The Spectrum Technology Platform client tools are applications that you use to administer your server and design and run dataflows and process flows. You must install your Spectrum Technology Platform server before installing the client tools.

Before installing, be sure to read the release notes. The release notes contains a list of known issues, important compatibility information, and release-specific installation notes.

This procedure describes how to install the client tools:

  • Enterprise Designer allows you to create, modify, and run dataflows.
  • Job Executor is a command line tool that allows you to run a job from a command line or script. The job must have been previously created and saved on Spectrum Technology Platform using Enterprise Designer or Flow Designer.
  • Process Flow Executor is a command line tool that allows the execution of a process flow from a command line or script. The process flow must have been previously created and saved on Spectrum Technology Platform using Enterprise Designer or Flow Designer.
  • Administration Utility provides command line access to several administrative functions. You can use it in a script, allowing you to automate certain administrative tasks. You can also use it interactively.

To install the client tools:

  1. Open a web browser and go to the Spectrum Technology Platform Welcome Page at:

    http://servername:port

    For example, if you installed Spectrum Technology Platform on a computer named myspectrumplatform and it is using the default HTTP port 8080, you would go to:

    http://myspectrumplatform:8080

  2. Click Platform Client Tools > Desktop.
  3. If Microsoft .NET Framework 4.8 or later is not already installed on your Windows operating system, first click Download Microsoft .NET Framework 4.8 to download and update Microsoft .NET Framework on the client machine.

    Versions of Microsoft .NET Framework 4.8 or later are included in Windows 11 and in Windows 10 updates starting from May 2019.

  4. Download the client tool you want to install.
