Smartsettle Infinity runs on all the Windows operating systems. Windows 7 was one of the best. Mac users can run Smartsettle using Boot Camp, Parallels or VMware. Smartsettle One requires no download.
Any of the above builds may be used at the International eNegotiation Exhibition.
This setup may produce an unknown publisher warning. You may safely ignore that warning if you have downloaded the setup from this site. See the illustration below for screens that you may encounter on Windows 10. You may need to install as administrator and run as administrator every time. After installation, find the shortcut and turn on “Run as administrator” under advanced properties. In case of problems take the older version of this build below.
Smartsettle must be installed with administrator privileges. After downloading the setup file, right-click on it and choose “Run as administrator”. The setup process will present you with the following instructions:
- You will need to run Smartsettle as administrator at least the first time you go online in order to unblock the encryption routines and possibly every time, depending on your system configuration. To automate this, right-click on the shortcut for smartsettle.exe and then click Properties. In the Properties dialog box click the Shortcut tab and then Advanced. Then you can set “Run as administrator” as shown in the screen shot shown here.
- If you are not installing as administrator and you have Data Execution Prevention (DEP) enabled, Smartsettle will not run until you set smartsettle.exe as an exception. This is an advanced performance setting under system properties. Instructions are here.
- For best results do not install in “Program Files”. Specify a path like “c:\Smartsettle Infinity”.
- If the system complains about access to c:\Windows\temp then you may need to manually go to that location to establish access.
After installation, click here for setup and update instructions.
Unless you have also purchased a key, your installation will default to the Observer (Lite) edition. After you’ve taken Smartsettle Observer for a test drive you will be better able to choose the Smartsettle edition that’s best for you. Simply adding the appropriate key will upgrade your installation.
This is an experimental setup that requires no installation. Simply download this zip file, open it and drag the contained folder to your root directory. Inside you will find smartsettle.exe. Create a shortcut and put it in a convenient place. Follow the instructions above to always run smartsettle as administrator. You may also need to create a DEP exception (see link above).
If you try this one, please let us know how it works. You will need some updated documentation.
Some browsers may have trouble downloading executable files. You might solve this by trying a different browser such as Chrome or Firefox.
If all else fails, please contact support for assistance.
