DirectConnect Installation Guide

Charlie Flynn -

Installation Note: It is important to install the proper 32-bit or 64-bit Printer++ application for your system first. The virtual printer will look for certain print drivers depending on whether it is running in a 32-bit or 64-bit environment.

Step 3

Click "Next" to continue.

Step 4

A progress bar will briefly display showing the installation status, and then you will see this dialog. Click "Close".

Step 5

DirectConnect will attempt to add the following value to the registry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

This will set DirectConnect to automatically startup when the system is started.

Note: In certain cases, the logged in user will not have sufficient permissions to add this registry setting, which will prevent DirectConnect from functioning correctly. Included with the installation is a registry setting file located at C:\Forcura\DirectConnectVirtual.reg. If this registry setting is not present, run this file under administrator's priviledges and it will add the correct key to the registry.

 

Installation complete! Now you just need to configure it for your user(s). Click here to finish getting set up.
