D2000 System Configuration Guide
To start the configuration guide, click on the file D2Install.exe in the directory that has been created when creating a new instance.
A structure of the configuration tool is similar to the installer. You may use the "Next" and "Back" buttons when you go through the configuration dialog windows. The "Install" button runs the final configuration.
At first, you have to specify the input configuration file in the initial window. There are two files you may choose - the default configuration file or own file.
The default configuration file D2install.xml contains the default settings of system. This file is used when choosing the option "Default configuration".
The configuration tool enables both the manual and automatic configuration. When you click on "Next" button, the manual configuration will be done. It means, the user is guided through all the necessary dialogs in which he may specify the system settings.
The "Install" button starts the automatic configuration according to chosen configuration. The user cannot change the configuration parameters. There will be used those from the defined configuration file.
A user has three options:
- Use the default configuration (D2install.xml) and manually pass the configuration guide.
- Specify own configuration file and manually pass the configuration guide.
- Specify own configuration file and automatically configure D2000 System without the guide.
When selecting the automatic configuration, all the steps that configure the system are skipped and the final configuration is started (see the section "Final configuration").
All the steps below will be done, when selecting the manual configuration.
In the installation guide you could chose one of the following types of installation:
Each type of installation requires the different system settings. Therefore, the installation guide is different for each installation. The steps of configuration depend on the type of installation and the marked parameters in the single dialog boxes.
Each rectangle represents one or more configuration catalogs for the setting of system parameters. The configuration proceeds according to the arrows. The upper point represents the start position, i.e. the configuration dialog in which you have to choose a type of installation. The end point represents a final configuration as per the settings.
1. Basic settings (all types of installation)
In this dialog window, you define the mask of network and the path to the basic directories necessary for the D2000 System operation:
- Application – the directory to which all files necessary for application will be stored.
- Logging – the directory that will contain the information about the process activity.
This dialog allows to set type of licence used in D2000 System.

If some of the options is checked, this program will be installed after finishing the configuration. If some of the items is checked and disabled, the given program is installed on the computer and need not be installed again.

Double click on the particular client process opens the dialog window in which user may change its relative location ("Name" item) and the start parameters ("Parameters" item).
6. Remote client settings (Remote client)
Next step enables to configure the remote processes of D2000 System. If you check the checkbox in the "Install" column means that the given process will be created.
Double click over the remote client to open the configuration dialog box, in which the user may set next parameters.
The detailed parameters of remote client are described in the D2000 System Configuration Reference Manual.
Confirming a configuration
Before the final configuration, you must confirm the configuration.
The user may start the application or save the final configuration file for further usage.
Regardless of user decision, the final configuration is always stored to the folder D2Install in a target directory where is an instance of installation.
The final configuration is done automatically. In the dialog window, the user can see the information about each step of configuration. It also displays the information about the success or failure of the given step.
After finishing the configuration, the Complete button to close the guide is enabled. In this step the instance of D2000 System is installed, configured and ready for use.
