For Windows, two types of installation methods exist. To download the required drivers for either method, click Set Up SuiteAnalytics Connect in the Settings portlet on your NetSuite home page.
Note: If the download link is not displayed, you need to enable the Connect Service.
After you downloaded the Connect driver, ensure that you install it as local administrator. If you install the driver on Windows as domain administrator, the installation process may fail.
- Driver Installation Bundle.The installation bundle is a .zip file that contains the installer together with a dsn.ini file. The dsn.ini file is automatically generated and contains parameters which are used by the installer to create the DSN. The dsn.ini file contains parameters which are reflecting the user context, for example, the role and the account that you used at the time you downloaded the .zip file. The user context data includes the Service Host, Account ID, and Role ID. Use this method if you want to use the driver to connect to your current account.
- Installer only.The installer does not include any user context data. You should use this method if you want to install the driver for other users. Installers are available only for the Windows operating system. The .exe file installs the driver and unpacks other distributable content (for example, the license and certificates) to the folder selected during the installation. For an ODBC driver, the installer also creates the DSN in the operating system unless you choose to skip this step.
