(v13) InstallAnywhere procedure Linux and macOS

This page applies to Harlequin v13.1r0 and later; and to Harlequin Core but not Harlequin MultiRIP.

This section details the Linux and macOS InstallAnywhere procedure.

1.      Follow the InstallAnywhere screen instructions. Each screen of the install procedure is labeled at the left side of the window.

2.      Select Next to move onto the next screen and Previous display a previous screen.

3.      If the “License Agreement” screen is displayed (Evaluation versions only) you must scroll to the bottom of the text and, if you agree to be bound by its contents, select I accept the terms of the license agreement.

4.      You are presented with the following options (LDK-enabled versions only):

  • HHR and LDK together - Use this option to install both the HHR and the LDK.
  • HHR only (will use a remote LDK) - Use this option to install only the HHR components. Licensing is performed using an LDK installed on another machine on the network.
  • LDK only (for use with remote HHR) - Use this option to install only the Sentinel LDK components. In this case the Host Renderer is installed on another machine on the network and this machine is providing the licensing capabilities.

5.      Use the “Choose Install Folder” screen to select an installation folder. If you wish, you can choose a different install folder from the default. Click Choose... and navigate to the required folder. If at any time you wish to restore the default location, click Restore Default Folder.

6.      Use the “Choose Link folder” screen to choose if you want to create any links and where you would like to create those links. The links provide quick access to useful files such as the README.txt and associated documentation. If you don't want to create any links, select Don't create links.

7.      The “Pre-Installation Summary” screen allows you to examine your installation choices. If required, use the Previous button to return to earlier screens and modify your selections, otherwise click Install to proceed with the installation.

8.      If you selected the LDK at step 4 and are running the installation from a normal user account, then you are prompted to enter an administrator password to enable installation of the LDK runtime.

9.      During the installation, an LDK Product Key dialog displays (LDK-enabled versions only). If you have previously entered a product key and it is still valid, select Skip this step and your RIP runs without the need to re-enter the key. If you have a new product key, select Enter Product Key Now, enter the key, and click Activate.

10.  The “Install Complete” screen indicates that the installer has finished. If any errors have occurred a message displays. Click Done to exit from the installer. You can view the details of the errors by opening the Harlequin_Host_Renderer_SDK_For_XXXX_X.XrX_InstallLog.log file, which is located in the installation folder.
