Original Neuron Installer

Neuron should be installed using the InstallNeuronESB.exe installer. However, the original MSI can still be used to install Neuron ESB.

Before you install Neuron ESB, be sure you have installed all prerequisites. For more information, see Prerequisites.

You can successfully install Neuron ESB using many different configurations. Be sure to review the procedural steps carefully before you start the installation. For information about troubleshooting the installation, see Troubleshooting.
