Installing and Upgrading

Installing on a new computer

To install QuickJump, download and run the installer by clicking “Download” on this page. The default EXE installer does not require administrator permissions. It installs the product for the user running the installer.

We do provide an MSI installer for automatic mass deployment - please see below.

After running the installer, QuickJump will start automatically. Hit Ctrl+Shit+J to open the Main Window and start using it.

Note

You can change the hotkey combination in the Options Window.

Upgrading QuickJump

To install a new version of QuickJump, follow the same steps as you did when you originally installed it. There is no need to uninstall the previous version prior to installation.

Tip

You can use the Checks For Updates command to check if there is a new version available.

Changing computers

If you have a new computer and would like to start using QuickJump on it and discontinue using QuickJump on the old computer, you can do so without purchasing a new license.

  1. Uninstall QuickJump from the old computer. (Using Windows Control Panel).
  2. Install QuickJump on the new computer using the same steps you used for the original installation.

Important

When you purchase a license, be sure to save the email with your license key, so you can reinstall the product in the future.

Note

If you have a new computer and would like to use QuickJump on both the new and the old computers, you need to purchase a new license and install it on the new computer.

MSI Installer and installing for all users

The default installer provided on the download page is an EXE installer. It installs the product for the current user’s profile. MSI installer is available upon request (to sites with over 20 seats). The MSI installer requires Administrator permissions and installs the product for all users on a computer. If you previously installed the product using the EXE installer, it needs to be uninstalled before using the MSI.

We recommend that you use the EXE installer unless you have a special reason to use MSI. For example, system administrators performing large-scale deployment will choose to use the MSI installer for automated deployment.

Large-scale deployment and administration

For large installations, it is not practical to walk around in order to install software and enter license key on every workstation. We provide a way for system administrators to centrally install and manage MessageSave. This approach starts making sense for sites over 20 users and scales up very well. We have customers that manage installations for thousands of users. Please contact us for details.

Uninstalling

You can uninstall QuickJump using the Windows Control Panel, just like any other Windows Application.
