The program does not need to be installed. Just copy the files & folders to any local folder.
For learning the program, the example folders and files can be copied to the same local folder as well.
We now see a couple of files for the program and some folders:
- 'AddOn' : This folder contains extra files for extra functionality
- 'Code': Default folder that contains script files
- 'Log': Folder that contains one or multiple log files (when requested).
- Any other folder that is part of a project...
When IT-Tool is used for another project, the same program/local folder can be used with the new project as a sub folder of 'Code'. It is, however, recommended to start from scratch and copy the files/folders to a new folder.
Now start IT-Tool.exe. The 'Code' folder (and sub folders) content are now shown in the Treeview. Double-click on "Info" to start your first script.
Note that 32Bit and 64Bit versions are available. The 32Bit program is more limited on memory, however, some addon's are only capable to run in 32 bit mode, so they are missing in the 64bit version.
Note: Files from internet can be blocked by Windows.
This can be solved by unblocking the zip file or files via file explorer, properties, unblock button.
If the addon functions do not work (in the log shown as not recognized), all files can be unblocked with the script:
To show images in a webbrowser or when printing the textbox, the Internet Explorer emulation mode needs to be turned off. This is automatically done when starting IT-Tool as an administrator( once).
This will create a key "IT-Tool.exe" with value "0x2710" or "10000" ("DWORD") in registry "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_BROWSER_EMULATION".
From version v3.0, it is required to have .Net framework v4.6.2 installed. IT-Tool also makes use of Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 Common Controls. On most computers with windows 7 and higher, these components are installed already. If not, they can be downloaded and installed via the Microsoft webpage.
