Installing Chiapas EDI Enterprise

A 64-bit operating system with .NET 4.0 installed is required; 8 GB of RAM is highly recommended.  To access the integration features of Chiapas EDI Enterprise, SQL Server 2012 R2 or above must be installed. 

  1. Download the installer, an '.msi' executable file.

  2. Double-click on it; all files will be installed to the C:\chiapas directory.

  3. Double-click on the chiapasData installer within C:\chiapas\db and install the database to a SQL Server instance.

    NOTE: If the destination server is not a locally installed Named instance of 'MSSQLSERVER', you will need to execute two steps:
    a. Update the connection string on the filesystem at C:\chiapas\bin\cnnstr.txt - if the local instance is named './SQLEXPRESS', use the connection string embedded within the quotes below.
    b. Update the embedded connection string within the data shuttle trigger located within the chiapasData database. If you are running SQLEXPRESS, run the following SQL to update the connection string:

    UPDATE chiapasData.dbo.TSRC SET TSRC_DATA01 = 'Data Source=.\SQLEXPRESS;Database=chiapasData;Trusted_Connection=true;' WHERE TSRC_ID = 13
  4. If you are using the Evaluation Version or Tier 1 or Tier 2, skip this step.  Otherwise, Chiapas EDI needs a file called "cores.txt" in the C:\chiapas\bin folder before it function.  In this file, put in a single text number indicating the number of concurrent processes Chiapas EDI will launch; this number is generally between 1X and 1.5X the logical CPU count of the computer on which Chiapas EDI is installed.
  5. Start → Right Click on Computer, select 'Manage', Go to Configuration, Services, Right-click Properties on ChiapasService, switch to LogOn tab, then 'Log On As' information for an account with permissions to log on to the ChiapasData database.

  6. Return to the General Tab, press 'Start' to start running the automation service.

  7. To run the front-end interface, run the C:\chiapas\bin\ChiapasStudio.exe file as Administrator.

Note 2:  If you are upgrading from a previous installation and have modified the c:\chiapas\bin\cnnstr.txt or c:\chiapas\bin\default.winstate files, make a backup prior to re-installing as they will be overwritten.
