The installation program provides multiple methods to install or uninstall IBM® Lotus® Quickr™ for WebSphere Portal, including using a graphical user interface, a console interface, or a response file.
The installation program provides the base for Lotus Quickr as well as any additional components, enabling you to implement components individually as you need them. The installation process is made up of two general steps:
- Installing the product files to the file system and setting appropriate operating system information (for example, the registry on a machine that is running Windows®)
- Performing a series of configuration tasks that result in a working system. These configuration tasks are invoked through a scripting interface and in some cases are automatically run by the install program. For more information, refer to Configuration program.
The console interface is the only installation method that is accessible to assistive technology.
Graphical user interface: qp85
Lotus Quickr includes a graphical installation program that gathers essential information for the installation, such as where to install, and then performs the installation accordingly. In addition, the installation program sets certain properties in the wkplc.properties
file for use during configuration.
Console interface: qp85
The Lotus Quickr installation program also provides a console interface, which enables you to perform an interactive installation or uninstallation from a command prompt.
Response file: qp85
Lotus Quickr can also be installed or uninstalled from a command line through the use of a response file. When installing or uninstalling with a response file, the installation program can retrieve information from the response file that would otherwise be entered by the user, such as the directory where Lotus Quickr is to be installed or the location of WebSphere® Application Server. Installing or uninstalling from a command line with a response file is well suited to situations where the use of a graphical installation program is impractical or not required or where you want to install or uninstall Lotus Quickr on multiple machines with a similar setup.
