 Installing TM1 9.5

  3. Open the setup file ‘setup.exe’
  4. Select your language
  5. Click ok to the upgrade notice (Stating TM1 9.4 onwards is now Unicode and servers are no longer backward compatible)
  6. Agree to the terms and conditions then press next to proceed.
  7. Select the Desired Product Set from the List.
    1. TM1 Perspectives is the ‘client only’ install
    2. TM1 is the Server & Client by not TM1Web or Contributor
  1. Click ok to the notification about ‘.net’ framework
  2. Select the standard installation option and click ‘Next’
  3. Leave the Port Settings as Default and click ‘Next’
  4. If this is a Production Installation enter a Domain Account with Local Administrator access if this is running on a normal computer put in a Local Administrator Account. Click next to proceed.
  5. Click ‘next’ to use the default TM1Web Directory, If your IIS uses a different directory then you should change this setting.

To verify the installation:

  1. Open Architect (Or Perspectives) from the Start Menu
    1. Start > IBM Cognos > TM1 > Architect

  3. You should now be logged into the Local Server and can see cubes and dimensions.

Testing TM1 Web
