a)Get the Installer by login to Passport Advantage site - Web Assembly Version
Notes: Passport Advantage Site has two version of installer.
Web version, they call Web Assembly, is easy and fast to install but has limitations.
Limitations: If your organization uses proxy, scrict group policy and routing script in internet explorer, This web version will not work as it requires some files on fly during installation.
You also need to specify correct physical proxy server in order to downlaod the web assembly version. As i know, many organization uses proxy server which may or may not be on physical server, you might have hard time to install using proxy. Anyway, perform test connection to know if the settings are correct. If security policy on internet explorer has strict restrictions then even after successful download, you will face issue during install.
I would recommend not using Web assembly version if proxy is used to connect to internet.
b) Get the Installer by login to Passport Advantage site - Non Web Assembly Version

2. Extract it and run the Installtion Manager with the tsf file selected for all the above. When doing the extraction extract all the .zip files downloaded above to the same directory, they will still have a subdirectory underneath this one for each product. This prevents Installation Manager from having to prompt for the location of each product's repository
3. Remaining steps are self explanatory.

1. Do i need to update the Libraries in the Library Manager for different protocol.
No. RIT is exact replica of Green Hat Tester product. Library Manager automatically finds all the jars or related libraries
2. Do i need to upgrade the DB schema?
No. Exisiting DB schema is good enough if your Green Hat version is 5.4.1. RIT will work with that schema

I would recommend to uninstall GH Tester before installing RIT.
