EASAP Builder and Compute Server Config Tool

The EASA Client is a locally installed Java application that currently supports two EASA tasks:

  • Authoring via the EASAP Builder
  • Administrator tasks via the Compute Server Configuration Tool

Historically, a User would interact with a published EASAP via the EASA Client but now User-access is via a web browser.

For Author documentation relevant to this no longer supported use of the EASA Client see the EASA 5.5 Help Pages.

Uninstall an EASA Client

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:

  • On Windows run <EASACLIENT>/uninstall.exe
  • On UNIX run the 'Uninstall_EASA_Client' script: <EASACLIENT>/UninstallerData

Alternatively, do any of the following from within Windows:

  • Select: Start menu > Settings > Control Panel
  • Select: Add/Remove Programs
  • Select: EASA Client
  • Click on: Change/Remove

Any of the above methods launches the 'EASA Installation Wizard' and the 'Uninstall' window will appear

  1. Click: Uninstall
  2. To remove the EASA Client click: Done

Install an EASA Client

The EASA Client is automatically available on the EASA Server.

An Author will need to install the EASA Client locally via either:

  • EASA > Install Client (in User-mode)
  • Contact us for link to download the EASA Client installer for Windows:, then download and run it.

The EASA Client will launch any file with an *.easa extension via a registry entry, thus administrator privileges are required to run the installer.

An Author who will be using Excel must meet system requirements for an Excel Server ( in particular the local machine and Excel Server must have the same version of Excel) and/or an Excel Desktop Client (an Author machine and end Users must have the same Excel version).

To install the EASA Client software:

  1. In User-mode click on: EASA > Install Client
  2. Select the executable
  3. As a Windows 'administrator' open the executable
  4. A 'Welcome window' appears with an introduction to the installation process
  5. Click: Next
    …A 'License Agreement' window opens
  6. Select: I accept the agreement
  7. Click: Next
    …A 'Select Destination Directory' window appears
  8. Choose a folder for the EASA Client
  9. Click: Next
  10. Click: Finish
