1.16. Microsoft Components Required for Palisade 5.x Software Install

Disponible en español: Componentes de Microsoft necesarios para la instalación del Software de Palisade 5.x
Disponível em português: Componentes da Microsoft requeridos para a instalação do Software Palisade 5.x

Applies to:
All products, release 5.x
(If you have 6.x software, see Microsoft Components Required for Palisade 6.x Software Install.)

Are there any prerequisites for installing releases 5.x of Palisade software?

There are certain prerequisites, yes. Our installer checks for them and installs them if they are not present, so for an attended install you should be able to just run our installer and let it install what it needs. But if there are install problems, or especially if you're doing a scripted install, you may choose to install the following components yourself before running our installer.

You can find Microsoft Windows Installer and .NET at Microsoft's Download Center, but please download Visual C++ from our site because specific sub-versions are required.

(1) Microsoft Windows Installer 3.1 or later

(2) Microsoft .NET 2.0, 1.1, or both

(.NET 2.0 is already installed in Windows 7 and may be already installed in earlier Windows. For Windows 8 with Palisade 5.7 software, see Installing Palisade Software 5.7 or 6.0 in Windows 8.)

(3) Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable

(4) SQL is optional with @RISK and the DecisionTools Suite (all 5.x releases); it is not used with Evolver, NeuralTools, PrecisionTree, StatTools, or TopRank. If installing @RISK or the DecisionTools Suite, you may or may not want to install SQL, depending on how your users will use @RISK. Please see SQL—Do I Need to Install It? for more.
