Installing Windchill RV&S Client From DVD
On Windows and on certain Linux systems, the Windchill RV&S DVD wizard starts automatically. To start the wizard manually, open index.html in the root.
If you do not want to use the wizard, you can run mksclient.exe or mksclient.bin, which are located on the Windchill RV&S DVD in the platform-specific /installs/client directory.
Installation allows you to install the Windchill RV&S server, Windchill RV&S client, FLEXnet license server, and Windchill RV&S Agent.
For Windows, run or save the Windchill RV&S client installation program (mksclient.exe).
