Talend Installer prerequisites

Prior to launching the Talend Installer, confirm you followed these prerequisites:

    Available in:

    Big Data

    Data Integration

  • you have downloaded the Talend-Tools-Installer-YYYYYYYY_YYYY-VA.B.C-installer.zip file that contains a folder.

    In the folder that you will extract, you will find a dist file and executable files corresponding to the supported operating systems.

    For Windows, use Talend-Tools-Installer-YYYYYYYY_YYYY-VA.B.C-windows-x64-installer.exe.

    In the file name, YYYYYYYY_YYYY is the timestamp and A.B.C is the revision level (Major.Minor.Patch).

  • Available in:

    Big Data Platform

    Data Fabric

    Data Management Platform

    Data Services Platform


    MDM Platform

    Real-Time Big Data Platform

  • you have downloaded two files, a Zip and a dist file, which are both stored in the same directory.

    In the Zip file that you will extract in this directory, you will find executable files for every supported operating system.

    For Windows, use Talend-Installer-YYYYYYYY_YYYY-VA.B.C-windows-x64-installer.exe

    In the file name, YYYYYYYY_YYYY is the timestamp and A.B.C is the revision level (Major.Minor.Patch).

  • you have downloaded the license file from your license email, with no file extension.
  • JRE 1.8.0 or higher is installed on the machine on which you want to install the Talend modules.

    Note: With JRE, make sure the jvm.dll file is located in your JRE directory under the bin\server\ folder.
  • your firewall is configured to authorize connection requests.


Talend Installer allows you to get out-of-the-box Talend solutions that do not require any manual installation. However, these solutions are not provided in a production-ready environment as they may require additional configurations or optimizations according to your specific needs.

For example, you may want to change the MySQL database that is embedded by default in Talend Administration Center with your own database (PostgreSQL or Oracle for example). If you do this, you need to install the driver for the relevant database. For more information, see Installing database drivers in your Web application server.

Tip: Talend Installer is used only for first installations of Talend solutions. For more information about the migration and upgrade processes, see Talend Migration and Upgrade Guide.

Talend Studio Installer prerequisites

Talend Studio Installer is a convenient way of installing your Talend Studio. As it comes with an embedded Java Environment, you can install it directly from the installer.

Prior to launching the Talend Studio Installer, confirm you followed these prerequisites:

  • Download the TalendStudio-A-B-C-windows-x64-installer.exe file.

When installing Talend Studio, either using the installer or manually, a minimal version with some basic Data Integration features is installed. After Talend Studio installation, to use those features that are not shipped with Talend Studio by default, you need to install them through the Feature Manager. For more information, see Installing and updating Talend Studio and Managing features in Talend Studio.

Talend provides monthly updates that contain new features and bug fixes for Talend Studio. After installing Talend Studio, you can configure how to update it. For more information, see Updating Talend Studio.

Warning: Make sure that the path of your installation directory and that of your workspace directory contain no space or special characters, which may cause Talend Studio to fail to work because of JVM compatibility issues.
