User Guide: Installation

First you need to download the latest version of Videora. You can choose to either download the free trial version or the full version. The trial version contains only a limited set of functionality compared to the full version. This user guide was written for the full version of Videora and all the features outlined in the guide may not be usable in the trial version. To download either version, click here.

Once you purchase Videora, a link to the software will be provided in your e-mail receipt. Click the link and download the file in a convent place (like your Desktop) on your hard drive. If you are unfamiliar with downloading files visit this tutorial.

When the download is finished, go to the location where you saved the file and double-click this icon:

The Welcome screen will appear.

Click 'Next' to proceed. The next screen will be the End-User Software License Agreement (EULA).

Please read the EULA thoroughly before going further. It contains important information that you need to know. If you do not agree to the terms, click 'Cancel' to exit the installation, no files will be installed and no changes will be made on to computer. Click 'I Agree' to continue with installation.

Note: It is highly recommended that you click 'Next' on this screen otherwise Videora may not operate properly. See below for more details.

This screen shows what programs will be installed. Videora is installed by default. BitComet is a free BitTorrent client and is required by Videora to automatically download files. Unless you already have a Videora Supported BitTorrent client it is recommended that you install BitComet as Videora does not work with most BitTorrent clients.

To learn what other BitTorrent clients you can use with Videora click here.

This screen shows the location on your hard drive where Videora will be installed. You can change the location by clicking a 'Browse…' button and choosing another folder.

To start the installation click 'Install'.

Videora will start installing, this process could take anywhere between less than a minute to 45 minutes depending on your internet connection and your system.

The installer will first check if you have the Microsoft Common Language Runtime (CLR). The CLR includes a number of files that are required for Videora to run. While some PCs have the CLR, many do not. Installation of the CLR is only required once. You will not have to go through this process again.

If the installer determines that you do not have the Microsoft CLR installed, it will proceed to download it from Microsoft (a 20mb file) and install it automatically. The Microsoft CLR installation includes many files and may take a long time to complete. The Videora setup program is designed to do this silently so you will not see the progress of the Microsoft CLR installation; you will see just the Videora 1.0 Setup screen and should see your hard drive light flickering. Please be patient and leave the installer uninterrupted.

After the Microsoft CLR is installed, the installer will proceed to install Videora, if the CLR was already installed from the beginning, the installer will skip to this step. If you selected to install BitComet, it will be installed after Videora is installed. Finally you will see the next screen.

The final screen will confirm the installation was successful, and allow you to run Videora or read the Readme if you want. Simply select what you want to do and click 'Finish'.

Running Videora for the first time (Upgrade Version)

When the installation is finished, go to your Desktop and double-click this icon:

When Videora starts for the first time you should see the screen below.

When promoted, enter the new Videora 2.0 license key given to you in your e-mail receipt and enter your old Videora 1.0 license key. Remember to put the right license key in the proper box. Then click 'Go'. If you mistype EITHER the license key or type in an invalid license key you will see the following screen.

Even if you type in your Videora 2.0 license key perfectly fine and only mess up your Videora 1.0 License key, Videora will still show the above screen telling you that your 2.0 key is invalid. If you are getting this screen, this means one of the license keys you typed in was invalid. Make sure to type them both in correctly. We recommend that you copy and paste them from your e-mail receipt to avoid copy errors.

To retype your license key, click on the 'Enter License Key' button and re-enter the license key given to you in your e-mail receipt.
