Here are some instructions for installing Asset Bank manually on a Windows workstation or server.
These instructions are meant to replace section 3 of the install instructions in this article.
I'll use [tomcat] to denote your tomcat home directory, and [programfiles] for your Program Files directory.
1. Download the webapp zip file: http://www.assetbank.co.uk/download/install/asset-bank.zip
Unzip this to create a folder called asset-bank, which should contain several directories (if it contains just another ‘asset-bank’ directory then that is the one you want).
Move the asset-bank directory into [tomcat]/webapps (delete the existing one if the installer put one there).
2. Delete the ImageMagick folder from under [programfiles], in case you have one there that the installer created.
3. Install ImageMagick from the 3rd party site .
Download ImageMagick-6.5.4-6-Q16-windows-dll.exe (or the latest version). Run this and follow the instructions to install it into your [programfiles] directory, with the following changes from default.
Make sure you install ImageMagick to ‘C:\Program Files\ImageMagick’ – this is different from the default that the installer suggests, but Asset Bank is configured to look for it there.
In ‘Additional Tasks’, make sure ‘Add application directory to your system path’ remains ticked.
4. Add the following to the PATH variable on your machine (My Computer > Properties > Advanced > Environment Variables. Path is in the bottom under System Variables. Add a semicolon plus the following (you need to expand [tomcat]):
Now you can carry on with the instructions in this article from section 4
