Stored procedures
To use the telemetry, you must install on a computer:
  • The computer where the telemetry server is installed must be a Web server. A Web server (IIS, Apache, ...) must be installed on the computer.
  • The HFSQL server and the telemetry server can be installed on two different computers.
  • The telemetry server can be installed on a Web server that is hosting a WEBDEV Application Server.
  • Caution: The telemetry does not operate with the non-transparent proxies.
Installing an HFSQL server

HFSQL server setup

The HFSQL server setup program is available in the WINDEV or WINDEV Mobile setup package. If you do not own this setup package, the HFSQL server setup can also be found in our site (
To install the HFSQL server from the WINDEV/WINDEV Mobile setup package:
  1. Start the WINDEV/WINDEV Mobile setup program.
  2. Select "HFSQL server setup".
  3. Then, select "Install or update an HFSQL server".
  4. Accept the license agreement.
  5. Select a platform ("For Windows on this computer").
  6. If there are HFSQL servers already installed on the current computer, select "Install a new server".
  7. Select the installation directory and specify the server name and port. The port 4900 will be used by default.
  8. Specify the login credentials of the user with administrator privileges that will be created by default on the HFSQL server. By default, this user is "Admin" and has no password.
  9. Install (if necessary) the HFSQL Control Center if this one is not found or accessible from your computer.
  10. The wizard prompts you to configure the sending of notifications to identify server problems in real time. Select the desired option.
  11. The wizard allows you to enable the Active Directory authentication. Enable this option if necessary.
  12. You can help us improve by allowing us to collect information regarding the use of our products. This optional and anonymous collect allows PC SOFT to improve the product features.
  13. The installation is completed. By default (if you have not changed the administrator settings), to connect to the server in administrator mode, you must use the "Admin" user without password.
    Note: For security reasons, don't forget to change the administrator password.
Installing a telemetry server
The telemetry server is a WEBDEV application server intended for the telemetry.
To install the telemetry server:
  1. Run the installation package of the reserved server (WX2024PACKRSRV.exe file available in the "Install\WDRServer" subdirectory of the WINDEV installation directory).
  2. If necessary, select the installation language..
  3. Validate the license.
  4. Select the module to install: "Install the telemetry server (WDAnalytics)".
    Install the telemetry server
    Go to the next step.
  5. If necessary, select the version of the reserved application server to be installed (32 or 64-bit). Go to the next step.
  6. Select the installation directory.
    Install the telemetry server
    Go to the next step.
  7. Specify the characteristics of the HFSQL server used for the telemetry (installed beforehand):
    Install the telemetry server
    • Name of the HFSQL server,
    • Port.
    • Name and password of administrator of HFSQL server. This information is required to automatically configure the telemetry database and the associated user.
  8. Test the connection to check your parameters.
  9. Indicate the parameters specific to the database used by the telemetry:
    • the name of database intended for the telemetry (TLM by default).
    • the name of the user who is administrator of telemetry and his password.
  10. This database and its user will be automatically created.
  11. Go to the next step.
  12. Specify the first day of the week. This information will be used to perform statistical calculations on a weekly basis.
    Install the telemetry server
  13. Validate.
  14. The wizard checks if there is a Web server on the setup computer.
    • If no web server is installed on the setup computer, the wizard prompts you to install and configure one to use the telemetry server.
    • If there is a web server on the setup computer, the wizard prompts you to configure it to use the telemetry server.
  15. At the end of setup, the wizard shows the telemetry login credentials. Copy and store this information. These login and password must be used to connect to the telemetry server from WINDEV or WINDEV Mobile.
    Important: The reserved server settings are stored in the following file: "C:\ProgramData\WDAnalytics\WDAnalytics.default.xml"
    This file must be added to the server backup plan. This file will have to be restored if the server is reinstalled or duplicated on a new physical or virtual machine with the same settings.
  16. Finish the wizard.
  • If the database name is incorrect, you can restart the setup of the telemetry server in order to specify the correct database name while keeping the identifiers.
  • A telemetry server in version 2024 is compatible with Windows applications compiled with earlier versions (21, ...).
Minimum version required
  • Version 21
