Installation

Installation process consists of few steps:

  2. In case of Windows OS check if you have already installed .NET Framework v4.0 on your machine by executing .NET Framework file. As a result operating system will start installation process or notify that .NET Framework is already installed on your machine.
  3. ConvAn works with point decimal separator that means that user must check if decimal separator is point not coma. On Windows machines it can be done under Start --> Control Panel --> Region and Language where in Formats tab under button Additional settings... is located Decimal Symbol: input field.
  4. Extract ConvAn archive on your machine and you can freely start using ConvAn by running ConvAn vx.x.exe located in extracted folder in case of Windows OS, but on other platforms ConvAn can be run on the open source Mono Framework.

IMPORTANT! Do not delete any file in extracted folder, because they all are used by ConvAn.
