    Dependencies

    1. Install the .NET 6 Desktop Runtime x64

    If you were previously using the standalone installer/updater (before v0.6), it is highly suggested that you switch to the new method for installing OpenTabletDriver below.


    Installation

    Note: If you are upgrading from an older version of OpenTabletDriver, it is important that you do not install it on top of the old version and instead clean up the old directory or install it to its own directory.

    1. Download the latest release (OpenTabletDriver-win-x64.zip)
    2. Extract the downloaded file into a folder of its own
      Replace <username> with your username in this example
      C:\Users\<username>\OpenTabletDriver
      
    3. Run OpenTabletDriver.UX.Wpf.exe in the extracted directory.
      Note: You can create a shortcut to this file, just make sure that the working directory points to the extracted directory.
