Installation

To install Loki Control, double-click the installer executable :

The installation process starts with steps detailed below.

Note that an upgrade will proceed slightly differently. See the Upgrading section below.

Install Steps

The first installer page.

Check the version of Loki Control being installed.

By default, Loki Control will select the installed Loki application as a renderer.

By default, the destination will be a folder called lokicontrol inside the previously selected renderer installation folder.

You should not need to change this.

Select the executable to use for rendering.

This will default to the Loki application executable.

See the exePath setting in the Configuration page.

The page lets us select the folders we use for :
  • Watch

  • Failed

See the Configuration page for a description of these folders and how to configure them after installation.

This page will not appear if you are upgrading. See below.

Upgrading

Running the Loki Control installer to upgrade is a similar process.

However, the installer steps that allow selection of the :

  • Watch
  • Succeeeded
  • Failed
  • Logging
  • Notes

folders will not be presented.

This is because these folders are already configured in the lokicontrol.ini file.

See the Configuration section for a description of the lokicontrol.ini file, the configuration settings available and the folders used.
