Windows EASA installations include the EASA Client by default.
The EASA Client is required on any machine hosting EASAP Builder, an Authoring development environment.
EASA no longer has any active development of the EASA Client outside of Authoring although the functionality for a User to run an EASAP without needing a web browser remains.
EASA is a system to create and operate EASA Applications (EASAPs). In most cases an EASAP opens within a web browser. Historically there were instances when an Author would build an EASAP that required the EASA Client, these instructions are for that case.
Before installing the EASA Client, any prior EASA Client from an EASA version of 3.1 or lower must be removed in one of the following ways:
Alternatively, from within Windows:
Any of these methods launches the EASA Installation Wizard, the Uninstall window will appear. Click the Uninstall button, eventually, click Done to remove the EASA Client.

Where <domain_name> is the domain name of EASA and <port_number> is the port number entered during installation. If no domain name was explicitly specified during installation, then it defaults to the computer name of the EASA Server. For the default installation (port 80) use the first web address shown above. The EASA Log In page should appear in the browser window.
If the EASA Client has not been installed:
A new window will appear with a progress bar showing the status of the loading process. The application may take up to a minute to load, and when it is finished loading, it should look like the window pictured below.
If the application does not appear as expected:
