  1. You can install On-Premise Console for Windows using the installer, which you can download here.
  2. Save the installer to the device you will be using the On-Premise Console on.
  3. Run the installer:
    • Select Destination Location: if desired, you can choose alternative location(s) for the Console and the Database to be installed. To change the locations, click Browse and select the new location, then click Ok.
    • Shortcut on your desktop: choose whether or not a shortcut to the Console is created on your desktop. To disable, un-check the box.
