Installing MonitorWare Agent is simple and easy. A standard setup program installs the application.

A number of different Download Versions of the product is available. The main difference is whether or not a current version of the Microsoft Windows Installer program is included. If you use recent software (e.g. Windows XP or Windows 2003 Server), you can typically use the small install set. Install sets have different names. Those ending in “max” are typically the version for older operating systems without a current installer. If in doubt, use an install set whose name ends in “max”. All files are direct install sets, so there is no need to unzip them or to find a setup.exe or such.

Depending on the download directory, the setup program may also be supplied in a ZIP file.

Furthermore the installer adds a Windows Firewall exception for the service process automatically during the installation routine.
