Summary: This section explains how to create the run the CAST Security setup i.e. the installation of a dedicated workstation with all CAST Security end-user applications.



Ensure that the target workstation meets all hardware and operating system requirements (see the CAST AIP requirements, they are identical: Appendix - CAST Administration workstation installation and hardware requirements)


Your login requires local "Administrator" privileges to run the setup. In addition, the setup requires elevated permissions and therefore needs to be run using the "Run as Administrator" option.

Make sure that you disable your anti-virus software prior to launching the CAST AIP installer.


Please note that – generally speaking – the installation path must only contain ASCII characters or characters of the language (or language group) of your Windows operating system.
