To open the ArcIMS Installation Guide, launch the DVD menu and click 'ArcIMS Installation Guide'.
ArcIMS 3.1, 4.0, 4.0.1 or 9.0 must be uninstalled to install ArcIMS 9.1. The setup program for ArcIMS 9.1 on Windows prompts for the removal of previously installed versions.
If ArcIMS components are distributed among several computers, it is recommended the uninstall program be manually run on each computer.
A supported Web server and Servlet Engine must be properly installed and configured before running the setup program for ArcIMS 9.1.
