Installing DataSecurity Plus as an application

By default, the product will be installed as an application. Once you've downloaded the EXE file, run it and follow these instructions for installation:

  • Once the InstallShield Wizard opens, click Next.
  • Read the License Agreement and click Yes.
  • Choose the destination folder for installation and click Next. By default, DataSecurity Plus will be installed in C:\Program Files (x86)\ManageEngine\DataSecurity Plus.

    Troubleshooting: "Some files exist in the specified directory. Kindly provide a different location for installing DataSecurity Plus."

    This error will occur if log files from a previous DataSecurity Plus instance are present in the destination folder. You can manually delete the DataSecurity Plus folder, or create a new folder called “DataSecurity Plus ” in C:\Program Files (x86)\ManageEngine\ and make it the destination folder.

  • Enter the port number that you wish to use for DataSecurity Plus and click Next.
  • Note: The default port used by DataSecurity Plus is 8800.

  • Sign up for technical support. All you have to do is enter the required details and click Next.
  • Note: Antivirus scanners interfering with the database file may affect normal functioning of the database. Ensure that the DataSecurity Plus installation folder is exempt from the scope of your antivirus scanners.

  • Click Next again to allow DataSecurity Plus to begin copying files to the installation directory. This process will take a few minutes.
  • Select Start DataSecurity Plus, and click Finish.

Installing DataSecurity Plus as a Windows service (Recommended)

To run DataSecurity Plus as a Windows service:

  • Go to Windows > DataSecurity Plus.
  • Click Install as a Service.

Alternatively, you can also:

  • Open the Command Prompt.
  • Navigate to <installation dir>\ManageEngine\DataSecurity Plus\bin.
  • Type “InstallNTService.bat”.

Best practice: Install DataSecurity Plus as a service to ensure that event collection doesn't stop even after a user logs out.
