Installing and managing software components

Installing software

In the Software Manager:

  1. From the Software menu, select Install New.

  2. Select the current host, then:

    To install from another host, see the instructions in ``Installing from remote source machines''.

    NOTE: The CD-ROM from which you install the SCO OpenServer system also contains many other SCO OpenServer products. Some of these products must be purchased, installed, licensed, and registered separately.

  3. Select the software items that you want from the list of available software, and click on Install.

    The list of available software does not include individual files. To restore a damaged or missing file, see customextract(ADM).

  4. To license the product during installation, enter the license number and code from the SCO OpenServer product license when prompted. If you defer licensing at this time, see ``Licensing products'' for instructions on licensing the product. (Note that you cannot defer licensing the operating system.)

To install software on a machine across the network, from the Host menu, select Open Host. Then, type in the host name, or click on Select to choose from a list of hosts. (Sort the list by host name or IP address by toggling the Sort by buttons, or type one or more characters into the ``Filter'' field to search for a host name.) Then, install the software as you would locally.
