What to do with the downloaded file

The exe file is a self-extracting zipfile which will upgrade all your Darca program files to the most recent version. Download this file to a known place then from windows explorer find the file and right click on it and select 'Run as Administrator' if using windows 7, or just double click on the file if using an older version of windows. The default program file location selected is C:\Program Files\Eltek\Darca which will install the files to 'C:\Program Files\Eltek\Darca' for 32-bit processors but for 64 bit versions of windows you may need to modify this to 'C:\Program Files(x86)\Eltek\Darca'. If you do not 'Run as Administrator' in Windows 7 then it will fail to extract the files even if the user is an Administrator.

If you cannot find the 'Run As Administrator' option then alternatively in Windows 7, ensure the user has administrator privileges and instead to extract the files to another directory and then manually copy the files to the installation directory.

If you find any problems in the current version please email technical help at support@eltekdataloggers.co.uk with the software version, the Squirrel (model & serial number) that you are using, a description of the problem and details of how to reproduce it.
