A supported web browser is required for downloading the Launcher.

The Launcher is a software application that is installed on each client computer that logs in to the Metasys Server, SCT, or supervisory engine. The Launcher lets you access any Metasys server or supervisory engine on the building network, regardless of its software version. You use the Launcher to reach the log in screen of the Metasys Server, SCT, or network engine. For details, refer to Launcher Help (LIT-12011742).

Important: We strongly advise that you do not browse to the Metasys Site Management Portal UI, Metasys UI, Johnson Controls System Configuration Tool, or any website from a computer running a server class operating system. By default, Windows Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration is enabled on server class operating systems, and may block the Launcher download page from which you install the Launcher application for access to the Metasys system. In addition, accessing websites on the Metasys Server could potentially expose your server to malicious software, including ransomware. Alternatively, open the user interface from a computer that is running a Desktop operating system.
