Altova MobileTogether Server 

Windows Server Core is a minimal Windows installation that does not use a number of GUI features. You can install MobileTogether Server on a Windows Server Core machine as follows:


1.Download the MobileTogether Server installer executable from the Altova website. This file is named MobileTogetherServer_7.3.exe. Make sure to choose the executable matching your server platform (32-bit or 64-bit).

2.On a standard Windows machine (not the Windows Server Core machine), run the command MobileTogetherServer_7.3.exe /u. This unpacks the .msi file to the same folder as the installer executable.

3.Copy the unpacked .msi file to the Windows Server Core machine.

4.If you are updating an earlier version of MobileTogether Server, shut down MobileTogether Server before carrying out the next step.

5.Use the .msi file for the installation by running the command msiexec /i MobileTogetherServer.msi. This starts the installation on Windows Server Core.



Important: Keep the MSI file!

Note the following points:


Keep the extracted .msi file in a safe place. You will need it later to uninstall, repair, or modify your installation.

If you want to rename the MSI file, do this before you install MobileTogether Server.

The MSI filename is stored in the registry. You can update its name here if the filename has changed.
