Resolution

Below is an outline that can be followed to install Vista in the proper order. Each "*" denotes a software package followed by the associated files/programs that are included.

Depending on your specific application, some of the software may not be needed. For example, a Vista Classic network will not need LonMaker. Call Tech Support if you have any questions concerning the software needed for your application.

*Microsoft Windows 2000/XP (Microsoft)

*LonMaker (Echelon CD)
LNS Utilities:
Microsoft Visio, PCLTA-10/PCC-10/PCLTA-20/SLTA-10/PCNSI (only if using an Echelon LNS interface), Adobe Acrobat (if you don't already have it)

*Update LonMaker to 3.13 and LNS to 3.08.05 (TAC Extranet) lmw31.exe, lmw313U1.exe, LNS3SP8.EXE, LNSSP8U1.EXE

*HASP device driver utility (TAC Extranet)
h4_hinstall - MUST Execute from a Command Prompt! or...
hdd32.exe if using Windows Server 2003

*Privilege Licenser 2.01 - "taclicense201.exe" or 2.02 - "Privilege Windows XP crash hotfix" (TAC Extranet)

*.NET Framework 1.1 (Microsoft)

*TACVistaConfig1.2.0 (TAC Extranet)
.NET Framework 1.1 SP1, Microsoft SQL Server (MSDE)2000 SP4, MSXML 4.0, MDAC 2.8
(Reboot)

At this point you could be prompted to choose which type of Licensing to be used. Select which option is best for you, the Site License (Order Entry Department), 30 Day Demo (TAC Extranet), or Engineering dongle. This will write the appropriate license files to the Privilege License Server.

*Vista Server 4.X with WorkStation (TAC Extranet)
(Reboot)

*TAC ToolPack 4.X (TAC Extranet)

If you encounter any errors during the installation process, be sure to make a note of specific errors received so Technical Support can better troubleshoot your issue. A simple way to record errors are to capture a "screenshot" (Ctrl+PrintScnr). The screenshot can then be pasted (Ctrl+V) into Paint a text editor like wordpad for later reference.

Note: Beginning 2012, PSS will no longer support the Privilege License System. The Tamfs26 Server will be retired along with TAC License Server software. It would be wise to inform the customer of this important information to plan for future upgrade in the event that their site license has issues.
