Installing without an Internet Connection

ROBOTILL does not require an Internet connection to work. An internet connection however is needed if you install the ROBOTILL Server (the main or only computer). If you want to install ROBOTILL without and Internet connection or the ROBOTILL Wizard fails to download the SQL Server install file then you can follow the instructions below.

Download SQL Server Install File

You can download the install file from the ROBOTILL Website Download page or directly from Microsoft:
https://www.microsoft.com/en-za/download/details.aspx?id=42299
We recommend one of the following files for the install (you could look at the details section to choose another option):
  • Express 32BIT\SQLEXPR_x86_ENU.exe - Download this file if you have a 32 Bit System
  • Express 64BIT\SQLEXPR_x64_ENU.exe - Download this file if you have a 64 Bit System

To find out if you have a 32 Bit or 64 Bit computer, just type 'About' in your Windows search bar and press ENTER.

After you downloaded the SQL Server install file, copy the ROBOTILL install file and the SQL Server install file to the computer you want to install on. DO NOT RUN the SQL Server install file directly. The ROBOTILL Wizard will use the file to install SQL Server for you (with the correct settings).

Install the Server

Run the ROBOTILL install file and follow the same instructions as the normal install, but select 'I have already downloaded the SQL Install File' (see below).

Install SQL Server with no internet connection.

On the next page, click on 'Select the SQL Install File I downloaded'.

Select SQL Server Install File

The Wizard will then complete the install.
