New User Install Tips
Before installing the iDoctor GUI for the first time you are required to install the Microsoft Visual Studio Redistributable package and Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 or higher.
Note: To avoid problems, save the download to your PC, then right-click it and use the 'Run as administrator' option. Be sure to download the x86 image (32-bit). Note: Some users claim that installing the x64 (64-bit) option is required, but have not yet confirmed this. If you are having issues getting the iDoctor install to let you continue the installation because it thinks MS Visual Studio redistributable package is not installed, then go ahead and install both x86 and x64.
The install process has changed so that the server images are downloaded by the install program when it runs on your PC. Server build dates shown by the install program are listed here. These dates are the dates the save files were created and may not necessarily match the dates within data area QIDRVRM or the iDoctor properties. Click here for the install FAQ page.
