Installing on Windows 7

The only difference between installing on a Server OS vs. Windows 7, is turning on the Internet Information Services/ World Wide Web Services feature (Instead of installing the IIS role)
This can be found in Control Panel >> Programs and Features >> "Turn Windows Features on or off" (found on left panel)
Install by checking the box for Internet Information Services.
 
The automated installation guide can be found on our website here: http://www.ipconfigure.com/pdf/ESM_5.4.5_Automated_Installation_Guide.pdf
(The version on the cover is different but the process is still the same)
 
Once ESM is installed, you will need to force Silverlight since Windows Media Services is not a Windows 7 feature.

You can force Silverlight by going to the management server. Then go to the cameras website root (usually C:\ipconfigure\), open the web.config file.
Find:
<add key="ForceSilverlight" value="False"/>
Change it to:
<add key="ForceSilverlight" value="True"/>
 
Please be aware of some of the Silverlight Limitations:
No digital zoom functionality
No audio in Matrix or Playback
Max of 1080p resolution
No MPEG4 playback
No Fast-Forward/Rewind on Archive Playback
 
Also, Windows 7 has a connection limit. Therefore, we recommend no more than 4 cameras recording at a time (less if multiple users will be monitoring ESM.)
