You can use an Internet browser to download the Launcher software that the SMP UI requires. To do so, enter its URL in the address field using this format:

http://<Metasys Server or engine computer name>/metasys

One of the following Launcher Download screens appears (Figure 1).

Figure 1. Windows Launcher Download

At Release 10.0 or later, the Launcher Download screen provides one choice (Full Launcher Installer) and at Release 9.0.7, the Launcher Download screen provides two choices (Full Launcher Installer and Single Site Connection), but the Single Site Connection is no longer active.

When you click Full Launcher Installer for a network engine at Release 9.0.7 or later, the browser routes you to the public Launcher download website. Refer to that website for instructions on how to download the Launcher installation file to a location on your computer. When complete, run the Launcher installation. For details, refer to the Launcher Installation Guide (LIT-12011783).

When you click Full Launcher Installer for a Metasys Server at Release 10.0 or later, a security warning screen may appear (Figure 2). This screen gives you the option to Run or Save the Launcher installation file.
