Use this thread to ask questions about the installation process or report issues you are running into.
Note that we just released a small update (1.2.1) http://www.psdn.com/library/entry.jspa?externalID=1696, so if you have downloaded 1.2 and you are experiencing some issues - these might already be fixed.
First, it didn't like my unpatched version of OE 10.1, so I had to download and install the patch to SP2.
Now it complains about not finding IIS and quits.
I don't have a web server on this machine...
what else is "required" to be present in order to get this to work?
Are you using version 1.2 or 1.2.1? We posted the 1.2.1 today, and this should install without IIS being installed...
I'm not sure. I'll re-download the binary and try again.
One of the things that might be useful is to invert the dependency chart. I.e., say, if you don't have X, you won't be able to do B and C. Maybe a table with features on one side and dependencies on the other side. It is pretty clear that one has to have a pretty rich installation in order to run everything. I'm sure that there is more than one developer out there that is thinking in terms of installing this on their workstation ... and they aren't going to be able to run much of it there.

Good idea. Not sure if we'll do a "formal" one, but here's a brief rundown from the top of my head:
10.1A01 - Need this to run anything (with the exception of documentation). Also need to install it and get the source code (looking to change that)
IIS - Need this to run the Web interface. Also need to run LiveDoc directly from the screens (you can still run LiveDoc from the start menu without it). You can use a different web server for these two items, but you need to manually configure the virtual directories
WebSpeed - Need this to run the web interface (doh!). Still get the source code for this part without Webspeed installed.
.NET framework 1.1 - Need this to run the Kiosk application. Still get the source if you don't have this installed.
Crystal reports - Need this to run the report example. Need the developer version if you want to open the reports and change them. Still get the source code... well, you get the idea now
Java Servlet Engine - Need this to use the WebServices / run the pocket PC example (can get the source code without it)
Active Sync - Need this if you want to connect a PocketPC to your machine to use the pocket PC example. You could also use any other network connection (WiFi, Bluetooth, GPRS etc) but chances are if you have a PocketPC and know how to set this stuff up, you already have Active Sync anyway
PocketPC emulator - You need this if you want to run the PocketPC example but don't have a PocketPC. If you do have a PocketPC, don't bother with the emulator. It's really slow (nothing we can do about it) and you'll be happier running it on you device.
I think that's about it. Let me know if I missed anything and I'll try to remember what you need it for!
I still think the matrix would be a good idea ... maybe you can even come up with something from EA?
A zip file (ftp://ftp.progress.com/pub/AppliedTechnology/AEInstall/autoedge.zip) is now available for those of you that wish to review the source code but do not have OpenEdge 10.1A01 installed.
Is there any particular guidelines about getting the Sonic part set up. Yes, I have the manual, but I mean in terms of needing to install Sonic with all defaults or something. When I installed Sonic, I supplied meaningful names for a few things, like the domain, where I could guess at meaningful answers, but left the rest default. Now, when I try to follow the directions in the AutoEdge Sonic doc, I can't get the Workbench to start successfully. When I try to start the Management Console, I get
Failed to connect to Connecction1
Could not establish a connection on the specified URL(s).
Failed to connect to config server: "Failed to connect to
the management broker due to authentication failure;
connection state=1, FT-enabled=false'
Authentication makes me think it has to do with user name and password, but I don't recall establishing any. I am logged in as Administrator and using that with or without the normal password.
I might note that I am a complete newbiew when it comes to actually installing Sonic.
Try username and password both "Administrator" (or "administrator", not 100% sure). That should be the default when installing Sonic Workbench
It is defaulting to Administrator. That is what isn't working.
When 10.1B ships, will there be instructions on how to move the AutoEdge example to 10.1B or is this simply a question of needing to do a fresh install again. I made a brief trial of trying to connect to one of the databases and it won't do it without truncating the BI, but I didn't really want to do that until I am more confident that it will run on 10.1B.

While you could make all the required changes (databases, AppServers, WebSpeed, ini files, pf files, etc) manually, the easiest option should be to just re-install. I haven't personally tested 10.1B with AutoEdge yet, but I'll let you know here if we find anything that doesn't work!
Of course, if anyone was brave enough to test it on 10.1B already - did you run into any issues?
I had the same problem.
You have to use Administrator both User and Password.
I found this in the doc: Sonic\MQ7.0\samples\AdvancedSecurity\readme.htm
I tried both with and without the password, with no luck.
I have let it slide long enough now that I think I will uninstall and reinstall in order to have some idea where I am. It would be nice if there was a neophytes guide which indicated what answers to make during the initial install of Sonic.
