Copy the installer program file to your computer.

The installer file name is “xilab-<version_name>-win32_win64.exe”. It automatically detects whether it is running on 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows and installs the appropriate version of XiLab.

Note

Only Windows XP SP3 is supported. Please update your Windows XP to the latest service pack.
