Installation Requirements

Like most Windows software, BizInt Smart Charts typically requires administrator privileges to install. Depending on local policies, upgrades may not require administrator privileges.

BizInt Smart Charts installation has been designed to minimally affect system configuration. All application files are installed into the specified target directory (or sub-directories). No files are added to system folders. Details of the installation process can help you plan for installation.
