Please review the following instructions before starting the install process.
If you are updating from a previous version – you do not need to uninstall – just follow the steps below.
The install process is the same for both a brand-new install and the update to the newest version v4.7
NOTE: The Alert Software must be closed before installing the update.
SAVE / Download the install file to your computer (link at the bottom of this page)
This process will vary depending on which Browser you are using to SAVE / Download the install file.
If you’re using Microsoft Edge, when you click the download link it will look like this.
Click SAVE if prompted and it will download the install file to your Downloads Folder. Some Edge browsers just automatically save the File to your Downloads Folder as soon as you click the link
Once the download is finished you can navigate to your Downloads Folder and double-click the file to begin the install.
If you are using a different browser the steps will be similar – but you may have to locate the install file you saved and then double-click it to start the install. Most browsers will Save it to the Downloads Folder by default – unless you specify a different location to save the file. If you get the option to “Run” after the file is downloaded, just choose Run.
If you are using FireFox the download dialog box will look like this:
Chrome should look similar. NOTE: Most Chrome browsers will automatically download the install file as soon as you click the link – without any prompt or dialog box. If you’re on Chrome and click the link and it seems like “nothing happened” then just go to your Downloads Folder and you will see the install file in there.
The name of the install file is Power-Emini-Alerts-Setup-v470.exe if you need to locate it on your computer – Just Run the install by double-clicking it.
When you click to Run the install, you will see the UAC screen pop up – just click Yes
That will start the install process. This is the first screen.
Just click Next, Next, Next and it will walk you through the install process – and create a new shortcut icon on your Desktop.
The last step is entering your login information from the download email we sent you in the Credentials Window.
NOTE: Best to use Copy/Paste and NOT attempt to type your info (Select codes separately and then use Ctrl-C to copy and Ctr-V to paste). Once you’ve pasted in your username and password just click Apply and then OK.
NOTE: If you are updating from a previous version your credentials will be saved and you won’t even see that dialog box – you won’t need to enter or change anything.
The new Shortcut Icon on your Desktop will looks like this. (if you have a dark Desktop background it might be difficult to see.
Just double-click that icon to launch the Power Emini Alert Software.
Things to be aware of before you start the install
- If your anti-virus software pops up with a message – choose to “allow” or “trust this file”
- If you are updating from a previous version of the software – the software must be closed to run the update / install
- You have to be logged into your computer as the Administrator in order to install the software (it’s rare that you aren’t already logged in as the Admin)
- You can keep the install file you downloaded / saved – but you launch the actual Alert Software from the (new) shortcut icon on your Desktop
- It’s a good idea to close any other programs you have running before installing (leaving your browser open is ok)
