Appeon Server Web Component installation (for remote Web servers only)

If you set up an individual machine (separate from the application server) as the remote Web server, you will need to install the Appeon Server Web Component. If not, you do not need to run the installation of the Appeon Server Web Component separately since it is included in Appeon Server.


  • Install IIS 6.0, 7.0, 7.5, 8.0, or 10 on Windows Server 2012 R2, 2008 R2, or 2003.

  • Shut down the IIS service and any other Windows programs before beginning the installation process.

Prerequisites if Web Component installed to multiple Web servers

Appeon Server Web Component can be installed to multiple remote Web servers. Make sure all remote Web servers meet the above requirements and repeat the installation steps for the Appeon Server Web Component on each Web server.

Installation instructions

Step 1: Launch the Appeon for PowerBuilder 2015 Setup program and select to install Appeon Server Web Component (see Starting the installation).

Step 2: Click Browse to select the Web root for the IIS Web server (for example, "C:\Inetpub\wwwroot") or use the default installation path.

If Appeon Server Web Component is installed to the default path: "C:\Program Files\Appeon\WebComponent2015", you would need to manually copy it to the IIS Web root later in order to run the Appeon application.
