Install Reflection X on Windows

Reflection X is included as a component in Reflection X and Reflection Desktop for X.

The following applications are installed by default:

  • X Manager

    Provides complete support for connecting to X clients in standalone mode.

  • Reflection Workspace

    Provides access to VT terminal sessions. With Reflection Desktop for X, IBM terminal and printer support is also included.

  • Reflection FTP Client

    Supports file transfer using both FTP and SFTP protocols.

If you are planning on running Reflection X in domain mode, you will need to install additional features on the computers running in your domain. These features are not installed by default. For a summary of some typical installation configurations for domain mode, see Which Reflection X Features Should I install? For more detailed information, see Setting up Domain Components.

To install on Windows

  1. Log on using a Windows account with administrator privileges.

  2. Start the Setup program (Setup.exe). If you are installing from the download site, the following steps start this program:

    From the download site, click the Windows download link and run the download program.

    Select a location for the installer files, and then click Next. This extracts the files to the specified location and starts the Setup program.

  3. The installer checks your system for required software prerequisites. If these are not present, the installer installs these packages before running the product installation.

  4. To view and/or modify which features are installed, click the Feature Selection tab.

Installation log file

An installation log file is created by default, but this file is deleted if the installation succeeds. If your installation does not succeed, you can use the log file to troubleshoot. The log file is saved to your temp directory with a generated name that begins with atm. To open this folder, enter %tmp% in the Start menu's "Search programs and files" text box or in the path box of a Windows Explorer window.
