Note

Pix2Net is an intense graphics program that is meant to be run locally. If you attempt to use it with remote display software, such as NoMachine NX, Pix2Net is not guaranteed to be responsive (or even work).

Installation

Separate installers are provided for each operating system.

Windows

Run the Windows installer. If this is the first time you are installing Pix2Net, make sure the Visual Studio 2010 redistributable, Java Runtime Environment 8, and the Sentinel HASP Run-time packages are selected for installation.

After the installation, insert the security dongle into your computer. Launch Pix2Net by double-clicking the Pix2Net shortcut on the desktop, or by going to Start → All Programs → Pix2Net → Pix2Net.

To find out what driver you are currently using, open the Start menu, type in dxdiag and hit Enter. Click Display 1, look at the Drivers group on the right, and note the Version field.
