While installing PTC MKS Toolkit Interoperability Products can be as simple as inserting the product CD, or running the self-extracting executable and following the instructions on the dialogs that appear, there are areas that can benefit from additional explanation. Besides the standard installation procedures for PTC MKS Toolkit, and PTC X/Server, there are two special types of installations: Silent installation and Administrative installation. This page and the others discussed below provide detailed instructions on performing all these types of installations.
Standard InstallationWhile the standard PTC MKS Toolkit Interoperability Product installation is often straight-forward, some parts of the installation procedure can benefit from further explanation. Click the appropriate link below for a detailed description of the procedure.
It is also possible to perform what is known as a silent installation. Such an installation goes on in the background without any input from the user. For further instructions on implementing a silent installation, please contact PTC MKS Toolkit Customer Support (Phone: +1-800-477-6435; Log a case:https://support.ptc.com).
An administrative installation is designed for use in situations where a company has multiple licenses for installing PTC MKS Toolkit Interoperability Products. Since all installations for this company will often use the same Product Key, it is useful to have this information entered only once and then have it appear automatically for each individual installation.
