NCache 4.4 - Online Documentation

Interactive Windows Installation

Another way by which you can install NCache is to double click on NCache.clr20.msi from the Windows Explorer. This launches the interactive Windows Installer. Below are the screen snapshots of the installation process.
  • After you click on NCache.clr20.msi, you will see the following as your first screen. Click Next.
  • The next screen asks you to accept the license agreement. By clicking I accept the terms in the License Agreement, you are making a legal commitment to abide by the Alachisoft Software License Agreement for NCache. You cannot proceed without accepting the license agreement.
  • The next screen is an important one. It asks you to choose the edition of NCache which you want to install. The basic rule of thumb is that except for your developer work stations where you have Visual Studio 2005, 2008 or 2010 installed, you should install NCache Enterprise everywhere else. Click Next.
  • Evaluation Information dialog appears which asks you for the installation key. This is the key which you have received from Alachisoft. If you do not have an Installation key, please click on Get Installation Key button which takes you to Alachisoft web site to register and obtain an Installation key.
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 on Alachisoft website where you can register and obtain an Installation key. You have two options here. If you’re already registered, just enter your email address and an Installation key will be emailed to you. Otherwise, register by specifying information and an Installation key will be emailed to you.
  • In User Information dialog, you need to enter your name, company name, and email address. This information will be displayed as part of NCache to indicate your identity. Click Next.
  • 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. Click Next.
  • In the next dialog box, you can 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 you keep everything as default. After selection, click Next.
  • You will then be prompted to start installation process by pressing the Install button.
  • Installation process will begin.
  • After everything is done, a final screen appears indicating a successful finish of NCache installation.
  • Click Finish to exit the installation setup.
