Procedure

Installing Radiator to Windows is a similar process to full source distribution installation. For more information, see Section 2.2. Installing from full source distribution.
Radiator works on Windows 7/8/8.1/10 and Server 2008/2012/2016. It also needs suitably configured Perl available. Make sure you have system administrator rights.
We recommend you to use the ActiveState Perl distribution ActivePerl or Strawberry Perl. For installation packages and support, see their websites ActiveState website Opens in new window, and Strawberry Perl website Opens in new window. The Active State port installs quickly and easily on all Windows platforms, and almost all the optional modules are readily available and easy to install.
Strawberry Perl is another Perl distribution for installing Radiator on Windows but with different packaging and support options.
Radiator comes with precompiled Perl modules required for <AuthBy LSA> authentication. <AuthBy ACE> and Digipass authentication require a separate binary module. If you require one of these authentication methods, it limits your choice of Perl version to install.
If you require RSA <AuthBy ACE> support, download Authen-ACE4 from CPAN and compile it for your chosen Perl distribution. For more information, see Section 2.1.2. CPAN. In case you need help with Authen-ACE4 setup, contact OSC.
If you require Digipass module for your chosen Perl distribution, contact OSC.
Radiator currently comes with precompiled modules for Win32-LSA that have been tested with ActivePerl up to version 5.22 and Strawberry Perl up to version 5.24.
