Run this program from the Start menu: click.
Alternatively, to run this program from Windows Explorer or the command line, navigate to the following directory and either double-click the BISMkApp icon or run BISMkApp.exe.
C:\Program Files\Micro Focus\extend x.x.x\AcuGT\bin
On 64-bit Windows when a 32-bit-only system is installed, replace Program Files with Program Files (x86).
When execution begins, you will see the following dialog box:
This dialog box has the following fields:
In this release, always contains localhost. Note that this program currently has to be run on the system that contains the IIS server.
Select the website on the server that will serve the new web application.
Enter the name of the web application that you wish created. For example, the default installation creates a web application named acubis10.
Note that, in this version of BISMkApp, the At Root checkbox is always disabled.
Enter the pathname of the physical directory that will contain the files that are served when the user issues requests against the Web Application Name.
For example, when BIS is installed in the default way and you request this page:
The requested content is served from:
This is because the BIS installer creates a physical directory named acubis10 in the default web tree, and copies the sample programs into this directory. The installer then creates a virtual root directory named acubis10, configures it so it runs a BIS application (see below) and points it at the previously created physical directory.
The content of this drop-down list depends on the version of Windows that you are running. For versions of IIS that support application pools, this drop-down contains a list of application pools that were found on the server. The name of the application pool will be suffixed with (32-bit) or (64-bit).
The checkboxes control how the web application is created.
This is the path to the BIS server program directory (the directory that contains BISISAPI.DLL). This field is preset to the directory where you last installed BIS. You can override this by pressing the Browse button and browsing to a new directory; by typing a directory name; or by typing the full path where BISISAPI.DLL can be found.
