Do not connect the Asyra device to the computer until the application is installed.
Ensure you have an active internet connection.
Ensure Windows and all drivers are updated (in Windows 10 this is done automatically depending on your version).
Insert the USB flash drive in to your computer.
Note:- If your USB flash drive or CD was supplied pre January 2015, we advise downloading the current installation files to avoid potential installation and update complications. Please refer to the relevant page in the support articles or the Facebook group for download locations and instructions.

Update the software.
The update procedure is automated and should happen when you turn the machine on and start the software (there may not always be any updates to download). However, this isn’t always the case and you will need to manually update or “Force Update” http://www.asyra.co.uk/how-to-force-a-web-update/

When the software is launched, windows will usually display the User Account Control window and dim the desktop. It will ask “Do you want to allow the following program to make changes to this computer? Click YES.
Anti-Virus programs may also display warnings, confirm the program is ‘safe’ or ‘trusted’ etc.
