Installation of Argent Commander

Argent Commander is designed to provide the simplest installation possible.

There are no .NET libraries or other dependencies required.

Argent Commander installs into IIS, creating the virtual folder, application pool and all the various options automatically for you.

No database or database setup is required to install Argent Commander.


Simply run SETUP.EXE and follow the setup wizard.

Total installation time is two to three minutes.

  1. Specify the license file — the license file is a file that is always named ARGSOFT_COMMANDER.LIC

    Do NOT rename this file.

    Please contact your Account Manager or an Argent representative on Instant Help if you need a license key.

  2. Specify the Argent XT and/or Argent AT main engine host or IP

    Argent Commander requires at least one of these product suites to be installed. Argent Commander can be installed with just Argent XT, just Argent AT — or both Argent XT and Argent AT specified.

  3. Specify the install path, the IIS website to install into, and the Argent XT/AT service account details.

    Note how the service account cannot be changed — Argent Commander reads the service information on the main engine that was specified, and ensures that Argent Commander uses the same service account information (for logon impersonation purposes)

  4. Note that IIS will temporarily be stopped on the server you are installing Argent Commander on.

    After Argent Commander completes installation, IIS will be automatically restarted, along with all IIS-related services that were set to “Automatic”.

  5. When it has completed, you’ll see this prompt:
