Installing the Software Repository
The Software Repository is another important component of WDM . The packages to be deployed on the

To install the software repository:
1. Extract the contents of the WDM installer on the system where you want to install WDM.
2. Navigate to the folder where you have extracted the installer and run Setup .exe.
The Welcome screen is displayed.
3. Click Next.

the license key in the space provided.
