SOFTWARE INSTALLATION
System
Requirements
Minimum Hardware
Requirements
Windows XP / VISTA / 7 / 8 / 10
PC or laptop with CD-ROM
≥50 MB hard disk space to
install SE800024
Screen resolution ≥ 1024 x 768
Note…
Different computer systems may require slightly different
installation steps than those below.
1. The first most important step in software installation is to
verify that the target system meets the general hardware
requirements of the application. Beginning the installation in
a computer machine which does not possess the minimum
requirements can lead to either an unsuccessful installation
or failure of the program to run after installing it.
2. S
ince programs in general are written to be Operating
System dependent, make sure that the version of the
application you are installing corresponds to the Operating
System platform running on your machine.
3. Aside from the general hardware requirements, some
computer programs also have software requirements prior to
installation. Double check if you need to update or upgrade
your Operating System or if there is a need to download
other tools or utilities.
16
4. O
nce all the initial requirements have been met, make sure
that there are no unnecessary programs running before
beginning the installation procedure. In some instances,
applications may require that the antivirus programs be
disabled. Make sure that you are installing a legitimate
application before disabling your protection software.
5. S
oftware installation can be done either from the Internet
(skip to step 8) or from an installation disc provided by the
software manufacturer. To install from the disc, simply open
the CD or DVD drive and insert the installer.
6. A setup wizard window should be launched. In case there
is none, open the Explorer and navigate to the optical drive.
Double click on either the Autorun or Setup file.
7. O
nce the wizard is running, simply follow the prompts until
the installation process is completed. For novice users,
accept the default values to minimize potential problems
during the procedure. Jump to step 10.
8.For installation from the Web, launch your browser
application, Go to: www.sperdirect.com/software.htm, find
your meter, and download the setup file to your hard drive.
9. After completion of the downloading process, run the setup
program to execute the setup wizard that will handle the
automatic installation of the software. Do step 7.
10. After the installation procedure has been completed and the
setup wizard has terminated, reboot your machine before
launching the newly installed software.
