Once the changes have been applied, you may need to restart the server.

Quasar UI Setup and Installation

1. Install Quasar UI

Install the SetupQuasarV###UI.exe file where ### represents the version number of the software. Your Quasar Specialist will provide you with the most recent version of the file. Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the installation of the Quasar UI package. The default installation path is C:\Program Files (x86)\quasar\ui

2. Verify and Install the Quasar Web UI

Open a command prompt as an Administrator and test that the Quasar UI installation was successful and folder permissions have been set correctly. If there are any folder permissions errors, the most likely cause is due to installing the Quasar application under a different username.

cd C:\Program Files (x86)\quasar\ui
quasarisapi.exe

If everything has been configured correctly and there are no errors with the folder security permissions, install the web ui:

quasarisapi.exe install

3. Start the Default Web Site

By default, Quasar installs a “quasar” subdirectory under the Default Web Site. Once the Quasar UI has been installed, start the Default Web Site again.

4. Open the Quasar UI in your Preferred Browser

In your preferred browser (we recommend Chrome), navigate to http://localhost/quasar/agents/all and you should see an interface similar to below.

Quasar Web UI

Common Errors

If you see an error similar to:

Quasar Permissions Error

Go back and ensure that the App Pool owner has been configured with the correct Owner and that the Service has been given Logon permissions with the correct account. Both of these must be configured for the account that Quasar was installed with.
