Installing In Out Scheduler Web


Before installing In Out Scheduler Web the Standard software must be setup and verified to be working on the machine that will act as the web server. This is because the standard edition contains the needed data files to operate the software. The Standard edition also must be used to manage the data and configuration settings.

To install In Out Scheduler Web run the setup program on the machine that will act as the web server. This software can be run in standalone mode or as a service. If you want to run this software as an ISAPI dll under Windows IIS or other web server contact us.

Standalone Deployment

For standalone deployment simply run the InOutSchedulerWeb.exe program. This program contains its own web server so you don't need another web server like Microsoft's IIS. When the application is run, the following screen appears:

Web server

By default the web server communicates on port 8888. However the port can be changed to whatever you like on this screen. To change the port enter the new port number in the Port box and press the Update button. By clicking on the image of the globe, the default browser will be launched with the corresponding URL to test the application.

The standalone web server can be used to deploy a productive application. You can place the application on a server machine of yours and let it run on the desktop. The obvious disadvantage is that a user needs to logged in to keep the desktop open. This even works via remote desktop, while not being connected. For productive stand alone applications we recommend using service type applications.

Service Deployment

Running the In Out Scheduler Web application as a service has its benefits and disadvantages. The disadvantages are that there is no log screen or browser execute button. The main advantage is that the there is no requirement for logging on to the machine in order to run the application (like any other Windows service). A few steps have to be taken prior to running the application as a service. In particular, a separate application must be downloaded and it has to be installed as a service. To install In Out Scheduler Web as a service, using the windows command prompt, change to the directory where the application resides and type:

InOutSchedulerWebService –install

This will install it and the application will appear in the Services Applet. From there, it can be configured to run automatically or manually. Look for the service called InOut. There is no need to activate the "Interact with Desktop" under the properties of the service, and doing so will have no effect whatsoever.

In a similar way, if the need arises to uninstall the application, it can be done by typing:

InOutSchedulerWebService –uninstall

Before executing this command, be sure to stop your service.

Alternatively you can just create -install and -uninstall shortcuts.

Notes:


Running In Out Scheduler Web on your clients


To launch In Out Scheduler Web from a client browser simply enter its URL. For example, "http://127.0.0.1:8888" or "http://localhost:8888". Replace the "127.0.0.1" or "localhost" part with whatever the tcp-ip address of the machine running the In Out Scheduler web server is.
