GigaFlow should be installed on a Windows Server 2008+ 64bit platform, English edition.

Installation must be performed using a local Administrator account (not a domain admin account)

By default GigaFlow will install the following:

Oracle Java 1.8
Postgres 9.5
Gigaflow Service

When complete, a new service called "GigaFlow" will be running and enabled at startup of the server. The following shows the steps that the installer will go through to install GigaFlow:

This is the welcome page for the GigaFlow installer.

When you log in for the first time, you will be prompted for some information.

Server name is the name that you want to know this server as. It doesn't have to be the servers hostname. This name will appear in the web browser title bar. Minimum Free Space tells GigaFlow what the minimum free space that it should try to maintain on the disk (before purging old data). This should typically be 10% of your total disk space.
