Installation Fast Track
You would typically automate this process.
Step 1: Patch Windows
Ensure that Microsoft Windows is fully patched. All Windows updates should be applied including root certificates.
Step 2: Deploy Binaries
- Log in to the computer as a local or domain administrator
- Unpack the FireDaemon Fusion OEM ZIP file to a temporary folder
- Create a target installation folder (e.g. C:\Program Files\FireDaemon Fusion OEM)
- Copy the binaries contained within the x64 folder to the installation folder
- Copy the folders contained within the common to the installation folder
The target installation folder (C:\Program Files\FireDaemon Fusion OEM) should now be as follows:
Step 3: Configure and run FFO
Open an elevated command prompt and type the following.
:: Change directory to the installation folder cd /d "C:\Program Files\FireDaemon Fusion OEM" :: Complete the initial product configuration fusioncli configure :: Replace <password> below with a strong password for the user: admin fusioncli admin <password> :: Create and start the FireDaemon Fusion OEM service fusioncli service create_start
FFO should now be able to point your browser at https://localhost:20604 running and ready for login.
Note: If FFO is installed on a system that has both FireDaemon Pro and FireDaemon Pro OEM services installed, then FFO will only enumerate and display the FireDaemon Pro OEM services.
Installing FFO Alongside Other Versions of FireDaemon Fusion
To avoid conflicts with current or future FireDaemon Fusion installations, FFO should never be installed on the same system as the retail version of FireDaemon Fusion.

Theming and Branding FFO
Simple FFO theme and brand changes can, to a limited extent, be achieved through careful modification of the
fusion-oem-ui.css file that is stored in the
\webapp\sstatic\css\ folder. Settings in this file will override the standard FireDaemon theme and brand settings upon start-up.
Note: Copyright notices and version numbers cannot be modified or removed, nor can the registry keys or digital signatures of the executables be modified.
