Eloquence B.06.32 - Windows Installation Instructions
This directory holds the release of the Eloquence B.06.32 distribution
for the 32bit Windows platform.
This installation program is based on the Microsoft Windows Installer
and thus complies to the Microsoft Windows XP and 2000 requirements.
Supported platforms: Windows XP, 2000, NT 4, ME, 98 and 95
* Please note if you already have Eloquence installed *
* --------------------------------------------------- *
* The Eloquence B.06.32 installation program will automatically detect *
* and uninstall any existing Eloquence software. *
* Your existing configuration files will be preserved. *
* It is not necessary and also not recommended to manually uninstall *
* your existing Eloquence software. *
* By default Eloquence B.06.32 uses an installation directory different *
* from older Eloquence versions up to A.06.31. The installation program *
* will automatically migrate your existing configuration files to the *
* new installation directory. *
* If you however have Eloquence B.06.32 or above installed the new *
* version will be installed into the existing installation directory by *
* default. *
* Please read the section about updating your Eloquence software below. *
1) Download the appropriate setup executable depending on your operating
eq63_win2k.exe - for the Windows XP or 2000 platforms
or if the Microsoft Windows Installer engine is already
present on your Windows NT, ME, 98 or 95 system
eq63_winnt.exe - for the Windows NT platform
eq63_win9x.exe - for the Windows ME, 98 and 95 platforms
Unless you plan to install Eloquence B.06.32 on several machines
and different platforms you need only one of these three files.
The setup executables for Windows NT, ME, 98 and 95 are about 1.4 MB
bigger than the one for Windows XP and 2000 because they additionally
include the Microsoft Windows Installer 1.2 engine which is a Windows
XP and 2000 system component.
If the Microsoft Windows Installer engine is already present on your
Windows NT, ME, 98 or 95 system it is sufficient to download the rather
small eq63_win2k.exe (use Start Menu -> Find -> Files or Folders to
look for a file named msiexec.exe - if it exists the Microsoft Windows
Installer engine is already present).
IMPORTANT NOTE: This is a download installation. It requires write
permissions in the current directory where the eq63_*.exe setup
executable is located along with the downloaded archives. If you intend
to use the downloaded files on a CD or DVD you first have to unpack the
self extracting eq63_*.exe setup executable. It will extract the files
setup.exe, eq63.msi and some .ini files. Afterwards, the setup.exe will
be started which you can immediately cancel. Then copy the extracted
files, not the eq63_*.exe setup executable, to your CD or DVD.
2) The Eloquence components are divided into separate file archives by
category. Depending on your requirements you might not need all of them.
The installation detects which archives were downloaded (they must be
located along with the setup executable in the same directory) and lets
you choose among them which components are to be installed.
Due to a limitation in the Microsoft Windows Installer implementation
the archives have short DOS 8.3 file names. The suggested long names
are indicated in addition.
Just download all the components you need. These are the various
components and what they contain:
eq63_01.cab (long name: eq63_client_gui.cab)
- contains the runsrv32 and dlgsrv32 graphical user interface
components necessary to execute any local or remote GUI-enabled
Eloquence program. Such a program can conveniently be started
with either the eqstart or eqexec32 utilities which are both
included as well. This is the minimum client installation.
eq63_02.cab (long name: eq63_client_runtime.cab)
- contains the eloqcore program which enables you to locally execute
Eloquence programs. Additionally, the Eloquence configuration
utility is included. If your programs all reside on remote systems
it is not necessary to install this archive.
eq63_03.cab (long name: eq63_client_developer.cab)
- contains the Eloquence Integrated Development Environment
(the IDE) as well as the list and store utilities. If you do not
modify your programs on or from the particular system it is not
necessary to install this archive.
eq63_04.cab (long name: eq63_client_dbtools.cab)
- contains the client database tools necessary to create and maintain
Eloquence databases, such as schema, dbcreate, dbimport and dbutil.
If you do not maintain your databases on or from the particular
system it is not necessary to install this archive.
eq63_05.cab (long name: eq63_client_dblib.cab)
- contains the client database library which is required to access
Eloquence databases from within programming languages other than
eq63_06.cab (long name: eq63_server.cab)
- contains the eloqdb6 database server as well as the eloqsd service.
If the particular system runs Windows XP, 2000 or NT and is intended
to act as an Eloquence database and/or application server this
archive must be installed. Since the Windows Service Control Manager
is not available on Windows ME, 98 or 95 the server components are
not installed unless your system runs Windows XP, 2000 or NT.
eq63_07.cab (long name: eq63_doc_html.cab)
- contains the core on-line documentation and release notes and should
be installed along with the client_runtime and/or client_developer
eq63_08.cab (long name: eq63_manuals_html.cab)
- contains the entire manual set in HTML format. Since these are a lot
of small files you should consider to install this archive in a
central location and integrate it into your intranet web server's
document hierarchy. By default, this archive is not installed.
However, if you select to install this archive it will automatically
integrate into the on-line documentation.
eq63_09.cab (long name: eq63_manuals_pdf.cab)
- contains the entire manual set in PDF format to be viewed with the
Adobe Acrobat Reader (TM) which is included on this media and
freely available on the Internet
( http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep.html ).
By default, this archive is not installed.
By default, all components except the manuals are installed. However,
you can manually select which components you want to install.
3) On Windows XP, 2000 or NT please log-on as Administrator before you
install Eloquence (Windows "Power-User" privileges are sufficient).
4) If you already have Eloquence installed:
a) Please make sure that no Eloquence program is running (e.g. stop
the RUN server and exit from the IDE). You don't have to stop the
servers, though, because the installation program will appropriately
stop and uninstall them.
b) The Eloquence B.06.32 installation program will automatically detect
and uninstall any existing Eloquence software.
Your existing configuration files will be preserved.
It is not necessary and also not recommended to manually uninstall
your existing Eloquence software.
By default Eloquence B.06.32 uses an installation directory different
from older Eloquence versions up to A.06.31. The installation program
will automatically migrate your existing configuration files to the
new installation directory.
If you however have Eloquence B.06.32 or above installed the new
version will be installed into the existing installation directory by
Please read the section about updating your Eloquence software below.
5) Now start the setup executable which reflects your operating system
and follow the installation instructions.
On Windows XP, 2000 or NT, if you downloaded the server archive you
have the choice to install a temporary server license if Eloquence
B.06.32 is installed for the first time. This option is enabled by
default. You can deselect this option manually if you don't want to
install the temporary server license now. Later, you can use the
Software applet in the Windows Control Panel to modify your Eloquence
B.06.32 installation which will allow you to install the temporary
6) After installation on Windows XP, 2000 or NT a B.06.3x license key is
required in order to use the Eloquence server components. During
installation a temporary license key is generated on demand which
is valid until 30 days after installation.
Please visit the Eloquence Web site at
for details about obtaining a permanent Eloquence license key.
Your license file is located in the etc subdirectory of your
Eloquence installation, for example at
Please comment out any previous license key when adding the new
B.06.3x license key to your license file. Otherwise the new license
may not be recognized and chklic might output the following messages:
A.06.30: Bad license key revision.
Duplicate sequence number: Ignoring license
If you're using the Eloquence Personal Edition, please use the license
template file license.sam, it contains an updated license key for the
Eloquence Personal Edition.
The license.sam file is located in the etc subdirectory of your
Eloquence installation and should be copied into the license file
located in the same directory.
Updating your existing Eloquence software
If your existing Eloquence software is version B.06.32 or above it will be
uninstalled automatically. The new version will be installed into the
existing installation directory. This will preserve your configuration
If you however have HP Eloquence A.06.31 or below installed please note:
* By default, Eloquence B.06.32 is installed into a different location
than HP Eloquence versions up to A.06.31. The new location is
as opposed to the previous location which was
C:\Program Files\Hewlett-Packard\HP Eloquence
* The installation program will automatically migrate your configuration
and license files from a previous HP Eloquence installation. This will
take the new software location into account so it is not necessary to
install Eloquence B.06.32 into the same directory where your previous
HP Eloquence software is installed.
* The installation program will also uninstall your previous HP Eloquence
software. It is not necessary to uninstall it yourself. In fact, this
would prevent the installation program from detecting your previous
HP Eloquence version.
* Uninstallation takes place before the new software is copied to your
disk. For HP Eloquence A.06.3x, the uninstallation process is visually
indicated. Versions before A.06.30 are however silently uninstalled.
Please be patient during uninstallation.
* All standard HP Eloquence settings in the Windows registry are migrated
as well. While the HP Eloquence root key is migrated by the installation
program the application-specific settings are migrated by the respective
programs, i.e. the Eloquence IDE, the Eqstart program and the
* However, in case you manually created non-standard registry settings
these must be manually migrated. The new Eloquence registry key is
* If you are using a HP Eloquence A.07.00 beta eloqdb6 database server
as of version X.23.09 or below it still requires the old HP Eloquence
registry key. In this case, the B.06.32 installation will create an
additional HP Eloquence registry key to keep this database server
* As in previous HP Eloquence versions, the corresponding HKEY_CURRENT_USER
key is searched first to allow overriding the defaults with user-specific
IMPORTANT NOTE: The Eloquence B.06.32 server components require a new
license key. Previous A.06.xx license keys do not work anymore (to ease
the update from a previous Eloquence release, a key revision of A.06.31
is however accepted). To migrate your existing license, first install the
temporary license, then visit the Eloquence web site at
to obtain a new license key.
Changes to previous Eloquence installations
* Migration and uninstallation of previous HP Eloquence software
If you have a HP Eloquence version A.06.31 or below installed its
configuration and license files are migrated to Eloquence B.06.32.
The previous software is uninstalled afterwards.
* Default installation location
As opposed to HP Eloquence versions A.06.31 and below, the default
Eloquence B.06.32 installation directory has been changed to:
* Registry root key
As opposed to HP Eloquence versions A.06.31 and below, the Eloquence
B.06.32 registry root key has been changed to:
The old HP Eloquence registry root key will however be created in case
you are using a HP Eloquence A.07.00 beta eloqdb6 database server as of
version X.23.09 or below to keep it functional.
* Default server names
As opposed to HP Eloquence versions A.06.31 and below, the default
Eloquence server names in the Windows Service Control Manager have been
changed. By default, the database server is named "eloqdb6" and the
application server is named "eloqsd" (formerly "HP EloqDB6" and "HP
If you are using a HP Eloquence A.07.00 beta eloqdb6 database server as
of version X.23.09 or below it will not be overwritten. In this case you
will still find the database server named "HP EloqDB6" in the Windows
Service Control Manager.
* Component archives
As opposed to HP Eloquence versions A.06.31 and below, the archive files
eq70_client_dbtools.cab and eq70_client_dblib.cab have been added to
separate the database tools and libraries from the runtime and
The eq63_client_image3k.cab present in HP Eloquence A.06.31 has been
removed. This component is no longer contained in Eloquence B.06.32.
Due to a limitation in the Microsoft Windows Installer implementation
the archives have short DOS 8.3 file names.
* Automatic stop and uninstallation of Eloquence servers
Before installation or uninstallation begins, all running Eloquence
servers (eloqdb6, eloqsd) are stopped and all present Eloquence servers
are removed from the Windows Service Control Manager.
After installation has finished, the default eloqdb6 and eloqsd servers
are installed in the Windows Service Control Manager. However, they are
not started automatically because the configuration and license probably
must be adjusted manually.
The bin subdirectory of the Eloquence B.06.32 installation (for example
C:\Program Files\Eloquence\bin) is added to the PATH environment variable
so that each of the Eloquence command line programs can be conveniently
executed. On Windows XP, 2000 and NT this is applied to the system PATH
On uninstallation, this setting is removed.
* Configuration files
The SYSTEM and EXAMPLE volume paths are configured into the eloq.config
file located in the etc subdirectory. Therefore, the Eloquence B.06.32
system programs (such as QUERY, CFORM, MFORM, PFORM) and examples can
be executed without further configuration.
The system and example programs are located in the share\prog and
share\example subdirectories, respectively.
Of course, if the existing eloq.config file contains customized settings
which are different from the default settings they are not changed to
keep your eloq.config file functional.
* Windows system files
The Eloquence TCP network services are configured into the Windows
SERVICES file. No further configuration is necessary to run any Eloquence
client or server programs. However, these settings are not removed on
* Windows start menu
The Eloquence program group contains additional shortcuts for Eloquence
QUERY and the on-line documentation and manuals.
* Autostart shortcut
If the eq63_client_gui.cab archive is installed an autostart shortcut is
created for the Eloquence RUN Server (applies to "All Users" on Windows
XP, 2000 and NT). It is removed on uninstallation.
* License requirements
Eloquence B.06.32 requires a new license key. Previous A.06.xx license
keys do not work anymore (to ease the update from a previous Eloquence
release, a key revision of A.06.31 is however accepted). The installation
program installs a temporary license on demand even if an A.06.xx
temporary license has been installed previously.
