Home > Vantage Point Server > Installation


We provide both a 32-bit and a 64-bit installer. The 32-bit installer will run on any computer running a 32-bit version of Windows and on most computers running a 64-bit version of Windows. The 64-bit installer will only run on computers running a 64-bit version of Windows. To check what type of Windows you are running, go to Control Panel -> System and Security -> System and check System Type in the System section.

If you are installing a second Vantage Point Server on your network, you should not install it on the same machine as the first one.

From the install folder, run VantagePointServer_Setup.exe or VantagePointServer_Setup64.exe.
