    Riva cannot be run from a network drive (UNC path or mapped drive). Install Riva to a local drive on the Windows system that will host the Riva server. The Riva installation consumes additional hard drive space after installation when configuration, policy files, log files, and transaction records are created. Many customers extract the Riva files to an additional data drive. The folders below are for a Windows system with a single hard drive.

    By default, Riva is installed to C:\Riva.

  6. Browse to the target extraction folder determined at step 5, and create desktop shortcuts for the following files:

    • Riva.exe: Name the shortcut “Riva Manager”.
    • "Riva Service Monitor.cmd": Name the shortcut “Riva Service Monitor”.

Check for Updates
