To install Automation Anywhere Control Room in Custom Mode, follow these steps.


  1. Extract all files from the Automation_Anywhere_Setup.zip file.
  2. Double-click the AAE_MSSQL_Express_2014SP1.exe.
    The installation process creates the SQLEXPRESS instance that is used for the Control Room and the Bot Insight databases. The installation process uses this instance to create a database with the name CRDB_NEW and configures the database as the default Control Room database.
  3. Right-click the Automation Anywhere setup file and select Run as administrator.
    The installation process checks for supported operating system and for minimum hardware requirements and shows the following message if the requirements are not met:
    This system does not meet the minimum OS or hardware requirements for installing Automation Anywhere Enterprise. 
    If you continue installation, some of the product features might not work as expected. 
    NOTE: Refer Control Room Installation Prerequisites topic for minimum system requirements.
