Using the Wizard to Install NuoDB on Windows

To use the wizard to install NuoDB, double-click the .exe file that you downloaded and respond to the prompts. As shown in the image below, you might see a User Account Control dialog, which indicates that the installer is about to make changes to the computer. The installer is signed as NuoDB, Inc. Click Yes.

During installation, the wizard prompts you to indicate whether you want to start NuoDB services, as well as the system tray monitor, after installation is complete and upon reboot. The appearance of this dialog differs depending on whether you are installing the NuoDB Community Edition or theNuoDB Professional or Enterprise Edition.

If you are installing the Community Edition, you will likely always want to select this option, as shown in the following image:

If you are installing the Professional or Enterprise Edition, select this option if you plan to run a domain that includes only single host databases. If you select this option, you must also enter a password that you choose. The dialog looks like this:

After installation is complete, the installer launches the NuoDB Admin Center in your default browser. Also, in the $NUODB_HOME\etc\default.properties file, the domainPassword property is set to the password you entered.

If you choose not to start services automatically then you need to add this host to a domain and then manually start NuoDB services. See Creating the Domain and Adding Hosts as well as Starting and Stopping NuoDB Services.
