On Windows, download our zip file with the installer (setup.exe). Unzip and double-click “setup.exe”. The installer adds the DesignFreeQ app to the Windows Start Menu and puts a shortcut icon on your desktop. To use all features, this version requires a dongle. If it’s not present, printing and export are disabled, but it allows you to save your drawing in VLM format. If you purchased a dongle, also run WkRuntime.exe which installs the drivers for you. Without driver and dongle, DesignFreeQ will take a bit longer to launch.
On Mac OS X, download the dmg file. Double-clicking the dmg file opens the installer and gives you a choice of 3 different localizations (English, German and Italian). Drop one of the DesignFreeQ apps onto the icon representing the Application folder. Start the DesignFreeQ app by clicking the icon in Launchpad. This version also requires a dongle to use all features. Contrary to the Windows version, saving in VLM format is not allowed without dongle. On Mac you need not install dongle drivers but without dongle, DesignFreeQ will take longer to launch.
Alternatively, get DesignFreeQ from Apple’s App Store for a quite reasonable price. The App Store version runs securely in the MacOSX sandbox and doesn’t require a dongle. This version is unrestricted but comes without IGES and DXF translators.
