Pre-Installation checks for UNIFYBroker Installer

Hi Guys,

Thought I would raise a feature request for this since over my last couple of upgrades of UNIFYBroker I have run into a couple of issues. Now that I have done a few installs I am now aware of a couple of these issues, but for those of us who may not be aware I think it would be a good idea to have a couple of checks in the installer (probably at the beginning like FIM Service installer has) before changes are made to UNIFYBroker.

The checks I wanted to raise are the following:

  • Read/Write permissions to specific directories UNIFY Broker uses during the install (I haven't run into an issue with this but may be worth putting in)
  • Account performing the install has DBOwner permissions to the UNIFYBroker database (I have been hurt by this issue a couple of times so I know it would be a great check to have)
  • Check for correct version of .Net is installed on the machine

Of course all this is dependent on the installer used an how customization it is, but I think they would make a great addition.
