Windows install instructions

Detailed Instructions

The setup wizard is so easy that you do not really need these instructions. Points 2, 3 and 9 are helpful.

Instructions

  1. Run the installer.
  2. Close all applications and windows.
    • I have installed Iguana many times without closing everything, no problems, no reboots.
    • I usually close all Iguana browser tabs.
  3. If you have a previous iguana 5 installation:
    • Uninstall previous Iguana installation dialog
      if you do not accept the install will fail.
    • Start the uninstall wizard click the Uninstall button.
    • Close the uninstall wizard click the Finish button.
  4. Accept the Iguana license agreement and click the Next button.
  5. Choose additional features:
    • Accept defaults (usually).
    • Click the Next button.
  6. Choose the Iguana install location:
    • Change directory if you wish (usually choose default).
    • Click the Next button.

      Note: Iguana can run from any location (with write permission), but usually you will want to accept the default (being the windows program files directory).

  7. Choose the Chameleon install location:
    • Change directory if you wish (usually choose default).
    • Click the Next button.
  8. Desktop and Menu Shortcuts:
    • Select the options you want (usually choose default).
    • Click the Next button.
  9. IMPORTANT – If you have a previous iguana 5 installation.
    • Iguana configuration files already exist in <install dir>. Use these files?
      • Click the Yes button to keep your settings.
      • Click the No button to do a fresh empty install. If you click No the old configuration files will be saved in <install dir>\oldconfig\
  10. If you are installing for the first time or choose not to keep your settings, you can:
    • Choose an install directory (usually choose default).
    • Choose a port number for the Iguana Server (usually choose default).
  11. Complete the setup click the Finish button.
