Windows Attended Installation

This page details the initial steps for attended installations using the installer wizard.

Make sure you have completed the following before performing the steps on this page:

Step 1: Execute the Installation File


  • Double click on your installation file to launch the Installer Wizard.


  • Launch your installation file from the command line. This allows you to use command line properties to modify the installation. For example, the following would prevent InterSystems IRIS from starting immediately after installation:

    C:\Users\Public\Downloads\IRIS-<version_number>-win_x64.exe ISCSTARTIRIS=0 ISCSTARTLAUNCHER=0 
  • You can change the Installer Wizard’s language by changing the Windows language for non-Unicode programs setting.

Step 2: Begin Installation


  • Choose New Instance and click OK.

  • Use Next to continue to the next dialog box, Back to return to the previous dialog box, and Cancel to stop the installation.

  • Review the terms of the License Agreement. Click I accept the terms in the license agreement to confirm that you accept the license agreement.


  • Click on an existing instance to upgrade the instance.

Step 3: Name the Instance


  • Click Next to use the default name.


  • Give your instance a unique name, using only alphanumeric characters, underscores, and dashes.

  • The default name is IRIS (or, if other instances exist, IRISn, where n is the number of InterSystems IRIS instances already installed—the second instance will be IRIS1).

Step 4: Choose the Installation Directory


  • Click Next to use the default installation directory:



  • Click Change to specify a different destination directory. Review Installation Directory for details on where InterSystems IRIS can be installed.

  • If the specified directory doesn't exist, the Installer Wizard will automatically create it.

Step 5: Choose a Setup Type


  • Select the Development setup type and click Next to continue.

  • Continue reading the documentation for a Development setup type.
