Finish to close the ALM Client Setup Wizard.

    Note: If you include client registration in the ALM Client MSI and the installation fails during client registration, the installation does not roll back automatically. Run the MSI using the msiexec command, and enable logging. This may assist in determining the reason for the installation failure.
