Installation of Wonderware Intouch SCADA Step by Step

When you start the install process, if you don’t have Microsoft .NET Framework installed, the InTouch installation process installs it for you. After Microsoft .NET Framework is installed, InTouch is installed using the process described below. 

To install Wonderware InTouch SCADA

  1. Insert the InTouch CD into the CD-ROM drive. Installation will start automatically.
Note At any time during the installation, you can click Back to return to previous dialog boxes in order to modify your selections. Also, you can stop the installation routine at any time by clicking Cancel. If you do so, you will be prompted to resume installation or exit completely.
  1. In the Welcome dialog box (see image below), click Next.
  1. In the License
    dialog box (see image below), select I accept the License Agreement and click Next to continue. You can also print the License Agreement by clicking Print License.
  1. In the Select Features and Destination Folder dialog box (see image below), select the components you want to install. By default, only InTouch Runtime and InTouch Development are selected for installation.
    Click Browse to change the location where InTouch will be installed, click Disk Cost to determine if you have enough disk space on the selected installed path or click Reset to restore default selections. Click Next to continue. Also, click Installation Guide to open the installation instructions.
