Installing the Vitra Configuration System
Installing the software
After you downloaded the package from our download page, it is stored in your download directory as a ZIP package. Navigate to the download directory. With your right mouse button, click on setup-vcs.zip and select the context menu entry Extract All.
By extracting a folder named setup-vcs is generated. Open the folder and run the program file start.exe.
The installation wizard opens. Read the license agreement and confirm it. Then click Next.
After confirming the license agreement a window with various settings follows. Pay close attention to the settings for the application language, currency and VAT. These are stored as default settings and can only be changed by the VCS team after installation.
The application path should not be adjusted for eventual future support cases. Click Next.
In the next window the installation wizard checks if VCS modules are already installed. In addition, it detects if AutoCAD is installed. If so, it proposes to install the appropriate version of pCon.xcad. Check whether all the modules that you want to install are selected, and then click Install.
You have the option to install only the Sales Configurator Enterprise or the pCon.planner ME. The pCon.update DataClient (automatically includes the module pCon.update Migration) must be installed in any case, since otherwise no OFML data (ie no Vitra products) can be installed.
The elements SCE Plugin ReportManager 2.8.6 and SCE Plugin VitraHeader 2.4.3 are part of the Sales Configurator Enterprise.
The installation process is automatic. After installation, it may happen that the computer must be restarted.
Installing the OFML data
Start the DataClient. This is located in the Start menu under All Programs → EasternGraphics → pCon.update.
After starting the pCon.update DataClient, it opens the Welcome screen. There you will find explanations on the functioning of the software. If you have read the information or have the DataClient used many times before, you can continue by clicking on Settings.
In the left pane of the window is the category Network → Server. Since the OFML data from Vitra is not located on the EasternGraphics server, but on a Vitra server, these credentials are not the ones that you might already use for other manufacturers. Instead, use the credentials from the Vitra Extranet.
Enter https://ofml.vitra.com as the server address. Username and password are identical to your extranet account.
To avoid losing the settings of Vitra, you can save them by clicking on the star and on Add to Favorites.... In the window that opens, you can customize the name and press OK.
Check Save password if you don't want to enter it again for every future update and then click OK to confirm.
You are now back on the welcome page. Click Next. As a result, you arrive at a list of the relevant and currently installed VCS applications.
Before you click Next, please ensure that all affected applications are closed. Available new data is then displayed in a list.
After selecting the data and confirming by clicking on Install, the installation of the product data is started. Depending on the speed of your computer and internet connection this can take some time. After successful installation the following message appears:
If you have problems or questions, please feel free to contact Vitra. Use the contact form or the Email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
