2.Installing the U2000 LCT
You can install the U2000 LCT after the preparations finished.
2.1 Performing the Pre-installation Check
Step 1 Log in to the OS as an administrator.
Step 2 Check that a Windows OS and related patches have been installed.
Checking Hardware and Software Configurations.
As Windows XP Professional SP3 for example, to check whether a patch has been installed, right-click My Computer and choose Properties from the shortcut menu. If Service Pack x is displayed in the System area on the General tab page, the Service Pack x patch has been installed.
Step 3 Check whether the U2000 has been installed.
The U2000 LCT and U2000 cannot be installed on the same OS. If so, the U2000 LCT fails to be used properly.
1. Check whether the U2000 Client, U2000 System Monitor, U2000 Server, U2000 NMS Maintenance Suite, and NE Software Management shortcut icons are displayed on the Windows desktop.
2. Check whether the U2000 server installation path, for example, D:\oss, exists.
Step 4 Check that a database has been installed.
1. Choose Start > All Programs.
2. Check whether the Microsoft SQL Server 2008 or Microsoft SQL Server program exists.
If the program exists, the database has been installed.
If the SQL Server 2008, SQL Server 2000 or MSDE 2000A database has not been installed, a database will be installed along with the U2000 LCT.
If the SQL Server 2008, SQL Server 2000 or MSDE 2000A database has been installed and data in the database is sorted in binary mode, the database can be reused for the U2000 LCT in Step 10.
If data in the database is not sorted in binary mode, the database cannot be reused for the U2000 LCT and you must uninstall the database. For details, see the other guide.
To check whether data in the SQL Server 2000 or MSDE 2000A is sorted in binary mode, perform the following steps:
1. Choose Start > Run. In the Run dialog box, enter the cmd command and click OK to start the CLI.
2. Run the following command: C:\> isql -Usa -Psa_password -Sdatabase_name 1> sp_helpsort 2> go
If the command output contains binary sort, data in the database is sorted in binary mode.
Step 5 Check that the available space on either disk C or disk which LCT will be installed is larger than 10 GB.
Step 6 Check that current language for non-Unicode programs is English (United States).
2.2 Installing the U2000 LCT and Database
The name of all software installation directories can contain only letters, numbers, and underscores. If a name contains spaces, parentheses, or Chinese characters, the installation will be failed.
Do not change the system time during installation, otherwise, the installation will be failed.
Ensure that the database is running if the database is already installed.
Ensure that the U2000 is not installed on the OS. For details, see Step 3.

Step 11 Verify all pre-installation check items and click Next. The Confirm Installation Information dialog box is displayed.
Step 12 Confirm installation information and click Next. An installation progress dialog box is displayed.
By default, the U2000 LCT can automatically expand the database based on growth parameters that are set during database creation. Ensure that the available disk space is greater than the maximum size that the database can grow before installation. If the available disk space is smaller than the maximum size that the database can grow, a message in red fonts indicating insufficient available disk space is displayed.
During installation, do not leave the PC idle for a long time. Otherwise, the PC enters the hibernation state and the installation fails.
Step 13 Click Finish.
Step 14 Click Yes to restart the OS.
