Troubleshoot ADONIS NP Installation Issues#

Installation Problems

If you encounter a problem upon installing ADONIS NP, follow these steps:

  1. Check if the minmal Hardware/Software Requirements are met.

  2. Open the Windows Task Manager to check if all instances of ADONIS NP are closed. Do not run the setup until ADONIS NP and all associated program components are closed.

  3. Make sure you do have the latest version of ADONIS NP available to you. Check the installation medium for the setup client - the name of this file will contain the version number. The version this manual is written for is 11.0. If you are not sure, whether the available version is up to date or not, please contact the ADONIS NP consultant of your company.

  4. Look at the installation folders of ADONIS NP - each version should have its own folder. When updating ADONIS NP, create a new installation folder for the new version to be stored at. Do not overwrite older versions, as this might cause conflicts.

  5. Check if the user running the setup does have the necessary user rights. This includes write access to the target directory of the installation.
