Cinegy Convert Installation

Cinegy Convert has a unified installer that allows installing all the components you need.

It is required to install critical Windows updates before the application installation.
Installation of .NET Framework 4.6.1 or later is required before the Cinegy Convert installation. In the case of online installation, the web installer will update the system components, if necessary. The offline installer can be used if the web installer is unavailable due to a 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 the Microsoft website. After the .NET Framework 4.6.1 is installed, the OS reboot is required. Otherwise, the installation may fail.

To start the installation, run the Cinegy.Convert.Setup.exe file. The setup wizard will be launched:


Read the License Agreement and check the box to accept its terms.

Select the installation mode depending on the purpose of using Cinegy Convert on the given machine:

  • All-in-one – all product components will be installed with their default settings.

  • Client configuration – the product components for client workstations will be installed with their default settings.

  • Server configuration – the product components for server workstations will be installed with their default settings.

  • Custom – this installation mode allows choosing the components to be installed, their locations, and settings, and is recommended for advanced users.

All the package components available for the selected installation mode are listed in the following dialog:

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



The green tick indicates that the system resources are ready and no other processes may prevent installation. Clicking the validation entry field displays its detailed information.


While the system performs verification of any parameter, the checking progress is displayed.

The explanation differs depending on the reason why the installation cannot proceed.

Press "Back" to change the installation settings or "Cancel" to abort and exit the setup wizard.


Press the "Next" button to begin the installation.

The progress bar indicates the progress of the installation process.
