This topic describes how to perform a fresh installation of Console. To start the installation process, log into your computer as an Administrator (or Domain Administrator if in an Active Directory environment) and follow the steps below. If you are upgrading Console rather than starting a fresh installation, please refer instead to Upgrading Console to the Current Version.
Use the credentials provided by Aspera to download the Console installer from the Aspera website: http://downloads.asperasoft.com/en/downloads/3

|Custom||Select the components to install. You can use your existing installation of Ruby, MySQL or Console's MySQL database for the new installation.|

Once installation is complete, click Finish. By default, the installer automatically runs the asctlsetup command. If you do not want to run the setup command automatically, clear Launch asctl to continue the Console setup and click Finish.
