Installing the Build System Toolkit by using Installation Manager

When you install the Build System Toolkit on the build machines by using IBM® Installation Manager, you can use one of two methods: install from a web installer or install from an Installation Manager repository package.

About this task

For Windows operating systemTo run the application without administrative privileges on a Windows 7 operating system, you must install the application package into a directory that is not virtualized. The Program Files directory on Windows 7 is virtualized. When you install by using Installation Manager, the default installation directory is C:\Program Files\IBM\TeamConcertBuild. To run an application with administrative privileges after it is installed, right-click the package and click Run as administrator. If you use the Launchpad program to install the application, selecting Non-Administrator for user mode will install the application in the user's directory rather than Program Files.
