To install ADePT, download one of the distributions and unzip into an empty directory. (The developer edition must be in the same directory as the player edition.) The application installs itself the first time AdvPlay.exe is started. You may choose to create shortcuts and/or file type associations.

To uninstall ADePT, select ADePT in the Windows Software system panel. Then, delete the files you unzipped on installation.

To fix or change installation manually, run RSinstall.exe.
