Software AG strongly recommends that you create an installation image of your existing Software products and store the image on your internal network. You should create an image for each operating system on which you plan to run the installation (for example, 32-bit, 64-bit, or both). This will help you reduce WAN traffic and speed up installation and will ensure consistency across installations over time, since the Software AG Installer provides only the latest release of each product.
Close (stop) all open applications, especially those applications interacting with or depending on your Adabas databases. This includes Natural, Adabas Manager, the Adabas DBA Workbench, and prior releases of any other Adabas products. To be on the safe side, also shut down all Software AG services.
For some Software AG products, the Software AG Uninstaller will not be able to remove key files that are locked by the operating system if the associated Software AG products are not shut down.
Disable any antivirus software.
Ensure the target computer is connected to the network.
