OLI Changed the installation program with version Analyzer 3.0 and Engine 8.2 and this allows us more installation options.

Installing a Network Client version of the OLI software

This video tutorial shows you how to install the OLI software when used with a network installation. The OLI Analyzers is used as an example but a short section of testing an alliance product is also shown.

Installation Failure

Occasionally the installation will fail to properly install. When this happens we can run a diagnostic test. We are using Analyzers 3.1.1 as an example, see below for the actual command lines:

The user will need to
use the command window (start > run > cmd) and issue the following command for the OLI Studio

  1. Download and save the installation file to a folder such as "My Documents"
  2. Start the command window (start > run > cmd)
  3. From the command window issue the command CD "My Documents"
  4. Issue this command for the OLI Analyzer 3.1 (remember to use the quote marks!)

    "OLI Analyzer 3.1.1.exe" /log fail.txt

This will create a text file named "fail.txt" in the same folder as the EXE file. Please send this file to OLI for Analysis.

Command Lines for each product:

Product Command Line
Analyzers "OLI Analyzer 3.1.3.exe" /log fail.txt
ESP "OLI ESP 8.2.3.exe" /log fail.txt
ScaleChem "OLI ScaleChem 4.0.3.exe" /log fail.txt
Aspen PLUS "OLI Engine 8.2 in Aspen Plus V7." /log fail.txt
Aspen HYSYS "OLI Alliance Suite for Aspen HYSYS V7." /log fail.txt
OLI Network License Manager "OLI Network License Server 2.1.7.exe" /log fail.txt

We have some additional documentation on how to run the install from the command line: Command Line Installation
