This article provides step-by-step instructions on using the Inedo Hub to install an Inedo product.

Step 2: Install the Inedo Hub

Now that you have downloaded the Inedo Hub you will need to install it by running the InedoHubInstaller.exe file you downloaded.

You may get a security warning message depending on your Windows UAC Settings. Simply click "Run" after verifying that the publisher of the file is INEDO, LLC.

After the Inedo Hub installer downloads all necessary files to install itself, you will see the main screen of the Inedo Hub.

Step 3: Install a Product with the Inedo Hub

Any version of an Inedo product can be installed from the main screen of the Inedo Hub (pictured above). For the purposes of this tutorial, we will install ProGet via the Inedo Hub, but the instructions are identical for any Inedo product.

Select the version of the product you want to install by clicking on the version drop-down menu, followed by the "Install" button.

ProGet Installation Options

SettingDescription
SQL ServerChoose between installing Inedo's SQL Server Instance or using an already installed instance on your server. Note: if you select the option to install Inedo's SQL server while you already have Microsoft SQL installed, the installer will simply check for updates to your existing server and install them if needed. It will then proceed to add the INEDO instance to the server.
Database NameThe name of the database that will be installed for your Inedo Product.
HostingChoose between using Inedo's integrated Web Server or configuring your Inedo product for use with Microsoft IIS.
Target DirectoryThe install path for your Inedo product. The default path is C:\Program Files\«Inedo-product» but it can be changed to match your desired location.

Once your Inedo product is set up to match your desired configuration, click "Install".

The Inedo Hub will now automatically download and install your desired Inedo product. Once the installation is complete, you'll be returned to the home screen where your product will now display as Installed.
