How to install Login PI 1.1.21 and newer

First download the installer at Login VSI Downloads



Run the executable.


Under options, update the install location and default PI server port if necessary; read through and accept license agreement. Click the Install button.


During the installation the progress bar will appear. Note that: IIS will be configured.


Visual C++ packages will be installed.


And the Login PI Server gets installed.


Click on Launch button at successful Login PI Server installation page


Provide credentials to access the PI page


Configure database connection when directed to the Configuration page
Hostname – Name of the host with SQL installed
Update Instance name from MSSQLSERVER and Port from 1433 if need be


SQL Instance Name – Found within the SQL management studio (SQLEXPRESS was used in this example)


Provide the credentials that are used to initiate the database on your SQL server


Note: if you receive the following error, validate that the database was created in the database management program:


After automatic database creation, here’s the expected SQL Management Studio appearance.
If the database has been created then proceed, if not, please contact support for assistance


Then, fill out the Login PI AD script creation page. In this below example the domain logintest.local was used.


Once configured you will be asked to save the automatically generated PS1 file.
Once the script has been generated and saved, you can hit “skip”


This will bring you into the management page for PI. It will request that you install a license file.


Navigate to the configuration drop down in the upper left-hand corner (Cog Icon)


Browse to and locate your *.lic file, then select “Upload file”


Once the license is applied it will appear as below, and you will be ready to configure your profile & jobs.
