Installing ETA on Windows

ETA can be installed on any 64-bit Windows machine using the ETA Windows Installer. The installer can also be used to upgrade an existing installation to a newer version.

You will need administrator rights to your PC or server to install ETA via the Windows Installer.

The installer uses the Jetty server, deploys its own copy of Java JRE and installs itself as a Windows service with the following defaults:

During the installation you will be prompted to:

By default, ETA will be installed in C:\Program Files (x86)\ETA\

In this guide, the installation folder is referred to as <ETA installation directory>The directory in which the ETA program has been installed, for example, C:\Program Files (x86)\Sintelix..

Note: If you upgrade from ETA 5 to 6 you will be prompted during the installation to migrate your data to a ETA 6 database. If you do not want to migrate your data at that time you can run the migration tool later (see Running the ETA 5 Migration Tool in the ETA Administrator's Guide).
