In most cases you can use the default settings in the installer. This section describes what each setting does.
Default Installation Directories
This determines the installation directory. You're free to pick the directory you wish. The default directories for each operating system are listed below.
C:\Program Files\Inductive Automation\Ignition
Gateway Service Name (Windows Only)
This field allows you to choose the service name of Ignition, as it appears in the operating system's service listing.
Allows which modules are included in your base installation. Your choices are Typical and Custom. The Typical option will use a select list of commonly used modules. The Custom option allows you to install specific modules. In most installations the Standard option will suffice, but do note you can always add modules and remove modules after the installation process.
Start Ignition Now
Once the installer finishes, you'll be provided with an option to start the Gateway immediately. In most cases this is the desired option. You would only opt out of this choice if you didn't want the Gateway to start once the installer finishes.
Once finished, a web browser will open, and start off the System Commissioning process.
Install As a Service (Linux and MacOS only)
Allows you to install Ignition as a service. For Windows systems, Ignition is installed as a service by default as it is a requirement for Ignition to work on a Windows server.
