Installation on Windows

for Windows 2000, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008 (32 and 64 bit), Windows XP (32 and 64 bit), Windows Vista (32 and 64 bit), Windows 7 (32 and 64 bit), Windows 8.x (32 und 64 bit), Windows Server 2012 (64 bit) and Windows 10 (32 und 64 bit).

Note: it is recommended to deinstall any older NumericalChameleons.

The NumericalChameleon Installer for Windows requires administrator permissions. The installer copies all required files to the folder that you have specified during the installation process. The installer creates menu items to the start menu and it creates an launch icon on your desktop, it adds the NumericalChameleon to the software list on Windows and it creates an uninstaller which you can use to remove the software from your system again whenever you want.

Start the installer with administrator permissions.

Note for Windows XP users
If you are working under Windows XP with non-admin rights, you can run the installer with administrator permissions. Just click with the right mouse button on the .exe-file and select "Run as" from the context menu.

Note für Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 users 
If you want to install the program on Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8 you has to allow the installer to access your computer at the User Account Control (UAC). Click on the Yes button.
