  2. Microsoft Visual Studio* with C++ 2019:
    Download Microsoft Visual Studio* build tools and install C++ related build tools (Desktop development with C++).
  3. Enable Hyper-V.
  4. Install Docker Desktop version 3.5.x and be sure it is in the Running state.
    Docker Desktop is required for installation of certain components that are dependent on Docker. If Docker Desktop is not running, the installation of the components below will fail:
    • Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit
    • AWS* IoT Greengrass Core
      in a container
    • EdgeX* Foundry
    1. Configure the Docker Desktop as follows:
      1. Set the CPU and Memory usage.
      2. Set the proxy.
      3. Disable the WSL engine.
    2. Restart the Docker Desktop application after changing the settings.

Step 1: Prepare the
Target System

This step is recommended. Installation of some modules and dependent Python packages may fail if similar modules were already installed due to dependency or version conflicts.
Make sure your target system has a fresh installation of Windows* that corresponds to the version of
Edge Insights for Vision
that you downloaded.
  1. Follow the steps from the Windows installation guide for a clean installation of Windows 10.
  2. Power up the target system and make sure an internet connection is available.
 

Step 2: Download and Extract the
Edge Insights for Vision
Software

In this step you download and extract the
edge_insights_vision.zip
file. You need to be on the
target system
to complete these steps.
Refer to Modules and Services for the complete list of supported modules. At download time, you can choose the recommended configuration or you can customize your download by selecting modules.
  1. Make sure you have a working Internet connection.
  2. Download the by selecting
    Windows 10
    in the Target System OS selector. Copy the downloaded zip file to the desired location. The download file name is
    edge_insights_vision.zip
    .
  3. Extract the package by right-clicking the file and selecting
    Extract all...

Step 3: Install the
Edge Insights for Vision
Software

If you are running behind a proxy server, please be sure that the proxy settings are configured correctly. The edgesoftware tool uses these proxy settings to download and install the modules.
In this step you run a script that downloads components and installs
Edge Insights for Vision
on your
target system
.
  1. Right-click on the
    edgesoftware.exe
    file and select
    Run as administrator
    to start the installation.
     
     
    This initiates the system check and installation of prerequisites like Python* 3.8.
     
     
    If the target system is behind a proxy network, the application will prompt for proxy settings.
     
     
  2. Click on the
    Set Up Proxy
    button, add the proxy setting details, and click
    Set Proxy
    . Then click the
    Retry
    button.
    The prerequisite software installation may take up to 15 minutes on a fresh system.
  3. The application will restart automatically (closes and restarts) to set the environment variables if it installs Python and git.
    The application may ask for a system restart if it fails to set and get Python and git environment variables.
    The completion time depends on your target system and Internet connection.
     
     
  4. Click the
    Next
    button.
     
     
  5. Select the
    Install
    Edge Insights for Vision
    option and click
    Next
    .
