Alachisoft NCache 4.1 - Online Documentation

Interactive Windows Installer

Another way you can install NCache is to double click on "NCache.clr20.msi" from the Windows Explorer. This launches the interactive Windows Installer. Following are the screen snapshots of installation process.
  1. After you click on NCache.clr20.msi, you see the following as your first screen.
  2. The next screen is about license agreement. By checking "I accept the license agreement", you are making a legal commitment to abide by the Alachisoft Software License Agreement for NCache. You cannot proceed without accepting this.
  3. The next screen is quite important. It asks you to select which edition of NCache you want to install. While installing NCache Enterprise edition you do not necessarily need to have visual studio, whereas, if you are installing NCache developer edition then visual studio (2003/ 2005/ 2008) should also be installed.
  4. The next thing is to provide the Installation Key. This is the key you have received from Alachisoft. If you do not have INSTALL KEY, then click on "Get Installation Key" button which takes you to Alachisoft web site to register and obtain an INSTALL KEY.
    NOTE: Please note that even when you have purchased NCache and have a license key, you must provide the INSTALL KEY here (and not the purchased license key). You'll get an opportunity later to specify your purchased license key when you activate your licenses.
    Below is the screen showing the page of Alachisoft website where you can register and obtain an INSTALL KEY. You will have two options here. If you're already registered, just enter your email address and an INSTALL KEY will be emailed to you. Otherwise, register by specifying information and an INSTALL KEY will be emailed to you.
  5. Below is a page where you have to enter your name, company name, and email address. This information will be displayed as part of NCache to indicate your identity.
  6. By default, NCache is installed in "C:\program files\NCache" folder. However, if you want to change this location, you can specify a different one below.
  7. Below, you see all the components that will be installed automatically. You can unselect some of the components if you wish. But, it is strongly recommended that keep everything as default.
  8. At this stage of installation, the install program asks you, whether you want it to automatically configure the permissions for NCache counters to be viewed in Perfmon remotely or you want ASPNET user-id to have the permission to write to the event log. Both of are important unless you have a specific security reason, select YES here.
  9. After completing step by step process, you will see final screen indicating successful installation of NCache.
