Using the Graphical Installation Wizard

This section explains how to use the graphical installer of the Denodo Platform.

To install the Denodo Platform on a host without graphical environment, jump to the next section (Using the Command Line Installer).

To do an unattended installation, see the section Unattended Installation of the Denodo Platform.


We recommend installing all the modules of the Denodo Platform even if right now, you do not plan on using all of them. That is because the installer cannot add modules to an existing installation. If in the future, you want to use a module that is not installed, you would have to install and configure the Denodo Platform again.

After downloading the installer, decompress it and launch it by doing the following:

  • On Windows, go to the directory denodo-install-8.0, right-click install.exe and click Run as administrator. If the Windows User Account Control is enabled, you will see a dialog like the following, in which you have the enter credentials of an administrator user.

  • On Linux, execute the following:

    cd denodo-install-8.0
    chmod +x

The wizard will guide you through the installation steps.

Step 1

The wizard will display the product licensing conditions. Read them carefully and if you accept them, select I accept the terms of this license and click Next.

Step 2

Select an installation mode:

  1. Default Installation: recommended for most users. You can select the modules you want to install and they will be installed with their default configuration values.

    With the default installation, the Denodo servers will listen for incoming connections on the default ports. See the list ports in the appendix Default Ports Used by the Denodo Platform Modules.

  2. Custom Installation: recommended for advanced users. You will be able to set the values of several configuration parameters such as the ports where the Denodo Platform servers will listen for incoming connections.

Step 2: selecting the installation method

Step 2: selecting the installation method

Enter the Installation path where the Denodo Platform will be installed.


  • The installation path must not contain spaces (e.g. C:\Denodo\Denodo Platform 8.0 is invalid). If it contains spaces, the connection to some parallel processing databases may fail.

  • The Denodo Platform writes data in the directory where is installed so the user account that launches the Denodo servers needs to have write privileges of this directory.

  • If installing on Windows, the installation path cannot include “junctions” (Junction Points - Microsoft Developer Network).


If you are installing Denodo Express, in the field License file location enter the path to the license file (denodo-express-lic-XXXX.lic) you downloaded from the site.

If you are doing a standard installation, leave this field empty. The license file you have has to be installed in the Solution Manager, not here.

Step 3

Select the modules and components you want to install.

Step 3: selecting the modules to install

Step 3: selecting the modules to install

If you selected the custom installation, you will have to configure each module. The following sections explain how to configure each module of the Denodo Platform:

Step 4

In License Manager host, enter the host name of the computer where you installed the Denodo Solution Manager.

Leave this field empty if you are installing Denodo Express or if you have not installed the License Manager yet. You will have to change it later from the Denodo Platform Control Center.


In License Manager host you cannot enter localhost, enter the actual host name of the machine where the License Manager is installed. If it does not have a host name, enter the IP address.

Step 4: configuring the License Manager

Before the installer begins copying the necessary files (this process may take several minutes), the installer will display a summary of the installation configuration. To save this summary, click Save.

After the installer has copied all the files, you can choose to create a shortcut in the “Start” menu of Windows and the equivalent in Linux, to launch the Denodo Platform Control Center.
