Saving the installation files on a Windows system

You must save the downloaded installation files on the Windows server on which you are installing Sterling B2B Integrator.

Before you begin

Consider the following points about the directories that are created for installation:
  • Do not create the installation directory manually before the start of the installation. If you create the installation directory before you begin, the installation will fail. The directory name provided during the installation process is used to create the new installation directory.
  • The server on which you are installing must have adequate free disk space.
  • If you need to install more than one instance of Sterling B2B Integrator on the same Windows server, you must install the second instance in a different directory.


Complete the following steps to copy the installation files:

  1. From the installation media, copy the compressed installation package to a location on your application server desktop.
  2. Decompress the installation package.
  3. Open the InstallationManager folder in the directory structure that is created when the installation package is decompressed.
    Several files are displayed.
  4. Decompress the file.
    This action creates a new IM_Win folder.
  5. Decompress the from the installation package.
    The action creates two new folders b2birepo and gmrepo. The IM_Win, b2birepo, and gmrepo folders must be at the same level in a directory.
    Important: gmrepo contains the repository file required to install Global Mailbox. For information about Global Mailbox, see Global Mailbox overview.
