1. Prepare for installation and review prerequisites.

Ensure that your environment meets the prerequisites. Ensure that the required CDs are available. See Preparing for Installation.

2. Install Interaction Server.

iWD 8.5 requires Interaction Server 8.1.1 or higher. Genesys recommends that you use the latest version of Interaction Server that is included with iWD.

4. (Optional) Upload the iWD Installation Packages in GAX.

Optionally you can upload all the iWD installation packages (IPs) now. See Uploading IPs Using GAX. Alternatively, you can do this on a component-by-component basis, in which case the templates must be uploaded separately.

In Genesys Administrator Extension, install the iWD GAX Plugin component, which is required to complete iWD configuration. See Install iWD GAX Plugin.
