The Windows installer will add most or all of these requirements automatically. For Linux and OSX install the required components before running the app or attempting to install.


When you first run the program you will need to set the configuration to communicate with your AlarmDecoder device. You can do that from within the program in the "System Menu" or by directly editing the text config files: mysettings.conf or alarmdecodergui.exe.config. The application must be restarted in order for config file changes to take effect.
