Installing the DXLab Launcher

If you've never installed the DXLab Launcher on your PC, visit http://www.dxlabsuite.com/download.htm and click the First Time Install button. When the following window appears, click its Run button:

A download progress window like this one will appear while the file is being downloaded:

If this window or one like it should appear, click its Run button:

The next window informs you that the DXLabLauncher Setup program will run, after which the Launcher itself will start. The abbreviated captions on the Launcher's buttons are expanded here so you'll know which button to click to install the desired DXLab application. Before proceeding, its best to terminate any other applications running on your PC; this prevents conflicts when installing shared files. When you're ready, click the OK button:

Several windows will flash by while the DXLabLauncher initializes. You should have already terminated any other running applications, so click the OK button:

Before clicking the Install button in the window below,

  1. leave the create desktop shortcut... box checked unless you don't want a desktop shortcut to the Launcher created; a desktop shortcut makes it easy to start the Launcher, which in turn can start any DXLab application, so most users will leave this box checked

  2. leave the start DXLabLauncher... box checked

  3. since you're already viewing Getting Started with DXLab, uncheck the Show Getting Started... box

  4. if you want to install the Launcher in a folder other than the one shown in the Directory panel, then click the Change Directory button and select the desired destination folder

  5. when you're ready, click the Install button

Placing start menu entries for DXLab applications in a group named DXLab Suite is recommended, so just click this window's Continue box:

http://www.dxlabsuite.com/Wiki/Graphics/Install-7.jpg

DXLabLauncher Setup will now install the Launcher, displaying its progress as it proceeds:

When the DXLabLauncherSetup completes, click the OK button:

http://www.dxlabsuite.com/Wiki/Graphics/Install-9.jpg

The DXLab Launcher will now start. Since no other DXLab applications are installed, the LED-like display above each of the Launcher's application control buttons are shown in black.

To install an application, click the appropriate Launcher button:

  • cmd - Commander ([:TransceiverControl:transceiver control])

  • dxk - DXKeeper ([:Logging:logging])

  • dxv - DXView ([:DXInfo:DX information and [:RotatorControl:antenna rotator control])

  • pf - Pathfinder ([:QSLRouteDiscovery:QSL route discovery])

  • pv - PropView ([:Propagation: Propagation Prediction])
