Program installation and launch


SprutCAM 12 uses Internet for the installation. The SprutCAM12Setup.exe setup program scans through the SprutCAM web server for available modules and downloads them. There is an option to install only required modules skipping the others(they are not downloaded). Successive installer runs use the previously downloaded modules to speed up the installation process.


There is of course a "disk" installer based on the same technology which uses local modules for installation.
