Once the ProtoTRAK software has finished copying over, you’ll see this screen. This lists all the necessary components needed to run our software. If this is your first time installing, then make sure all of the boxes are checked, and then click on Finish. No harm should come if you already have something installed. Note that the installer will automatically detect if you need 32 bit or 64 bit files.

After you click Finish, you should see a progress bar show you the status of each individual program installing. Note that if you are prompted to restart the computer, you can choose to restart later so that you can finish installing everything that is necessary.
If you have already installed the software previously and are simply updating to the latest version, then when you first run the installer, you will simply be prompted with the following window. The installer will copy the software into the same location where it was previously installed.

However, if you are updating from a version older than 2.5.4, then you will need to enable the check mark next to “Install Microsoft Visual C++ 2015-2022 library”. This is to ensure that the software has all the necessary files needed for newer features to work properly. Click on Finish to install this update.
