It is required to install critical Windows updates before the application installation.
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, installation may fail.
