Commander Download and Installation

Important Note

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

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


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

C:\DXLab\CI-V Commander

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

C:\DXLab\CI-V Commander\Install

3 Click here to download Commander587Archive.exe, a 2.7MB self-extracting executable file that contains Commander and its associated files. When prompted, direct your browser to store this file into the installation subfolder you created in step 2.
4 Run Commander587Archive.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 appear in the installation subfolder:
  • Commander587Archive.exe
  • CI-V C1.CAB
  • CI-V C2.CAB
  • setup.exe
  • Setup.lst
5 To install Commander, run the setup.exe program in the installation subfolder.

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 Commander, run the program CI-V Commander.exe in the application folder. The program includes online help, but you can also view the documentation in the file Readme.txt, also located in the application folder.
7 After Commander is installed and you've verified that it works, you may delete the installation subfolder and the four files it contains.
8 Check for access to the latest development release

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