Installing from Installation Manager

IBM® Installation Manager is a program for installing, updating, and modifying software packages. It helps you manage the IBM applications, or packages, that it installs on your computer.

Installation Manager provides tools that help you keep packages up to date, modify packages, manage the licenses for your packages, and uninstall packages.

Installation Manager includes six wizards for maintaining packages:

  • The Install wizard walks you through the installation process. You can install a package by simply accepting the defaults, or you can modify the default settings to create a custom installation. Before you install, you get a complete summary of your selections throughout the wizard. Use the wizard to install one or more packages.
  • The Update wizard searches for available updates to packages that you have installed. An update might be a released fix, a new feature, or a new version of the product. Details of the contents of the update are provided in the wizard to help you determine whether to apply an update.
  • The Modify wizard helps you modify certain elements of a package that you have already installed. During the first installation of the package, you select the features that you want to install. Later, if you require other features, you can use the modify packages wizard to add them to your package. You can also remove features, and add or remove languages.
  • The Manage Licenses wizard helps you set up the licenses for your packages. Use this wizard to change your trial license to a full license, to set up your servers for floating licenses, and to select which type of license to use for each package.
  • The Roll Back wizard helps you to revert to a previous version of a package.
  • The Uninstall wizard removes a package from your computer. You can uninstall more than one package at a time.

Installation Manager must be installed before you can install your software packages. Installation Manager is automatically installed in these circumstances:

  • When you start the installation of your package from the launchpad
  • When you start the installation of your package from a trial site

The latest version of Installation Manager might be required for your package. Updates are discovered automatically if you have not cleared the Search service repositories for updates check box on the Installation Manager preference page.

When you exit the product, your license is returned to the license manager, and it is made available to another user.
