You can install Converter Standalone on a physical or a virtual machine. You can also modify or repair a Converter Standalone installation.

The Local setup installs the Converter Standalone server, Converter Standalone agent, and Converter Standalone client for local use.

Note:

Local installation of Converter Standalone complies with the following security restrictions:

  • After the initial setup, the use of an administrator account requires physical access to the product.

  • You can manage Converter Standalone only from the machine where it is installed.

During the client-server installation, you can select the Converter Standalone components that you want to install on your system. You can also choose to join the Customer Experience Improvement Program. See Configuring the Customer Experience Improvement Program

When you install the Converter Standalone server and Remote access, the local machine becomes a server for conversions, which you can manage remotely. When you install the Converter Standalone server and the Converter Standalone client, you can use the local machine to access remote Converter Standalone servers or create conversion jobs locally.

If you install only Converter Standalone client, you can connect to a remote Converter Standalone server. You can then use the remote machine to convert hosted virtual machines, managed virtual machines, or remote physical machines.
