Manual installation

ViewFTP does not need installation. In fact, the application is made only by the executable file ViewFTP.exe. Therefore, you can simply copy ViewFTP.exe to any folder, the computer desktop included, and run it from there.

Setup wizard

It is much easier to run the setup wizard . This brings some advantages:

  • The program is installed, by default, to a proper folder
  • A shortcut to the program can be created on your desktop
  • You will find a shortcut to the program in the main menu of your PC (the start button)
  • In the same position you will find a link to the uninstall wizard procedure
  • A copy of the utility AFMvistaLock for recording the program on Vista and Win7 is installed

The installation package is an executable file called ViewFTP_X.X.X.X.exe, where X.X.X.X is the version number. After downloading it, run it by double clicking on its icon. Alternatively, depending on your internet browser, you could also run it from the Internet.

Select your preferred language for installation, and follow the simple instructions that appear on the screen.
