Installing ControlPoint Files
It is recommended that you temporarily disable virus checkers on all Web front end servers in the farm as they can slow the solution deployment enough to trigger timeout errors.
To install ControlPoint Files:
REMINDER: If UAC enabled on your server, you may have to "Run as Administrator."
1. Unzip the downloaded zip file then launch the installer (Metalogix ControlPoint Installer.exe).
NOTE: Make sure you keep the entire downloaded folder intact as there are files that are required by the installer.
A splash screen displays, followed by the ControlPoint Installer Welcome screen.
2. Click Install ControlPoint.
The License Agreement dialog displays.
3. Read the license agreement. Click I accept the terms of the license agreement, then click [Next].
4. Click Install ControlPoint On-premises.
5. When the Metalogix ControlPoint InstallShield Welcome dialog displays, click [Next].
The InstallShield Wizard specifies a default install directory (C:\Program Files\Metalogix\ControlPoint), but you can click [BROWSE] and select a different one.
NOTE: This directory is where the installer will place the files needed to complete the installation. If you choose to change the default directory, you should not use the SharePoint hive.
6. Click [Install].
The installer checks for ControlPoint Components. Note that, for a first time installation, only Fetching ControlPoint Configuration Data will display a check mark. All other options will display a right-pointing arrow.
The Configuration Wizard installs the ControlPoint files to the specified Destination Folder. When completed, a pop-up displays asking whether you want to configure ControlPoint.
NOTE: If you want to configure the ControlPoint application at a later time, click [No]. You can launch the ControlPoint Configuration Wizard from the Start menu or a Desktop shortcut.
7. Click [Finish].
It is strongly recommended that you perform a pre-installation validation check before Configuring the ControlPoint Application and Deploying SharePoint Solutions.
