Windows Installation

To install the SDK on Windows, use the following procedure.

To install the SDK

  1. Run the installation program, KeyViewProductNameSDK_VersionNumber_OS.exe, where ProductName is the name of the product, VersionNumber is the product version number, and OS is the operating system.

    For example:


    The installation wizard opens.

  2. Read the instructions and click Next.

    The License Agreement page opens.

  3. Read the agreement. If you agree to the terms, click I accept the agreement, and then click Next.

    The Installation Directory page opens.

  4. Select the directory in which to install the SDK. To specify a directory other than the default, click , and then specify another directory. After choosing where to install the SDK, click Next.

    The License Key page opens.

  5. Type the company name and license key that were provided when you purchased KeyView, and then click Next.


    The installation program validates the company name and license key and generates the file install\OS\bin\kv.lic (where install is your chosen installation folder and OS is the name of the operating system platform). The license information is validated when the KeyView API is used. If you do not enter a license key at this step, or if you enter invalid information, the KeyView SDK is installed, but the API does not function. When you obtain a valid license key, you can either re-install the KeyView SDK, or manually update the license key file (kv.lic) with the new information. For more information, see License Information.

    The Pre-Installation Summary dialog box opens.

  6. Review the settings, and then click Next.

    The SDK is installed.

  7. Click Finish.
