Cinegy Route has a unified installer that allows installing all 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 prior to the Cinegy Route 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 .NET Framework 4.5 is activated as a Windows feature, then download the corresponding offline installer package directly from Microsoft website. After .NET Framework 4.6.1 is installed, the OS reboot is required. Otherwise, the installation may fail.

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


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

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

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

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

  • All-in-one – all product components 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.
