Content Player application installation. Follow the instructions below to download and run the scripted installer. Before proceeding, you should prepare the device for installation.
Each digital sign is licensed via an invite code. The invite code will be emailed to you from IU Digital Signage administrators after you complete the New digital sign request form. The email message will also include instructions for setting up the digital sign and installing the Content Player software. For existing licenses when a new PC has been rebuilt, you may request a new invite code by emailing email@example.com
Logged in as an admin, use this installer and these instructions. Use the BAT file for launching the installer. The install has 2 parts and a restart is needed - you will be prompted for the restart. Log back into the same account so the second part of the install can continue. It may take a few minutes after restart for the installation script to continue. IU SCCM also has this installer available through the software center.
In some setup scenarios, the installer script fails to automatically configure the proper network connection. In these cases you can manually configure the Content Player connection properties.
Two applications will be installed:
- Content Player: The application you use for displaying content on your digital sign.
- Content Player Configuration: Use this for setting connection properties and other parameters, such as the polling interval.
New invite Code needed
To force the appearance of the invite code dialogue for Content Player, completely wipe the cloud invite info by erasing the file located at: "%FWI%/Signage/Cloud/IoTSettings.json".
When launching Content Player again, a previously cloud licensed PC will prompt again for an invite code.
Completely re-install Content Player
Uninstall Content Player through the usual means in Windows. There may be some extra clean up to do. In the windows search, type in %fwi% - this will open up the Fourwinds folder in the documents>public folder. Navigate to the parent folder ‘public’ and delete the ‘four winds interactive’ folder. Do the same for %programdata%, but you won’t need to navigate up one folder in this instance. Note: It's possible that the uninstall will already take care of these folders.
