    Note: STAAD.Pro is compatible with Windows XP, Windows 2000, Windows Vista, andWindows 7 operating systems only! Please refer to the Requirements file for a complete listof compatible Windows operating systems and minimum system requirements.

    User Manual 1

  • 1.1.2 Windows Vista or Windows 7 Request to Run as AdministratorIf your computer is using either the Window Vista or the Windows 7 operating systems even if you are logged in as a user with administrative privileges certain programs mayrequire confirmation to be run with administrative privileges. By default a Windows Explorerprocess runs with standard user privileges, even if the login ID has full administrativeprivileges. To overcome this, the installer may request to run with administer privileges whenlaunched. Please provide administrator credentials (if requested) and accept this dialog beforeproceeding.

    1.2 Package InstallerIn order for the STAAD.Pro application to run, it needs a number of system requirementsknown as prerequisites, to be in place. To ensure that the necessary prerequisites are installedand of a suitable version, the STAAD.Pro installer is been bundled into a package installer.This means that you do not have to download the prerequisites separately.

    In order to prevent the packager becoming too large, the package includes two types ofprerequisite installation: a full installation or a bootstrap installation. The former includes theentire prerequisite installation, where as a bootstrap installer is only a small installation thatis used to identify if the prerequisite is present or not and, if not, it will download the fullinstallation and install it.

    Once the Package installer is initiated, it will follow sequentially the installations as listed onthe packager window, starting with the first prerequisite installation and finishing with theSTAAD.Pro installation. If any of the prerequisites are already installed and are an olderversion than required, they will automatically be updated. If they are of the same or morecurrent version, then they will be skipped.

    Refer to the window icons and messages for each item during the process for the action takefor each item:

    l Installations that have been installed will be marked with a green tick and displayedin blue text

    l Installations that have been skipped will be marked with a green tick to indicate thatit has been checked and the installation will be shown in gray text

    l Installations that have failed will be marked with a red cross. Details of possible errormessages are included in the Requirements document that can accessed from thepackage installer Window.

    Note: When opening the Windows Control Panel > Add Remove Programs (Programsand Features in Windows 7), the packager does not display, but all the individualinstallations that have been installed will be displayed and if required can be uninstalledseparately.
