IBM Cognos TM1 10.1 – The Installation
I’m going to talk through the installation of TM1 10.1.
- Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable Package
- Microsoft .NET 3.5 SP1 Framework
- Microsoft Chart Controls for Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5.
- Microsoft Excel
To kick of you’ll need either an installation CD or Archive. When downloading directly from IBM’s website you’ll be using a “.tar.gz” archive. This can be extracted with winZip/7Zip or WinRAR.
Within the Installation directory you should find the file called “issetup.exe”. Open “issetup.exe” It you are using a version of windows which has UAC (User Access Control) enabled (such as Windows 7) run the setup as an Administrator.
When selecting software features and components note that Cognos Insight and Performance Modeler are both not installed by default. You will need to tick these individually for them to be installed. Match your window to the image above to ensure they will be installed.
