Installing Jet Reports
All components of the Jet Excel add-in, the Jet Web Portal, the Jet Service Tier, and the Jet Dashboard Builder can be installed from a single installation program.
After downloading the installation set (from the Jet Reports Download site), right-click the downloaded file and select Extract All.
Navigate to the Jet Reports folder and open Jet Setup.exe
Within the installation program, you can choose whether to proceed with Client Components, Server Components, or All Components:
Client Components are those applications that typically reside on a local workstation. The Jet Excel add-in is a primary example of this.
Server Components are those items that typically reside on a server (for example: the Jet Web Portal and the Jet Service Tier).

Once you have selected the category of components, you will be able to choose the specific components you want to install.
Server components (Jet Service Tier and Jet Web Portal) should only be installed on only one server within an organization.
Client components (Jet Excel Add-In and Jet Administration Console) may be installed on any number of individual workstations.
(if you do not use the Jet Web Portal or the Jet Configuration Service included in the Jet Service Tier, you can simply choose Jet Excel Add-In and click Next to allow the installation of Jet Reports to proceed )
Jet Service Tier
You will need to specify the Account that will be used to run the service tier (Network Service is recommended):
and the name of the SQL Server instance and database name that will be used to store the service tier information
Next, you will need to specify some information needed by the Jet Web Portal - specifically: the secure IIS port number that will be used for communications on the server, the name of the server, the port number specified earlier for the Jet Service Tier, and the type of online storage that will be used by the Jet Web Portal for opening reports online.
Finally, enter the name of the server (and the port specified earlier - for confirmation) that will be used to host the Jet Service Tier.
Once all information has been entered, the specified components will be installed.
