I have installed Enterprise Library 3.1 in my development machine and tested. It is working fine. Now I want to install the enterprise library in the Production Server. In that production server we dont have any Visual Studio environment. We just have only .NET framework.

I have downloaded the Enterprise Library 3.1 package from Microsoft. Shall I double click on the msi file "Enterprise Library May 2007.msi" to install it in production?

After that for instrumentation I need to run the "InstallServices.bat" But I guess it will not work as the production does not  have any Visual studio environment.

Once I install the Enterprise Library Shall I use my own version of "InstallServices.bat"?

Yes you would need to install the ent lib on your production. For the instrumentation, I believe that it should work since that the instrumentation is not dependent on the visual studio.
