Install the Stat Client

The user performing the installation or de-installation needs to have Administrator privileges due to enhanced security on the Windows® operating system.

Local installation

1
In the Stat® Installer, navigate to the Install section.
2
Click Install Stat Windows Client.
3
Click Next.
5
Click Next.
You can use the default location: C:\Program Files\Quest Software, or you can install in a different location by clicking Change and then specifying the location.
NOTE: FDCC regulations stipulate that only administrators be allowed to write to the Program Files folder. For this reason, the Stat installer creates an additional documents folder located in C:\ProgramData\Quest Software\Stat\6.3.0.
This folder is also where the user-editable file stat.ini is installed (unless you have additional security installed on your machine, in which case it is hidden).
7
Click Next.
Complete installs all of the Stat application components. Complete is recommended for the initial installation.
Custom allows you to choose from a list of optional components the ones you want to install. Custom is recommended on individual workstations where certain components might not be needed.
9
Click Next.
If you selected Custom, the next window has the User Guide pre-selected. The following components are deselected by default in a custom installation:
System Administrators Guide – If the user should have access to the System Administration Guide, select this option.
PS Object Mover Instructions (PeopleSoft users only) – The PS Object Mover instructions must be selected on at least one workstation in order to update the Stat object that archives PeopleSoft objects. These instructions are required in order for this object to operate. The instructions are loaded using the Update PS Object Mover utility available under the General Maintenance menu. Deselect on workstations where the user will not have the security to run these instructions.
Click Next to install the Stat shortcuts in the default Start menu folder, Quest Software/Stat 6.3.
Modify the folder name, and click Next to install the shortcuts into a different Start menu folder.
12
In the next window, click Install to begin the installation.
13
When prompted, click Finish to complete the installation.

Single Network installation

Stat® can be installed in one primary network location that users can access remotely.

1
Run the Stat Client install program at the designated single network location and select either the Complete installation option, or select the Custom install option. This will be referred to as your <STAT_HOME> location.
2
Configure stat.ini. See Edit the INI file for more information.
3
Copy stat.ini from C:\ProgramData\Quest Software\Stat\6.3.0 to the <STAT_HOME> location.

Configure the Stat database

The new Stat® database needs to be configured with basic data before the installation can be verified. For the purposes of an installation, Stat database configuration includes adding the new databases to the Stat INI file and updating the System table with client specific information including the license code. See Edit the INI file.
