    Internet Connection

    The Installer package attempts to install any missing prerequisites prior to installing STAAD.Pro.

    STAAD.Pro 7 Installation Guide

  • In order for the STAAD.Pro application to run, it needs a number of system requirements known asprerequisites, to be in place. To ensure that the necessary prerequisites are installed and of a suitableversion, the STAAD.Pro installer is been bundled into a package installer. This means that you do nothave to download the prerequisites separately.In order to prevent the packager becoming too large, the package includes two types of prerequisiteinstallation: a full installation or a bootstrap installation. The former includes the entire prerequisiteinstallation, where as a bootstrap installer is only a small installation that is used to identify if theprerequisite is present or not and, if not, it will download the full installation and install it.Once the Package installer is initiated, it will follow sequentially the installations as listed on thepackager window, starting with the first prerequisite installation and finishing with the STAAD.Proinstallation. If any of the prerequisites are already installed and are an older version than required, theywill automatically be updated. If they are of the same or more current version, then they will be skipped.Refer to the window icons and messages for each item during the process for the action take for eachitem: Installations that have been installed will be marked with a green tick and displayed in blue text. Installations that have been skipped will be marked with a green tick to indicate that it has been

    checked and the installation will be shown in gray text. Installations that have failed will be marked with a red cross. Details of possible error messages are

    included in the Requirements document that can accessed from the package installer Window.Note: When opening the Windows Control Panel > Programs and Features (Add Remove Programsin Windows XP), the packager does not display, but all the individual installations that have beeninstalled will be displayed and if required can be uninstalled separately.Additionally, if one or more of the installations require a system reboot, this will be suppressed until allthe installations have taken place.
