Software download ~ installation

This software can be installed in any user folder you like.
Precautions for installation
The size of the software itself exceeds 2GB. Make sure there is enough disk space in the installation folder. Also, the download will take a long time. Depending on the network environment, it may take an hour or even several hours. Avoid installing at night when the internet is slow, and do it when you have time to spare.
For Windows, do not install under "C: \ Program Files" or "C: \ Program Files (x86)", which have access restrictions. Install it in your newly created user folder.
PC Log in to the VelociDrone website and click on your full name at the top right of the screen. Then a menu like this will be displayed, so select “My Licenses”.
PC Then you will see a screen like this. Click the “Download VelociDrone ...” button in the center of the screen to download ZIP file (launcher). You can choose Windows version, Mac version, Linux Debian version, Linux Redhat version. You can download the software from this screen anytime and any number of times.
Once the software is installed, the license will be linked to the computer. If you want to reinstall it on another computer, click “Unassign License From Current Device” button displayed on this screen after installation to remove the linkage to previous computer.
PC You can download a file such as “Velocidrone Windows Launcher.zip”. Size of this file is about 8MB for Windows 10. Copy this to any folder you want to install and unzip it.
Then, three files “install_readme.txt”,“Launcher.exe” and “launcher.dat” will appear in the folder “Velocidrone Windows Launcher” like this. Double-click “Launcher.exe” to start downloading and installing the software. The software will be installed in the folder where you started “Launcher.exe”.
PC When you double-click “Launcher.exe”, you will first see a screen like this. Download of the 30MB size installer will start.
PC Next, download and installation of the software itself will start. It takes a lot of time. Please wait earnestly. No special operation is required during installation, so you can leave it alone.
When the progress bar reaches 50%, the download is complete, and then the decompression work is performed. In my environment it took 2 hours to download and another 30 minutes to unzip, for a total of 2 hours and 30 minutes.
PC When screen looks like this, installation is complete. Click “Play” button to start program.
PC When starting the app for the first time, you need to log in to the app. Enter your email address and password that you registered on the VelociDrone website.
VelociDrone is not registered in the Windows Start menu or desktop. Next time you start software, you must open installation folder and double-click “Launcher.exe” again. Or pin “Launcher.exe” to the Start menu yourself, or put a shortcut on your desktop.
