PowerServer 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 PowerServer Web Component. If not, you do not need to run the installation of the PowerServer Web Component separately since it is included in PowerServer.


  • Install IIS 7.5, 8.0, or 10 on Windows Server 2016, 2012 R2, or 2008 R2.

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

If Web Component is installed to multiple Web servers

PowerServer 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 PowerServer Web Component on each Web server.

Installation instructions

Step 1: Launch the PowerBuilder 2019 Setup program and select to install PowerServer 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 PowerServer Web Component is installed to the default path: "C:\Program Files\Appeon\PowerServer\WebComponent2019", you would need to manually copy it to the IIS Web root later in order to run the Appeon application.

Step 3: Check the summary of settings. Click Back to change any unwanted settings or click Next and Setup will begin copying files.

Step 4: Click Finish when the installation is complete.

Configuring the Appeon redirector plug-in

To ensure the remote Web server works with PowerServer, install and configure the Appeon redirector plug-in for the Web server. Instructions for installing and configuring the Appeon plug-in are provided in Web Server Configuration Guide.
