BIS is self-registering. Registration is performed by the XBIS.EXE program, which can be found in the installation directory (normally C:\Program Files\Micro Focus\extend x.x.x\AcuGT\bin ). Registration includes these three steps:
The server registration syntax is:
The registration options are detailed below:
|/REGSERVER||Registers the Service Engine. Also registers the runtime system located in the same directory as XBIS.EXE.|
|/UNREGSERVER||Unregisters the BIS Service Engine and the runtime system.|
|/SHOWSERVER||Displays a dialog box that shows the location of the currently registered BIS and Service Engine.|
The server registration option has three additional variations:
|/REGSERVERQ||Quietly registers the BIS Service Engine and the runtime system located in the same directory as XBIS.EXE. No confirmation dialog box is displayed .|
|/REGSERVERO||Only registers the BIS Service Engine. The runtime system registration remains unchanged. This is useful if you want to install the runtime system in a directory separate from the BIS Service Engine.|
|/REGSERVERQO||Combines the above two options.|
The /REGSERVER and /REGSERVERQ options have an additional optional parameter: the pathname of the runtime system or the directory containing the runtime system. It is specified as in these examples:
1. /REGSERVER:pathname 2. /REGSERVERQ:pathname 3. /REGSERVER:directory 4. /REGSERVERQ:directory
If the pathname or directory is specified, the specified file or the server in the specified directory is registered and BIS does not search for the runtime system in the path.
If a directory is specified, it may end with a trailing backslash to differentiate it from a filename. Also note that if the specified name contains spaces, it must be surrounded by single or double quotes.
