  1. Stop all Trend Micro services:

    Trend Micro Common CGI is no longer available in TMCM 7.0.
     
  2. On the the TMCM/Apex Central root folder, update systemconfig.xml by running the following commands:
    • XMLModify.exe "m_strWebServer_HostName" "10.1.25.10" "SystemConfiguration.xml"
    • XMLModify.exe "m_strLoopBackIP" "10.1.25.10" "SystemConfiguration.xml"
    • XMLModify.exe "m_uiWebServer_Port" "80" "SystemConfiguration.xml"
    • XMLModify.exe "m_uiWebServer_Https_Port" "443" "SystemConfiguration.xml"
  3. Update the following registry keys:
     
    Always back up the whole registry before making any modifications. Incorrect changes to the registry can cause serious system problems.
     

    HKLM\Software\TrendMicro\TVCS\ WebAddress = 10.1.25.10
    HKLM\Software\TrendMicro\TVCS\ WebPort = 80
    HKLM\Software\TrendMicro\TVCS\ SSLPort = 443

    If the server is 64-bit:

    HKLM\Software\Wow6432node\TrendMicro\TVCS\ WebAddress = 10.1.25.10
    HKLM\Software\Wow6432node\TrendMicro\TVCS\ WebPort = 80
    HKLM\Software\Wow6432node\TrendMicro\TVCS\ SSLPort = 443

    ServerName="10.1.25.10"

     
    CCGI_Config.xml is no longer available in TMCM 7.0.
     
  7. Update the shortcut of Start Menu:
