Installation Instructions

Depending on your version of PoreXpert, PoreXpert is supplied as a downloadable version or on a PoreXpert branded memory stick.
The Setup file is called "Setup.exe", double click on the setup file. The installer will install either the 32 or 64 bit version of PoreXpert, optimised for your computer system.
During the installation the installer will also install the Sentinel Hasp Drivers onto your system. These drivers allow the copy protection system to work. A demonstration copy of the software can be downloaded by clicking on the free trial button in the header and registering for a PoreXpert account.
The demo copies work with a software license that gives you a fourteen day trial of the software.
