Installing Infovark should feel familiar to anyone that’s installed a Windows application before. But if this is your first time installing a software application, or if you’d like a detailed explanation of what our installer does, this article is for you.
You can run the Infovark Installer file by double-clicking on it with the mouse. On Windows Vista or Windows 7, you may see the following screen.
This screen confirms that you want to run the Infovark installation. Windows recognizes the name of the program (Infovark) and the name of the company that produced it (Infovark, Inc.). This is both a security measure and a quality-control measure. You know that the installation file was produced by Infovark, that the file has not been tampered with in any way, and that any bugs you find are completely the fault of Infovark, Inc.
Our Installation file is compressed. The program we use to create the installer, InstallAware, has to unpack the data before the installer program can run. This may take a few minutes.
If you are running Windows XP or Windows Vista, we may need to update the Microsoft .NET Framework on your computer. This can take a very long time — sometimes half an hour or more — so if you see this screen, you may want to settle back in your chair and relax a bit.
Sometimes Windows will prompt you to reboot during this process. Don’t worry; that’s normal.
After we’ve gotten all the prerequisites out of the way, you’ll see the following screen.
The next two screens are a bit dull, but you should probably look through them anyway. The first is the Infovark license agreement, shown below.
Now we’re ready to select how Infovark will be installed on your machine. We’ve streamlined the options to a single checkbox. Ticking the box will add an Infovark shortcut to your desktop and pin it to your start menu and taskbar.
With the installation options out of the way, we’re ready to begin the installation. Here’s one last screen to confirm that you’re ready to go.
The Infovark installer should run automatically. The green bar will tell you how much progress the installation program has made.
Once the install routine has finished its work, you’ll see the following screen.
You can choose to run Infovark immediately after the installation program closes, or you can choose to run it later. Congratulations! You’ve finished installing Infovark.
