Downloading Installer Files

After you download selected courses, the next step in the installation process is to download and unzip the installer files.

Note: If you previously downloaded a version of the content installer, ensure you have the latest version. In addition, you can click the CurrentXMLs within the EDS window to view the list of current files within the content installer. If your files are not up to date, you should download the current installer kit. If you have a current version of the content installer on a local drive, you can proceed to the next topic, Configuring the Install Kit.

  1. Click Download to launch your default FTP Client.
  2. Log in to the FTP site and tile the window with the open EDS window.
  3. In the eDelivery window, click Show Installer Files.
  4. In the search results pane, select the content installer kit (CIK Release *) and CurrentXMLs.

    Upon selection, the two zip files display in the FTP client window.

  5. Create a temporary folder on a local drive and copy the two installer files to that folder.

    Note: The Content Installer Kit (CIK RELEASE*.zip) is a very large file. Your download time is dependent on your bandwidth.

  6. Within the folder that you created on your local drive, open the Content Installer Kit (CIK *.zip) and extract the files to the temporary folder. Before extracting, make sure you select the option to use folder names.

    Tip: Before extracting the installer files, you may want to create an additional folder to extract the Installer files into. This will keep the zip files separate from the extracted files. For example, in the image below, the files were extracted into a new folder called CIK-Installation Root.

  7. Within the folder that you created on your local drive, open
  8. Select the option to overwrite files, and extract the files to the installer root folder you created in the previous step.
  9. You are now ready to add the downloaded courses to the install kit. Proceed to the next topic, Configuring the Install Kit.
