This server installation provides remote access to the Skillsoft Course Player (SCP), Skillsoft Mobile Player, Skillsoft Course Manager (SCM), Simulation Player, Legacy IT Player, e3 Player, Classic Player, Passive Player, and course content to web server-connected user workstations.
The setup automatically includes the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) v.1.4.2.
If you need to change any parameters in the installervalues.properties file (for example, to modify AICC and SCORM parameters), you must save the changes prior to running the Installer. The installervalues.properties is located at the root of the Installer kit. If you need to make edits and your kit is on CD, then you must copy the Installer kit to a hard drive and edit the file there. Then, run the Installer from your hard drive.
If you are running your content server on Windows 2003 Server Standard Edition, you must define some mime types for IIS 6.0. See Windows 2003 Server Configuration for more information about this procedure.
Run the installer.exe file located in the root directory of the Installer software provided to you by Skillsoft.

1. Choose Custom Installation.
2. Deselect all the installation options except for Install Skillsoft Content File.
3. Click Next to complete the installation.
4. Verify that you now have this file on your server: <content_dir>\Web\Content\Player\sp6content.xml.
5. Return to the beginning of this section to perform the course and software installation.
