​​​How do I install the BitTitan SDK?

Answer:

The BitTitan SDK gives you access to the BitTitan Command Shell and Management Console, which are used to perform and automate many tasks for MigrationWiz.

  1. Before installing the BitTitan SDK, make sure that you have installed the programs listed below.
    • Microsoft Windows Management Framework 4.0, including Windows PowerShell 4.0
    • Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6.2 or later.
  2. ​​Download and run the BitTitan PowerShell Setup file.   Note: You may be prompted to uninstall previous versions of the BitTitan SDK, which might be installed as "MigrationWiz PowerShell" or "BitTitan PowerShell." Uninstall those before continuing with the fresh installation.
  3. Follow the install wizard promps until finished. The BitTitan Command Shell and Management Console are accessible within the BitTitan folder in the Windows Start menu. The BitTitan SDK is updated frequently, so return to this page periodically to download and install the latest version.

 

​Notes:
  • For more information about the BitTitan SDK, see https://www.bittitan.com/developers.
  • The BitTitan PowerShell SDK has now been implemented as a PowerShell module. PowerShell Package Management provides a seamless experience for installing and managing third-party binaries directly from the PowerShell console using a series of simple cmdlets.  Partners should find installing, upgrading, and interacti​ng with the SDK as a PowerShell module quicker and easier than the tradition .msi package.
  • Supplemental information around PowerShell Package Management can be found in the associated MSDN documentation. 
  • The following Technet article outlines some additional helpful background information, and support for down-level operating systems.

 

Package Management is available by default on Windows 10, and can be supported on all versions of both the client and server operating system down to Windows 7/Server 2008 R2, by installing the newest versions of the Windows Management Framework (referenced in TechNet article above).

If the BitTitanPowerShell SDK was previously installed using the deprecated .msi package, we suggest uninstalling it before proceeding to prevent confusion.  If there's a need to keep the deprecated package installed for legacy scripts, feel free to do so as it should not present any conflicts with the new package.
