When installing EmpowerID, you have two options, you can install EmpowerID using the MSI or you can use the EmpowerID Configurator to create a batch file that is configured with the installation settings for your environment. Then when ready, you can execute the batch file and silently install EmpowerID on any network-reachable dedicated EmpowerID Web server.
Please note that when installing EmpowerID with the silent installer, you have less configuration options than when using the MSI.
The User Account Control (UAC) in Windows must be turned off for the installation of EmpowerID. All settings should be disabled in secpol.msc before proceeding.
To ensure a smooth install, make sure EmpowerID files, including websites and programs, are excluded from anti-virus scanning software settings.
