Go Up to PAServer, the Platform Assistant Server Application


To run the Platform Assistant on Windows:

After you install the Platform Assistant on your PC, follow these steps to run it:

  1. Start the Platform Assistant server. You can start it either from the Windows Explorer, graphically, or from a cmd window. If you use a cmd window, you can start the Platform Assistant with customized options; see Setting Options for the Platform Assistant.
    • To open the Platform Assistant from the Windows Explorer:
      1. Open the Windows Explorer, and navigate to the Platform Assistant installation folder.
        Tip: If you used the default installation path, go to the C:\Program Files (x86)\Embarcadero\PAServer\19.0 directory in your home folder.
      2. Double-click paserver.exe to start the Platform Assistant. A cmd window appears, displaying the Platform Assistant banner and a password prompt:
        Remote Profile password <press Enter for no password>:
    • To open the Platform Assistant from a cmd window:
      1. Open a cmd window, and run cd with the path to the Platform Assistant installation folder. For example:
        $ cd "C:\Program Files (x86)\Embarcadero\PAServer\19.0"
      2. Run the paserver.exe executable in that folder:
        $ paserver.exe
      The Platform Assistant banner is displayed, followed by a password prompt:
      Remote Profile password <press Enter for no password>:
  2. At the password prompt, choose one of the following:
    • To require a password for connecting to the Platform Assistant, enter a password of your choice, and press Enter.
    • If you do not want to require a password when you connect to the Platform Assistant, press Enter.

After you follow these steps, you see in the cmd window the following two lines:

Starting Platform Assistant Server on port 64211
>

The > command prompt indicates that the Platform Assistant is in "listening" mode on the specified port (64211 by default). You can run the h command (write "h" and press Enter) on the command prompt to see the list of available commands with a description. To quit the Platform Assistant, run the q command.

See Setting Options for the Platform Assistant if you wish to set any options for the PAServer.
