  1. Use the Microsoft Visual C++ 2015-2019 Redistributable

    The PI Vision install kit currently includes the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable 2015, 2017, and 2019. There is a version available that combines these versions (https://support.microsoft.com/en-ca/help/2977003/the-latest-supported-visual-c-downloads). Please include this version with the PI Vision install kit instead. This should make the PI Vision install kit a bit smaller and shrink the list of included programs.

    Of course, if the dependence on the 2015 and/or the 2017 version is eliminated, then it would be better to not implement this suggestion.

  2. Allow installer to (optionally) bypass Certificate checks

    In nearly all installations in the last three years we have restrictions on the servers where we need to install the SSL certificates, that make it impossible to verify the validity (e.g. no access to revocation servers).
    The certificate is accepted by clients as those have different authorisations.

    I would like to optionally bypass the certificate checks in the PI Web API Configuration utility to allow using certificates that cannot be validated. This will save a lot of time to bypass the utility and manually remove and bind a certificate.

    This enhancement request was included in PI Vision 2020. On a clean install, the setup kit will create a self-signed certificate, and apply it to the target IIS web site where PI Vision is being installed. On upgrade, where the previous version already had a certificate set for the PI Vision site, that certificate is used for the new version’s PI Vision web site.

    For additional information on PI Vision 2020, please see the release announcement here:

  3. PI Vision install kit should prompt to set app pools users

    The PI Vision install kit should allow the user running the installation to set the users that the application pools (PIVisionAdminAppPool, PIVisionServiceAppPool, PIVisionUtilityAppPool) run as.

    Particularly when upgrading to PI Vision 2019, a new app pool is created but by default it will run as Network Service, which may not be the desired account or the same account that the other app pools are running as.

  4. Automatically enable all necessary Roles and Features

    The PI Vision installation kit should enable all necessary roles and features to streamline the installation process. Currently, the "Web Server" role must be manually installed prior to running the PI Vision installation kit.
