This document explains how to install the ImageNow client version required to test ImageNow for the August, 2019, upgrade.

[Doc 8386 is unavailable at this time.]

Installation Important Information

We have seen that Symantec EndPoint Protection protests the installation of the client. Though we dislike telling you to ignore such warnings but you are safe in doing so for this application. It comes directly from the vendor and is not transmitted or hosted on any external system. We have no recourse to tell Symantec about this client (and often the identified "issue" is not due to a virus but rather to a low "reputation" score because the application is both new and not widely used).

The following are steps to install and configure the ImageNow v7.2.3 Build 474 desktop client. The installation process is functionally identical to previous versions of ImageNow, but some configuration steps may deviate (e.g. PEDS and connection profile configuration).

You can install the new client for testing purposes on a dedicated computer/laptop or inside a virtual machine using VM technology like VirtualBox, VMWare, Parallels, etc. The ECM/Imaging team cannot assist you with using VM technology. Please consult with your local desktop support individuals for assistance.
