This documentation goes over the custom Silo installation options in an Enterprise environment.


1.     The person doing the install has sufficient Administrative privileges on the workstations
2.     The installation will be made into "C:\Program Files (x86)"
3.     All references to auto-update are removed from the product. This means that System Administrators are responsible for maintaining software updates.
4.     The installation steps described below are for reference only.  They are used to illustrate how the installation would occur if they are done manually. If you are using a Managed Software solution, you will need to modify the instructions as needed.
