Installing in GUI Mode

When you run the installer in GUI mode, the installer presents panels that you can use to choose the installation environment and customize your installation.

Procedure

  1. Run the TIBCOUniversalInstaller executable.
    • On Microsoft Windows: TIBCOUniversalInstaller.exe
    • On Unix: TIBCOUniversalInstaller.bin
    • On Mac OS: TIBCOUniversalInstaller-mac.command
  2. On the Welcome screen, click Next.
  3. Read through the license agreement, select I accept the terms of the license agreement if you agree to the terms, and click Next.
  4. Choose to create a new installation environment (TIBCO_HOME) and specify the directory and name for the new environment. Then click Next.
    Option Procedure
    Create a new TIBCO_HOME Specify properties:
    • Directory The directory into which the product is installed. The directory cannot be the same as the directory of an existing installation environment.

      The directory path cannot contain the following special characters:

      # $ % & * < > ? ` |

    • Name Identifies the installation environment. The name cannot contain the following special characters:

      " * / : < > ? \ |

    Use an existing TIBCO_HOME Select an existing installation environment from the drop-down menu.
    Important: If you are upgrading to the latest version of the software from an earlier version, it is good practice to install the latest version in a new installation environment. See Upgrading the SoftwareUpgrading the Software for details.
  5. On the Installation Profile Selection screen, select one or more of the pre-configured profiles, or click Customize Installation, and explicitly select the components you want to install. By default, the pre-configured profiles include the Oracle Elliptic Curve Cryptography Library (ECCL) component. The software requires the ECCL library only if you want to use the ECC ciphers with SSL/TLS configurations. Without the ECCL library, the SSL/TLS functionality is still available, but without the ECC ciphers.

    • To continue with the default selection, click Next.
    • If you do not plan to use the ECC ciphers, you do not need to download and install the ECCL library. Select the checkbox Customize Installation and clear the checkbox for the Oracle Elliptic Curve Cryptography Library component. Then click Next.
  6. On Linux, the design feature requires Eclipse LGPL assembly to be available in the temporary directory prior to installation. See Hardware and Software Requirements for details. The installer prompts the LGPL License Agreement screen for the Eclipse LGPL assembly. Read through the license agreement, select I accept the terms of the license agreement if you agree to the terms, and click Next to proceed.
  7. On the LGPL Assembly Download screen, select one of the following download options and click Next.
    • Download Gnome Binding assembly from TIBCO: Select this option if you are connected to the Internet or do not want to use a previously downloaded assembly. The assembly is automatically downloaded and stored in the assemblies subdirectory of the directory where you extracted the installer.
    • Provide the location for the assembly previously downloaded from TIBCO: Select this option if you are not connected to the Internet. Click Browse to navigate to the directory where the previously downloaded LGPL assembly is stored. Select the directory, and click Open.
  8. Note: Skip this step if the Oracle Elliptic Curve Cryptography Library component was not selected in the Installation Profile Selection screen.
    If you choose to install the Oracle Elliptic Curve Cryptography Library component, the design feature requires the Sunec LGPL assembly to be available in the temporary directory prior to installation. See Hardware and Software Requirements for details. The installer prompts the LGPL License Agreement screen for the Sunec LGPL assembly. To download the Oracle Elliptic Curve Cryptography Library, select I accept the terms of the license agreement, and click Next. If you do not want to download the Oracle Elliptic Curve Cryptography Library, click Cancel to exit.
  9. On the LGPL Assembly Download screen, select one of the following download options and click Next.
    • Download Oracle Elliptic Curve Cryptography Library assembly from TIBCO: Select this option if you are connected to the Internet or do not want to use a previously downloaded assembly. The assembly is automatically downloaded and stored in the assemblies subdirectory of the directory where you extracted the installer.
    • Provide the location for the assembly previously downloaded from TIBCO: Select this option if you are not connected to the Internet. Click Browse to navigate to the directory where the previously downloaded LGPL assembly is stored. Select the directory, and click Open.
  10. On the Pre-Install Summary screen, verify the list of products and components selected for installation, and click Install.
  11. Verify the Post-Install Summary, click Finish to complete the installation process, and close the installer window.
