AdminWizard installation


SecuLution maintains 3 different version levels of our product:

  • "Release version" include changes that affect the softwares security and stability. An update to at least this version is highly recommended. These versions are available using the menu "Extra / Updates / Download now / Release version" and are automatically reported when "Check for updates on startup weekly" is selected.
  • "Latest version" include new features or bugfixes for problems that may only affect specific customer configurations. These versions are available via "Extra / Updates / Download now / Latest version".
  • "Beta" versions are available from the manufacturer exclusively on demand.

We recommend using the "Latest version". Customers who want to avoid frequent updates should always use at least the "Release version".

Installing the AdminWizard

Installing the AdminWizard is done in 1-3 steps:
1. Installation of the original setup.exe from the CD that you received when purchasing SecuLution.
(setup.exe has been generated individually for each customer and is required for installation.)
2. Installation of of updates for the AdminWizard (if applicable).
(Updates can only be installed after the original setup.exe was installed.)
3. Overwriting the certificate file ca-bundle.crt with the latest version (if applicable).
(The certificate, which is used to encrypt the connection to the appliance, is valid for a limited time and is automatically replaced about every 5 years. Longtime customers may have received a new certificate, which must be used to overwrite the file in the installation directory of the Admin Wizard.)

Updating the AdminWizard

Update installation files are stored in a temporary folder. To update the Admin Wizard just run the executable update file as administrator.
(This update will not include your certificate, so it can not be used for the initial installation of the AdminWizard.)

Where to install the AdminWizard

We recommend that you install the AdminWizard on desktop computers of administrators who should have the rights to modify the whitelist (add/manage/delete entries from the whitelist). We also recommend having one installation of the AdminWizard on a Windows server for performing automated tasks at night. Since one of these automated tasks is importing WSUS patches, your WSUS server may be a good choice.

You may install the AdminWizard on as many of machines as you want.
