Installing and Running DXLab Applications on Microsoft Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10, or Windows 11
DXLab applications will run on both 32-bit and 64-bit flavors of Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10, and Windows 11.
By default, the Launcher installs itself and the other DXLab applications in sub-folders of c:\dxlab. So installed, you can run any DXLab application while logged into a standard Windows user account without administrative privileges.
You can optionally direct the DXLab Launcher to install itself and the other DXLab applications in a folder of your choice, but be aware that the above versions of Windows prevent applications from modifying files that reside anywhere within protected folders:
- c:\program files
- c:\program files (x86)
If you direct the Launcher to install DXLab within these protected folders, you must override this prohibition before running any DXLab application by logging into an Windows account with Administrator privileges.
You may be prompted for an administrator password during the installation process.
Before running any DXLab application for the first time, configure your anti-malware and firewall applications to consider it "safe".
