Thank you Chris.

Yes the Windows 2008 issues are related to our network access / security.

Thank you for your notes about Windows 7 desktop installation / running: over the next month we will be setting up Archives Space on a Windows 7 machine and as we have questions, we will be sure to ask.

Thanks again for all of your help.  Tara

Hi Tara,

So, just to check, the issue you had on Windows 2008 server were related to your network?

On a Windows 7 desktop, the setup is pretty much the same. You'll need to have java installed and MySQL  for the database ( unless you're using a remote MySQL server, which in that case you'll need to make sure the firewall is open ) . If you're wanting to have it run as a service, I think most Windows folks have found deploying with Tomcat to be the best option....otherwise, you can just launch the application as needed.

Let me know if you have any questions...

best, chris.

Good morning.

We have been having some trouble running Archive Space on a Windows 2008 server.

Due to continuing problems within our networking environment, we are now investigating  the possibility of installing it on a local Windows 7 workstation.
Does anyone has experience with this? Has anyone done this?  If so do you have any tips on how to do the installation?

Thank you.
