    Hi Ka Wing Chiu,

    Thank you for reaching us via our Community Forums!

    By default, all the BarTender companion applications will be installed except Print Portal in BarTender 2021. You can optionally install Print Portal or the Licensing Service/Administration Console only. Additionally, BarTender 2021 can be installed as a 32- and 64-bit application.

    So, in short, BarTender Designer must be installed with the full BarTender Designer Suite, there are no options for installing individual apps.

    You can find more information on the subject on the following links:

    Getting Started with BarTender
    Installing BarTender 2021

    That being said, BarTender's versions are backward compatible, if you require a BarTender Designer only install in your BarTender environment, you can always download BarTender 2016, as its architecture allows for a BarTender Designer only installation. However, keep in mind two versions of BarTender cannot coexist in the same workstation, as the versions of Bartender use the same Registry Keys and the same System File location and one version will override the other when you try to install more than one version of the software.

    I hope this helped and let us know if there is anything else we can help you with.

    Since this post is 2 years old: has this situation changed?

    I am also looking for a BarTender 'LITE' installation (ActiveX use only, or Bartender designer exe only, or PrintStation only) ?

    Especially on RDS servers, I do not want to install the full suite when only PrintStation for ad-hoc label printing is required.

    In other scenarios, I just need the ActiveX integration to print a label from ERP software.
    To avoid the full suite installation, I now have to move these label processes to a BarTender Integrations process on a server.

    I do not believe so.

    However, if the users just need to be able to print then, from Professional edition upwards in 2022, you can use the Print Portal application which runs as a web printing application. This would mean no software is needed to be installed on the computers where no design functionality was needed.
