Installation / Update
Installing SWISSLOG is very easy. Just download the latest available version from the official Swisslog web site then run the setup program and follow the on screen instructions. If you have already installed version 5.2 or upper the installer will update your Swisslog program to the latest version.
If you have installed a version prior to 5.2, you can't upgrade directly. Please send a copy of your database (indicating your Swisslog version) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
NOTE: It's strongly advisable to disable temporarily any antivirus software before installing Swisslog. Also add an exception to Swisslog in your antivirus and firewall after installation. Some of them tend to block/slow down normal functioning of Swisslog.
IMPORTANT WINDOWS VISTA / 7 / 8 / 8.1 / 10 USERS :
There is no need to run Swisslog as administrator, UNLESS one of the following conditions apply:
You are running as administrator any of the associated programs used with Swisslog (i.e: OmniRig, Ham Radio de Luxe, DX Lab commander, MixW, FLDIGI, WSJT-X, etc.)
You are installing Swisslog in the "Program Files" folder instead the default “Swisslog” root folder. THIS is not recommended at all! However, if you still want to install Swisslog in the Program Files folder, you MUST follow strictly these steps:
You need to disable UAC (User Account Control). This is necessary otherwise your system won't work with the C:\Program Files\Swisslog" folder but a copy located in the VirtualStore folder! These are the real locations according the Windows edition used:
C:\USERS\YOURUSERNAME\APPDATA\LOCAL\VIRTUALSTORE\PROGRAM FILES\SWISSLOG (32 bits edition)
C:\USERS\YOURUSERNAME\APPDATA\LOCAL\VIRTUALSTORE\PROGRAM FILES (x86)\SWISSLOG (64 bits edition)
To disable UAC type UAC into the Start menu or Control Panel search box, enter the "User Account Control Settings" option then drag the slider all the way to the bottom (Never notify). Press OK and reboot your computer.
If any of the above conditions apply:
Mouse right click on the Swisslog desktop icon, select Properties / Compatibility and check “Run this program as administrator”.
DO THE SAME in the executable file from all associated programs with Swisslog: OmniRig, Ham Radio de Luxe, DX Lab commander, MixW, FLDIGI, WSJT-X, etc.
