Option Win: controlling Microsoft® Windows® systems

The option Win enables to use a Microsoft® Windows® system as an XcontrolX slave. You have to install the additional XcontrolX Windows® client program to use this feature.

Installing the software

To install the software you will need approximately 7 MBytes free filesystem space on the Microsoft® Windows® system.

First install XcontrolX on the controlling master computer (Installation).

Copy the file XcontrolX Windows client setup.exe from the XcontrolX installation directory (usually /opt/XSOXcontrolX/share) to the Microsoft® Windows® system.

Execute the binary with administration rights and follow the installation wizard's instructions.
