OpcUaStack provides different ways of installing.

Source Code

In order to compile and install the stack from the source code, you should meet the following requirements:

  • Compiler with C++11 support
  • CMake >= 2.8.9
  • Boost >= 1.54
  • OpenSSL >= 1.0.0

Linux (Ubuntu or Debian)

Ubuntu or Debian users can install the requirements by using apt-get command:

$ sudo apt-get install libboost-all-dev cmake libssl-dev  build-essential

The next step is the compilation of the source code and its installation. You should run in the root directory of the sources:

$ sh -t local

By default, the installation path is $HOME/.ASNeG. You can change it at any moment:

$ sh -t local -i /path/witch/you/prefer

Windows (Visual Studio)

Windows users should install all requirements manually.

In order to compile the project, you should install MSBuild Tools, then run in the environment which is suitable for your target platform (e.g. Native x86) the following command:

$ build.bat -t local

By default, the installation path is C:\ASNeG. You can change it by typing:

$ build.bat -t local -i C:\path\witch\you\prefer

Windows (MinGW)

The stack can be compiled with MinGW, but there is no build script for it up to now. You can build the source with cmake typing the following commands:

$ mkdir build_mingw
$ cd build_mingw
$ cmake -G"MinGW Makefiles" -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release ..\src
$ cmake --build . --target install

DEB Packages

The stack provides DEB packages, so you can install it into your Ubuntu or Debian. Download the last packages and install them by using dpkg command

If you need only the runtime to run your application, type:

$ sudo dpkg -i OpcUaStack-x.y.z-x86_64-bin.deb

For development, install dev packet too:

$ sudo dpkg -i OpcUaStack-x.y.z-x86_64-dev.deb

Also you can build DEB packets from source by using script:

$ -t deb

Your packets will be built in build_deb directory.

RPM Packages

Users of RPM Linux distributives can install the stack with RPM packages. The way is the same as for DEB packages. Download the last packages and install them by using rpm command:

$ sudo rpm -i OpcUaStack-x.y.z-x86_64-bin.rpm
$ sudo rpm -i OpcUaStack-x.y.z-x86_64-dev.rpm

MSI Packages

On Windows, the stack is available for installing with MSI packages. As DEB packets, the MSI packages belong to two kinds. The package, that ends with -Bin suffix, provides the stack and its dependencies (OpenSSL and Boost) and it is suitable to run user applications. If you are going to develop your own OPC UA user applications, you can use the development package (ending with -Dev suffix). This package installs not only the stack and its headers but the whole Boost and OpenSSL with headers. So you do not need to install something more.
