Starting and stopping Ricoh Visual Workbench

To use Ricoh Visual Workbench, you must start the user interface on a computer with an AIX, Linux, or Windows operating system.

If no console is attached to the computer where Ricoh ProcessDirector is installed, you can install an X Windows emulator (such as VNC) on a computer that runs the Windows operating system to emulate the AIX or Linux console.

To start the user interface:

  • On AIX or Linux:
    1. Log in to the computer as the Ricoh ProcessDirector system user (aiw1 is the default), or with a user ID that is a member of the Ricoh ProcessDirector group (aiwgrp1 is the default). You can also log in as the root user.
    2. If you did not log in as the Ricoh ProcessDirector system user, add these directories to your PATH environment variable:
      For example, enter this command on the AIX or Linux command line to add the directories:
      export PATH=/opt/infoprint/ippd/jre/bin:/aiw/aiw1/bin:$PATH
    3. Enter on the AIX or Linux command line to start the user interface.
  • On Windows:
    1. Log in to the computer as a user with Windows administrator privileges.
    2. Navigate to the directory where you installed Ricoh Visual Workbench. For example, the directory might be c:\aiw\aiw1\bin\.
    3. Double-click startVWB.bat.
To stop the user interface, do one of these:
  • Click File → Exit.
  • Click the X in the top right corner of the window.
