Validate the TIBCO Spotfire Server Installation
Let’s validate all aspects of your TIBCO Spotfire Server installation by completing the following tasks:
- Stage the Demo Data and install the Spotfire Professional client.
- Log in to the Spotfire Professional client.
- Import content to the library.
- Connect to a data source.
- Open content from the library.

Part 1: Stage the Demo Data
Copy Administrator Essentials\Installers\Spotfire Server\demodata\mssql\demo.part0.zip to C:\tibco\tss\4.5\tomcat\application-data\library.
Part 2: Install the Spotfire Professional Client
1. Check the version of Spotfire Professional Client you are installing.
You must have Administrator rights to install Microsoft .NET.
If you do not have .NET installed, the Spotfire Professional installer will install it if you accept this option, and if you do not have an existing version of Spotfire on the machine. (To upgrade, you must install .NET separately.)
For the version of the .NET Framework required for your installation, see the Spotfire Server requirements Web page, http://support.spotfire.com/sr.asp
2. Browse to Administrator Essentials\Installers\Spotfire Deployment Kit\Products\TIBCO Spotfire Installer and double-click setup.exe.
3. When prompted for a Server URL, type http://localhost:9090.
4. Click Finish to complete the installation.
Part 3: Import the Demo Data
1. Open the Spotfire Professional client. Select Start > All Programs > TIBCO > TIBCO Spotfire (show login dialog). In the login dialog, for Username and Password, type sfadmin.
- In the Spotfire client, from the menu, click Tools > Library Administration.

5. Select demo.part0.zip and click OK.
6. In the Import dialog, click OK.
- In the Select Destination Folder dialog, click OK.
8. If the import is successful, you will see the following log. Click Close to complete the process.
9. You can now close the Library Administration window.

- In the Data Sources pane, right-click Demo Data, and from the menu, select Edit
- In the Data Source properties dialog for Demo Data, set the Connection URL as follows:
- Change <host> to localhost (remember to remove the angle brackets).
- Change the port number to 1433.Your Connection URL should now read:
- Change both the Username and Password to spotfire_demodata.
- Save your changes and close the dialog.
- From the main menu, click File > Open From > Library.

You have now validated the Spotfire Server installation by opening content from the library and streaming data to Spotfire Professional from the Spotfire Server.
