Installing Data Synchronisation Studio & Ouvvi with the Easy All in One Installer

We have a new installer available for preview that installs the pre-requisites for Ouvvi alongside Data Sync so that the Ouvvi installation process is but a few clicks. This means you can get the most out of the software by using Ouvvi and Data Sync together, rather than missing out on all the amazing features Ouvvi has to offer.

To download go to the download page and download the version available under Preview.

Version to Download

This installer is for a quick easy start that accepts the default settings. If you want custom settings then please follow the previous install method, make sure to uncheck the checkboxes for the pre-requisites and press Next to continue.

Pre-requisties Installation

When you run the installer, if you do not already have SQL Express and IIS installed then these will appear as pre-requisites that need to be installed before continuing.

The installer will then download SQL Express and you will need to run through the SQL Server Installer.

SQL Server Install

When running through the SQL Installer please keep all the settings to the default configuration, otherwise it will break your default Ouvvi install. You can change the details later on if you need to.

Read through the license agreement for SQL Express and when you are happy accept the terms, then click Next and keep clicking Next until the install is complete.
