-<note warning>​This article will require some basic knowledge of computers, Network Configuration,​ and Windows Operating Systems +If you are installing pervasive on your server, you would download and run PSQL-Server-12.00.032.000-win.exe,​ and when you run it as an administrator,​ you would choose ​to Unzip on the first screen, then Install PSQL v12 Server Engine on the following menu.

-====== Where To Find The Installation Programs ====== +
- +
-The Installation Packages for Pervasive can be downloaded from our FTP. +
-You will need your Pervasive license key after you install Pervasive Server or Workgroup. Without this key the pervasive engine you install will be a trial version and will expire within 30 days. +

-|**Pervasive 12**|ftp://​ftp.windward-ca.com/​pub/​windows/​V12/​ | +
- +
-The Server installation packages for V11 and V12 (PSQL-Server-11.30.030.000-win.exe and PSQL-Server-12.00.032.000-win.exe) contain the server installation as well as the client installation,​ so you don’t have to download the client installer. +
- +
-To install a workgroup engine you must download the workgroup installation package. +
-|**Pervasive 11**|ftp://​ftp.windward-ca.com/​pub/​windows/​V11-Trial/​PSQL-Workgroup-11.20.013.000-win.exe | +

- +
-The full documentation for how to install pervasive 12 Server can be found here: +
-http://​wiki.wws5.com/​doku.php?​id=pervasive_12_install +
- +
-That document should only be used as a basic guide as it only shows the server installation. For the client or workgroup licenses the installation steps will be similar, but for those, just accept the defaults all the way through the installation. +

-{{:​install:​system5-pervasive:​1.jpg|}} +
- +
- +
-NOTE: +
-All versions of Pervasive V10 to V12 are both Trial Versions and full versions. +
-If you do not install the Pervasive key, they will all function as a trial version. Once you enter the key, they automatically switch to the fully licensed version. +

 Unless you have a specific need to install it in a very specific location, you can accept the defaults all the way through the installation.
