Installing

To install Transcripteur, execute the setup program. Once installed, Transcripteur can be invoked from the Start menu, the Desktop, or directly from its installation folder in the hard drive.

Uninstalling

Transcripteur’s setup includes an uninstaller utility. To run the uninstaller, navigate through the Start Menu or through the hard drive to Transcripteur's folder. Alternatively, it is possible to uninstall Transcripteur through the Programs and Features applet located in the Control Panel.

Portability

Transcripteur requires the .NET Framework 4.7. If absent, it will have to be installed manually. If in doubt, please use the installer as it will automatically install .NET Framework 4.7 as necessary.

Beyond this requirement, Transcripteur is 100% portable in and of itself. If the contents of the folder where Transcripteur is installed are copied elsewhere (a USB flash drive, for example), Transcripteur will work perfectly.

For convenience, an uninstaller-free zip file is also available for download.
