To download and install Tradebox One
- To download Tradebox click on the following link; http://www.tradebox.uk.com/_assets/bin/tradeboxv1.2setup.exe. (75MB).
- Once you have downloaded the installer, allow the Tradeboxv1setup.exe to run. It's not uncommon for your browser, your antivirus or Windows Smart Screen to attempt to block the exe from running; small software providers like ourselves don't have enough activity to end up on the whitelists used by Microsoft or antivirus providers. Look for an option like run anyway which is sometimes hidden behind a more information prompt.
- When the installer starts, unzip files to the default temp directory. Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the installation.
- When the wizard has finished, there's an option to launch the program straight away.
- On first launch, Tradebox will check your PC for some Microsoft redistributables and an MS Access data engine. If they're not present already, you'll see one or more additional installers appear. Follow the prompts on screen to install these necessary components. Then try to relaunch Tradebox; you can find a shortcut in the Start Menu > All Programs > Tradebox > Tradebox.
If you're setting up for the first time, our guide to setting up Tradebox One will take you through the program's setup wizard, which is the next step.
