ezLINX™ Sample PC Application Installation Guide

Online Installation

Windows XP / Vista / 7

Step 1:
Download the Sample PC Application install files from the ezLINX Development Environment page (Figure 1 below).

Step 2:
Right click on ezLINXPCApp.zip and extract it.

Step 3 (Windows XP Only):
If you already have v4 or higher of the .NET Framework or Windows Imaging Component already installed on your machine, skip this step. Windows Imaging Component is required to install and use the Microsoft .NET Framework. This can be downloaded from http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=32 (Figure 2 below). For the English installer the file wic_x86_enu.exe should be downloaded and ran. This will install Windows Imaging Component on your machine.

Figure 2.

Step 4:
Run setup.exe found in the extracted ezLINXPCApp archive. Windows will warn that the software publisher can not be verified (Figure 3 below). Ignore this and select “Install”.

Figure 3.

Step 5:
The installer will then check that you have the necessary software on your machine to install the application. If you do not have the necessary software you will be prompted to accept the license agreement for the .NET Framework v4 and/or Windows Installer 3.1 (See Figure 4. below). Accept these license agreements and the required software will be downloaded and installed.

Step 6:
The ezLINX Sample PC Application will be installed (Figure 5 below). When the installer is finished the Sample PC Application will launch automatically.
