To install iBaan ERP Windows for


Windows installer
The installation of BW is carried out through the Baan Common Installer (BCI).
For a custom installation in BCI, the following procedure applies.
1

After selecting the client products in BCI, the individual installers of the
products are called. For BW, the Microsoft Windows Installer (MSI) is
started.

This dialog box will automatically disappear. If Windows 2000 is installed,


or if MSI has been previously installed, the MSI dialog box shown in Step 4
will appear next. Otherwise, MSI will be installed.
NOTE

There can only be one MSI-based BW on one system. If a previous


MSI-based BW is present on the system, it needs to be uninstalled prior to
installation of the new version.

NOTE

However, an MSI-based BW can coexist with traditional InstallShield-based


BW installations.
