The server where the Engine will be installed must have IIS and ASP.NET installed. Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 is required. For the installation package to function properly on some later operating systems, "IIS 6 Management Compatibility" may also need to be installed. This may be a server on your network, it does not have to be a computer where the end users have physical access to it. The only other requirement is that this server will need direct access to the databases and files that the jobs will be operating on.
Installation Steps 1. Run StarfishEngineSetup.msi on the desired server.
2. No configuration is needed. The installation will automatically place the files in a new Virtual Directory (StarfishEngine) your IIS Inetpub directory (typically C:\Inetpub\wwwroot). It will also create a new Application Pool for use with the Virtual Directory. It is recommended to disable the "Fixed Intervals" Recycling option for this Application Pool in IIS.
3. Click Next and complete the installation. After the install, you can test to make sure it worked correctly by opening a browser to http://localhost/StarfishEngine, and you should get a window that looks like the one below. It may be necessary to specify the full path to the web service file, which would be http://localhost/StarfishEngine/StarfishService.asmx
3a. If the web service URL isn't working, open IIS to manually Locate your Web Service URL
