Caution
It is required to install critical Windows updates before the application installation.
Caution
Installation of .NET Framework 4.6.1 or later is required prior to the Cinegy PCS installation. In case online installation takes place, the web installer will update the system components, if necessary. The offline installer can be used if the web installer is unavailable due to lack of Internet connection. In this case, make sure the .NET Framework 4.5 is activated as a Windows feature, then download the corresponding offline installer package directly from Microsoft website. After the .NET Framework 4.6.1 is installed, the OS reboot is required. Otherwise, the installation may fail.
Caution
Please note that Cinegy Convert requires the use of SQL Server. For basic installations and test purposes, you can use Microsoft SQL Server Express with advanced services features that can be downloaded for free from the Microsoft website. Please follow the basic Microsoft hardware and software requirements to install and run SQL Server.

The machine running PCS is the central system component used as a storage for all the task processing resources. It allows monitoring all registered tasks and their statuses. If any Cinegy Convert components are installed on other machines, they should have access to this machine to be able to report on the performed tasks.

    The default installation directory, which is indicated underneath the package component name, can be changed by clicking the path and choosing the desired folder. Press "Next" to proceed with installation.

  4. Check whether your system is ready for installation in the following dialog:

    System_validation

    Once the reason of prevention is excluded, press the "Refresh" button for the system to recheck installation availability. If it is successful, you can proceed with installation.
