Preparing your system and installation (+/- 4 hours)
*It is imperative that you consult your IT team prior to installing any software or
attempting to amend any settings on your computer. Administrative rights are based on
a profile created by your System Administrator; therefore a plethora of variances are
possible and these ‘rights’ may not necessarily allow you to install software properly.
1. Disable the UACs (set to ‘Never notify’)
2. Disable the anti-virus software
3. Disable pop-up blocker in the browser you are utilizing
(These settings may be re-enabled once the software is installed and operational.)
4. Ensure you have permissions to install USB drivers for any Android, Robotics
or other devices which will connect to the computer via USB.
