Upon making the selection to install Servoy Developer, follow the installation wizard through the following steps:

  1. Specify the installation path. Servoy will choose a default application path appropriate to the system on which Servoy is being installed.

    Note: In Windows machines, the default path is the root folder rather than Program Files, to allow full write access to the installation folder.

  2. Select your desired database options.
  3. Confirm or enter the database configuration or connection details as appropriate:
  4. Select options to include with the installation. The nodes for Application Server and Developer, when expanded, show the full list of options along with the space requirements.:
  5. Specify the your desired workspace location. This folder will contain your project files.

    Note: After this step, Servoy will start installing the required files. This may take some time, particularly the last step (Processing files), during which the activity bar appears to pause. Be assured that the installation is still working in the background. After a few minutes, it will say "Finished" in the center of the progress bar.

  6. Once the "Finished" message appears, click Next to continue. For Mac and Linux users, a message that says "Installation has completed successfully" will appear. For Windows users, an intermediate screen will appear before this message, which allows you to specify Start menu and desktop shortcut options.

    Note: Hitting Quit at this stage installs the files but does not finalize. The files will have been installed and will be visible in the destination folder, but the installation will not work properly.

    Note: At this point you can click the designated button to generate an installation script.
