Q&A: How should I install Limagito File Mover

Q: How should I install Limagito File Mover

A: This depends on how our File Mover will be used. Most of the time users install our file mover as a service. The advantage is that the system, where our file mover is installed on, does not need to be logged on.

  • Installing Limagito File Mover as a Service
    • Very important:
      • Change the ‘logon as’ user of the File Mover Service to a user with sufficient rights!
      • The ‘logon as’ user should belong to the ‘Local Administrator’ group of the system where the service is installed on.
    • What should be running on your system when using our File Mover as Service:
      • LimagitoXS.exe = File Mover Service Engine doing all the work.
      • LimagitoXC.exe = File Mover Configuration Tool. You will use this shortly to import the License file and to install the File Mover Service Engine (and Web Remote Service = optional).
      • LimagitoXR.exe = File Mover Remote Tool. Will be used during configuration and monitoring. Don’t need to be running.
    •  What should NOT be running on your system when using our File Mover as Service:
      • LimagitoXA.exe = File Mover Application Engine. It’s even a good idea to remove the shortcut to the LimagitoXA.exe file.
    • What is optional:
      • LimagitoXW.exe = File Mover Web Remote Tool. This is our web based remote tool and can be installed using our Configuration Tool (LimagitoXC.exe). It’s a second service with an internal web server which gives you the possibility to control our File Mover using your browser.
    • Using a drive letter when using LimagitoX as a service
