Summary

A table of the Windows installer properties for the SLA Business Intellligence installer.

Tachyon Setup is the only supported method of installing a Tachyon Server. Installation using standalone MSI is not supported unless advised by 1E, which may be necessary in complex installations, using non-interactive (quiet) command-lines, and may require post-install configration steps.

Mandatory properties must be provided when installing using a command-line.

The installer file is: SLA.BI.Installer.msi
