4. Install Assessment Delivery Web Server

Applies to the following products: 
Questionmark Perception
Applies to the following Perception versions:

After you've installed the prerequisites for the Assessment Delivery Web Server component, you will need to download the installer to your Assessment Delivery Web Server (QPLA) server and follow the steps below.

Assessment Delivery Web Server will be installed on your Assessment Delivery Web Server (QPLA) server.

Please note: By default, users do not have administrative user rights if you are logged on as a user other than the built-in administrator. This is also true even if you were added to the local Administrators group on the computer (this is a new security feature in Windows Server 2008 R2 called Local User Administrator). If you do not have these privileges, Perception will not install correctly. Log in as the built-in administrator account, or explicitly invoke applications as the built-in administrator by using the Run as administrator command.

You will need to make sure you are logged in as an administrator when completing the installation of Perception.

To install Assessment Delivery Web Server (QPLA):

  1. Launch the installer as an administrative user (see above for details), entering the password when prompted
  2. Select Custom from the Setup Type window.
