Install IFS Report Designer at customer¶
The IFS Report Designer is installed locally from the IFS Report Designer installation file SetupIFSReportDesigner.exe.
There is only one, backward compatible, tool. When new functionality is added to the tool, the tool should automatically update itself. If there is any trouble, just do a fresh install of the tool and the new functionality is there.
