Business Information Server is installed as part of the extend® installation. On the Please select the extend (R) products you with to install page, check the Business Information Server for extend checkbox. The ACUCOBOL-GT Runtime COBOL Virtual Machine™ is also required.

During the installation, a Logon Information page displays. This is the user account under which the Business Information Server runs. This account must have sufficient privileges to access the data files for the COBOL program. If you leave the User Name and Password blank, the Business Information Server runs as the user who is currently logged in. If no one is logged in, Business Information Server does not function. Therefore, it is highly desirable to create a user account specifically for the Business Information Server, especially in a production environment. (See Logon Information for more information.)
