2.7. Installing and upgrading on Windows Previous topic Parent topic Child topic Next topic

Radiator works on Windows 7/8/8.1/10/11 and Server 2008/2012/2016/2019/2022. We recommend installing Radiator with a MSI package that bundles Radiator and Strawberry Perl.
An alternative option is to first install a Perl distribution and then install Radiator from a source code package. This is similar to using a process that is similar to full source distribution installation. For more information, see Section 2.8.
If you'd like to use Radiator source code package, we recommend using ActiveState's Perl distribution ActivePerl or Strawberry Perl. For installation packages and support, see their websites ActiveState website, and Strawberry Perl website. ActivePerl installs quickly and easily, and almost all the optional modules are readily available and easy to install. Strawberry Perl has different packaging and support options and is also quick and easy to install with a large number of optional modules.
Radiator comes with precompiled Perl modules required for <AuthBy LSA> authentication. <AuthBy ACE> and Digipass authentication require a separate binary module. If you require one of these authentication methods, it limits your choice of Perl version to install.
If you require RSA <AuthBy ACE> support, download Authen::ACE4 from CPAN and compile it for your chosen Perl distribution. For more information, see Section 2.1.2. In case you need help with Authen::ACE4 setup, contact Radiator Software.
If you require Digipass module for your chosen Perl distribution, contact Radiator Software.
Radiator currently comes with precompiled modules for Win32::LSA that have been tested with ActivePerl and Strawberry Perl. This module comes pre-installed with Radiator MSI packages.
