      Description

      Currently, installation procedure on Windows is quite complex with many chances to make a mistake.

      We should have either or both:

      1) Script which would check sanity of the environment before installation.
      2) A script which would install EWS from extracted ZIP, wherever it is.
      3) Script which would test the installed EWS.

      Ad 1) - would check:

      • whether it is running under Administrator,
      • Java vendor and version in JAVA_HOME,
      • whether EWS, or standalone httpd or Tomcat, is not already installed,
      • whether the default ports are not in use (and WARN if they are),
        etc.

      Ad 2) - would:

      • copy the files where they should be,
      • run the post-install script
      • eventually ask whether user wants to install httpd / Tomcat as a service, and if so, which Tomcat.

      Ad 3) - would

      • Start / stop apache (service if installed in 2), check for return code.
      • Start / stop tomcat (service if installed in 2), check for return code.
