Installing dcm4chee an Open Source PACS under Windows 7 with MySQL Database
Posted on November 22, 2009 by Wisam Al-Rawi

dcm4chee is an open source PACS software that can be used for storing, managing and retrieving medical images It fully implements the DICOM protocol designed for healthcare. It is written in Java programming language for versatility and performance. It can run under Windows, Mac OS, and Linux. It supports different databases such as: PostgreSQL, MySQL, Oracle, SQL Server..etc

dcm4chee can be integrated with PACS workstation software or viewers such as: OsiriX, K-PACS, ClearCanvasetc Since many dental professionals use Windows as their primary operating system it would be easier to install dcm4chee under Windows. In addition, compression libraries such as JPEG 2000 LS are still not available under Windows 64 bit and Mac OS. So we will use 32bit version of Windows as our servers operating system. We will be using Windows 7 since it is going to be the main stream operating system ; however, the tutorial should also work for Windows Vista or XP. MySQL database is an open source database and it is used by millions of users. In fact, Marcilan is powered by MySQL database. So we will use MySQL as our main database. Enough talk and take me to the tutorial! !

In this tutorial we will go in details and step by step installation of dcm4chee under Windows 7 Professional 32 bit and using MySQL database. Note: For full more detailed information for installation dcm4chee for different

operating system and databases, please refer to the link here

Minimum System Requirements:


JDK 6 or higher 512 MB RAM 200 MB hard disk space (additional to archive storage disk space) 400 MHz CPU

D O W NLO AD :
1. Download the latest binary of dcm4chee (currently v 2.14.7) from dcm4chee Source Forge repository. Select the version that matches the database we will be using dcm4chee-mysql-2.14.7.zip

2. Download the binary distribution of JBoss Application Server 4.2.3.GA from their website (Do NOT download v5 as it is incompatible!)

After clicking the download button, select jboss-4.2.3.GA-jdk6 which is compatible with Java Development Kit v6 (JDK6)

You can register to receive latest updates or skip the registration process.

5. Download the Audit Record Repository (ARR). The ARR maintains an audit log of all transactions within the archive. This is necessary for HIPAA and IHE. (If your country does not require HIPAA, you might want to skip this step). We will need to download the version that matches our database option (mysql). Download dcm4chee-arr-mysql-3.0.8.zip.

IN STAL LAT IO N : 1. Extracting the downloaded files and setting up the directories
Create a new folder in C:\ and rename it to apps. The directory path should look like this C:\apps Copy jboss-4.2.3.GA-jdk6.zip, dcm4chee-mysql-2.14.7.zip and dcm4chee-arr-mysql3.0.8.zip (if you have HIPAA or want to maintain ARR see step 5 of downloads above). Extract all of them into separate categories. Do them one by one.

After you finish extraction all of them, go into each folder, select the folder you see, right click>Cut or CTRL+X and hit Backspace or move to the previous directory and right click>paste or CTRL+V. Windows will complain that the same folder name exist. Click Yes to proceed. This will save us time navigating in the command prompt (avoid double directories). Do this for jboss-4.2.3.GA-jdk6.zip, dcm4chee-mysql-2.14.7.zip and dcm4chee-arr-mysql-3.0.8.zip (if you require HIPAA or want to maintain ARR see step 5 of downloads above).

The final folder structure should look like this

2. Copy files from JBoss to DCM4CHEE


Copy files from JBoss to dcm4chee. Dcm4chee consists of components that run within the JBoss application server platform. This step will copy the JBoss runtime files to the dcm4chee directory. Make sure that the JBoss folder name in C:\apps is jboss-4.2.3.GA before you continue. Navigate to: C:\apps\dcm4chee-mysql-2.14.7\bin Type: install_jboss.bat c:\apps\jboss-4.2.3.GA

3. Installing MySQL database and creating dcm4chee database


Install MySQL database and create dcm4chee database (Follow the screenshots)

Installing dcm4chee an Open Source PACS under Windows 7 with MySQL Database | Cone Beam CT (CBCT) | MARCILAN

The rest is the same as in Standard installation.

Now we need to create a database for dcm4chee. To do so we initiate the pacsdb database instance using dcm4chee-mysql-2.14.7/sql/create.mysql Go to command prompt and type: mysql -uroot -p Input your MySQL root password. Now you will get: mysql>

Type the following line by line including the ; at the end and press Enter key at the end of each line.
create database pacsdb; grant all on pacsdb.* to 'pacs'@'localhost' identified by 'pacs'; \q Then type: mysql -upacs -ppacs pacsdb < c:/apps/dcm4chee-mysql-2.14.7/sql/create.mysql

For more information, refer to dcm4chee MySQL database setup here

4. Deploy the Audit Record Repository (ARR)


Execute the command install_arr.bat in the command prompt in the bin directory of dcm4chee and include the path to dcm4chee-arr-3.0.8 as seen in the screenshot.

Click Ok. Now Reboot your Windows for changes (Environment variables) to take effect.

6. Launching DCM4CHEE
We are ready to test all the work we did previously. Go to command prompt again and navigate to dcm4chee-mysql-2.14.7/bin then execute run.bat

Allow access for Java through Windows Firewall

In the command prompt you will notice lines moving up quickly. (It might take a minute or two to finish loading). You shouldnt see any errors like access denied or couldnt create connection. Otherwise, something has gone wrong from the previous steps.

If everything is right you will see a window similar to this:

Check the last line. Started!!

I installed dcm4chee following these intructions but using 64 bit versions of mysql in a 64bit windows 7 computer. I used JDK 6 32 bit version, crossing my fingers that WOW (Windows on Windows) would work, in order to get JPEG2000 compression. The result: PERFECT! I have dcm4chee in a windows 7 64bit system working flaweslly, with compression of the images, which is just great. Hope this is useful information for any of you guys. Thanks Wisam for this great guide!

Thanks Ben for sharing this. It will help other people who are running 64bit version of Windows. Im glad it worked.

Wisam Al-Rawi on March 8, 2010 at 8:03 AM said:

Hi Salvo, you need to login to MySQL in order to use that command. You cant do it directly from the command prompt. Start from here: Go to command prompt and type: mysql -uroot -p Input your MySQL root password. Then enter the following commands: create database pacsdb; grant all on pacsdb.* to pacs@'localhost identified by pacs; \q Then type:

I have tried installing DCM4CHEE and now I am unable to login ( URL: http://localhost:8080/dcm4chee-web ). In installation document on DCM4CHEE website, the username and password is mentioned ?admin? and ?admin?; which however is not working in my scenario. I think, there is something wrong with configuration which I might have changed unintentionally.I have already checked the file login-config.xml at C:\apps\dcm4chee-mysql-2.14.7\server \default\conf .

Wisam Al-Rawi on March 29, 2010 at 8:36 AM said:

This happened to me too when I first tried to install dcm4chee. The issue was the database for dcm4chee was not setup properly. If you check the console window (DOS or Command window) you will see error messages that can explain to you what went wrong. However, in my case, when I did the database steps it worked and the console window stopped showing error messages. So far many people managed to install dcm4chee successfully following the tutorial on this page.

on March 30, 2010 at 8:28 AM said:

Hi, I know, this is exactly what happened to me. The page will load but when you put the default username and password they wont be accepted. The main reason for that is that the data base for dcm4chee is not setup properly so it doesnt have the default username and password in the database. Please try to do the database setup again and test. Read below: Now we need to create a database for dcm4chee. To do so we initiate the pacsdb database instance using dcm4chee-mysql-2.14.7/sql/create.mysql Go to command prompt and type: mysql -uroot -p Input your MySQL root password.

engr.nauman on March 31, 2010 at 1:55 AM said:

@Wisam Al-Rawi i have done this step accurately and also check the database . but after this step mysql -upacs -ppacs pacsdb < c:/apps/dcm4chee-mysql-2.14.7 /sql/create.mysql i m seeing this error (although the path is valid). The system cannot find the path specified. please guide

Ok thats good! Now we know whats the problem and again it has to do with the database creation. The error message youre getting tells you that the path is not correct. It is easy to find the path. Just go to Computer (or My computer in Windows XP) and navigate to C drive> then apps folder> then dcm4chee-mysql2.14.7>then sql> now you should see a file called create.mysql. Since the path is not correct then one of those folders will have a different name. Once you get to creat.mysql file, copy the path from the top of the window by clicking on the empty space in the address bar to reveal the full path, then paste the path in the command window by right clicking and selecting Paste. Good luck.

I get this error: Echo dicom://DR.PACHO@172.20.189.3:3002 failed: java.net.SocketTimeoutException: Read timed out On the OSIRIX I get the following error when trying to send studies: Error al Envar DICOM Operacin DICOM StoreSCU fall. DICOM Network Failure (storescu) Association Rejected 0006:0301 DUL Association Rejected My config looks like this: SERVER: (default) AET: DCM4CHEE hostname:pacsweb port:11112 cypher: (no cypher set/blank) issuer:DCM4CHEE user id:(no user id set/blank) FS Group: (no FS Group ID set blank) Description: This DCM4CHEE archive instance OSIRIX: AET: DR.PACHO hostname:172.20.189.3 port:3002 cypher: (no cypher set/blank) issuer:DR:PACHO user id:(no user id set/blank) FS Group: (no FS Group ID set blank) Description: Estac. Dr Pacho But AETs are set correctly, same as port, and IP. Im using the IP instead of the hostname. When using the NET VIEW command on windows I cannot see the IMAC running OSIRIX, just the windows machines. Does anyone have any idea? Im stucked here!

Hi, Are you doing the same extremely well explained guide to install dcm4chee on Mac OS X ? Because there is no simply explication for installation on Mac and you have the best ever explanation for Windows. I think that it could be very helpfull for many users!

Dear Wisam Al-Rawi thank you for the instructions on my first install i now have over 10,000 x ray studies in my dept within the dcm4chee pacs. the problem is every word and picture you have put up has to be followed. Now the current version of Dcm4chee is 2.17 the version you have given is 2.14. there are probably many bugs that have been fixed, is there any chance you could either just make an addon to this on how to install using 2.17 or upgrade from .14 to .17. The guide is over 2 or 3 years old now.

Hi, thank you so much for this tutorial! I just installed all of this on a XP system and went flawlessly! I installed the latest version, 2.17.1. The only difference I found was accessing the web interface. The solution was readily found in the forums: The old dcm4chee-web interface is deprecated since 2.17.1 and is replaced with dcm4chee-web3! (use URL like http://localhost:8080/dcm4chee-web3/ as mentioned in INSTALL file) You can download and install the old web interface from sourceforge (extra folder in 2.17.1 download page) But this would only be necessary if you really need either GP worklist console or Offline storage! Thanks again for all your help!

The help found on the dcm4chee site is not that easy to perform the task for me. Please guide. Thanks in advance. JD
