This section covers both interactive and "silent" installation on Windows as well as normal and headless installation on Linux. The section also lists the most important folders that will be created during installation.
Before installing on Windows or Linux, you must decide whether to install the 32-bit or the 64-bit version. The key issues to consider are:
Your operating system may only support one of the versions. 64-bit Windows support both and on Linux it is recommended to use the one that match your installation.
The 64-bit version is mainly useful on servers where you want to run RoboServers that use much RAM. (You will need to configure the allowed amount of RAM after installation as described in the section Changing the RAM Allocation).
It is possible to install both the 32-bit and the 64-bit versions of Kapow Katalyst on the same computer, and they will share configuration and robots without any extra work on your side. However, every time you want to start one of the Kapow Katalyst applications, you must take care to start the right version (32-bit or 64-bit). Additionally, on Linux, make sure to select different installation folders for the 32-bit and 64-bit versions (on Windows, this is automatic).
