BTS Software Installation and Uninstall

Installation

Neware BTS software can be found on the included CD or download from our official web site. Under each directory, there may be three items listed, one is vcredist_86 folder which is the C++ runtime, another one BTSServer.msi or BTSClient.msi which is the core software package, the third one is setup.exe which is an installation sequence.

Installation Procedures

  • Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 runtime is required to run Neware BTS software.
  • BTS Server will register two services - btsserver and mysql - onto the host computer.
  • One computer can function as both BTS server and BTS client.
  • You can deploy as many BTS clients in your LAN as you want.

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Libraries

Runtime provided is X86 based, but it is compatible with an X64 based system. There is no need to reinstall an X86 version if your C++ runtime is X64.

After C++ runtime is installed, you can continue to install the BTS server or client. For both BTSServer and BTSClient, we suggest a non-system drive for the installation folders.
