  • Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.2 or later. You can download the .NET installer from the same Web page as the IaaS installer.

  • If you are using Internet Explorer for the download, verify that Enhanced Security Configuration is not enabled. Point Internet Explorer to res://iesetup.dll/SoftAdmin.htm on the Windows server.


  1. Using an account with administrator privileges, log in to the Windows server.
  2. Point a Web browser to the following URL on the vRealize Automation appliance.


  3. Click IaaS Installer.
