188.8.131.52. Installation on Windows 8¶
Copy the installer program file to your computer. The installer file name is "xilab-<version_name>.exe". It automatically detects whether it is running on 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows and installs the appropriate version of XiLab. Run the installer and follow the on-screen instructions.
All the necessary software including drivers, packages and programs will be installed automatically.
After the installation is complete the XiLab application will be started by default.
Connect the stage to the controller. Connect regulated power supply to the controller. Ground the controller or the power supply unit. Connect the controller to the computer using a USB-A - mini-USB-B cable.
LED indicator on the controller board will start to flash. New Hardware Wizard will start after the first controller is connected to the computer. Wait until Windows detects the new device and installs the drivers for it. After the driver is successfully installed, click Retry, or run the Xilab application again, if it was closed. The system will detect the connected controller and open the main Xilab window.
