How do I manually configure the Prerequisites and Dependencies for the Carousel Server software?

Applies to

  • Carousel 6.6+

Answer

Manually installing the Carousel Server software on a Windows system is a very involved process because systems are flexible and IT requirements vary. Therefore, it is really impossible for us to give a casual computer user all of the information needed to install Carousel successfully in every environment.

This article only covers manual installation for Windows Server 2012 R2, if you are using another operating system, please use this as a general overview and not a step-by-step guide.

This process is for advanced users only.

    1. Run all Windows Updates.
    2. Open the Server Manager from the Windows taskbar.
    3. From the Server Manager Dashboard Quick Start, choose Add roles and features under Configure this local server.
    4. Click Next > until you are at Server Roles.
    5. Check Web Server (IIS).
    6. When prompted, click Add Features.
    7. Click Next > until you are at Role Services under Web Server Role (IIS).
    8. In the right-pane, under Web Server, expand Application Development.
    9. Check ASP.NET 3.5.
    10. When prompted, click Add Features.

    12. When prompted, click Add Features.
