PropView Download and Installation


The DXLab Launcher automates the process of downloading and installing DXLab applications like PropView:

If you prefer to manually download and install DXKeeper, follow this process:


Step Directions
1 Create the application folder in which PropView will reside, such as:


If you choose a folder within C:\Program Files or C:\Program Files (x86) on  Windows 7 or Vista,

  • If your PC is running Windows 7, login to an account with Administrator privileges to install or run DXLab applications
  • If your PC is running Vista, login to the account named Administrator  to install or run DXLab applications

Note: this pathname cannot contain the ampersand character &, or be deeper than 4 nested folders

2 In the application folder, create an installation subfolder in which the downloaded and extracted files will reside, such as:


3 Click here to download PropView130Archive.exe, a 2.3 MB self-extracting executable file that contains PropView and its associated files. When prompted, direct your browser to store this file into the installation subfolder you created in step 2. 
4 Run PropView130Archive.exe - in its WinZip Self-Extractor dialog box, direct it to place the unzipped files into the installation subfolder you created in step 2, and click the Unzip button. After extraction completes, click the Close button. The following files should now be present in the installation subfolder:
  • PropView130Archive.exe
  • setup.exe
  • Setup.lst
5 To install PropView, run the setup.exe program in the installation subfolder. Ignoring the setup program's request to close all running applications may result in error messages during the installation process, and possibly a faulty installation.

After copying several system files, the setup program may ask that you reboot your PC before continuing with the setup. If, after rebooting, your PC does not run setup.exe on its own, direct it to do so.

The setup program may report that the files being installed are older than files already installed on your system, and ask whether you want to over-write the existing newer files with the older files -- you should decline.

6 To execute PropView, run the program PropView.exe in the application folder.
7 After PropView is installed and you've verified that it works, you may delete the installation subfolder and the files it contains.
8 Check for access to the most recent Incremental Release

You can uninstall PropView by running the Add/Remove Programs applet on the Windows control panel.
