So we have Sitecore 9.2 available now, with Sitecore 9.2 we have two options to install : Sitecore Installation Framework (SIF) and Sitecore Install Assistant (SIA)

Sitecore Installation Framework (SIF) is the same old way to Install Sitecore since version 9, as part of this post i would like to go over the new way to Install Sitecore i.e using Sitecore Install Assistant (SIA)

So- let’s get started.

Step 1: Download the files (SIA)

You can download the Installation files from here- (Please login before downloading the files)sia-step1.png

Step 2: Create resources folder and extract the files there.

In my case i have created folder SIA under “D:\Deploy\SC9Install”sia-step2.png

Step 3: SIA Config Updates

Before you run and execute setup.exe file you can update some of the settings of SIA using setup.exe.config file and some of the settings which you can update are as follows:

  • SQL Server name
  • SOLR root
  • Solr Serverice

Step 4: Time for action

Right click on setup.exe and click on “Run as administrator” and you will be prompted with welcome screen where you will have basic details on what’s required to complete the installation successfully. Click on start and you will be navigated to prerequisites screen.sia-step4-1.png


Click on Install and wait for all the prerequisites to get installed.


Once all the prerequisites are installed you can see the below screen:

Click Next and populate SQL server details


In the next screen verify the SOLR details, if you have updated setup.exe.configfile with the SOLR details it will be pre-populated for you here:sia-step4-5.png

In the summary screen validate the details and make sure everything is correct.sia-step4-6.png

Next screen- validate if we are good to proceed for the installation.


Click on Install, it will take a while to install.sia-step4-8.png
