ECMS - Manual Client Installation Steps - February 2021, EP3
This document explains how to install the ImageNow client version required to test ImageNow for the February, 2021, upgrade.
Installation Important Information
We have seen that Symantec EndPoint Protection protests the installation of the client. Though we dislike telling you to ignore such warnings you are safe in doing so for this application. It comes directly from the vendor and is not transmitted or hosted on any external system. We have no recourse to tell Symantec about this client (and often the identified "issue" is not due to a virus but rather to a low "reputation" score because the application is both new and not widely used).
The following are steps to install and configure the Perceptive Content Client vEP2 desktop client. The installation process is functionally identical to previous versions of the Client (even the dialog graphics are mostly unchanged), but some configuration steps may deviate (e.g. PEDS and connection profile configuration).
You can install the new client for testing purposes on a dedicated computer/laptop or inside a virtual machine using VM technology like VirtualBox, VMWare, Parallels, etc. The ECM/Imaging team cannot assist you with using VM technology. Please consult with your local desktop support individuals for assistance.
