Download and Installation

Installation Instructions

Before installing Private Eye, please take the time to read the following:

  • Please make a backup of your hard disk before running Private Eye for the first time.
    While every attempt has been made to ensure that Private Eye is bug-free, due to the number of different hardware and software configurations around today, it is impossible to guarantee that it will perform error-free on your particular system. As a result, it is strongly recommended that you make a backup of all important files before running Private Eye for the first time, or before trying an upgraded version of Private Eye.
  • If you are upgrading from an earlier version of Private Eye, refer to the Version History to see what new features have been added.
  • Remember, there is NO WARRANTY with this software.

Having read and checked the above, you can install Private Eye as follows:

  1. From the following list of download files and locations, select the newest version for your Operating System and click on the link to download. When prompted to save or open the file, choose to open the file from its current location. (Alternatively, you can save it to disk then run the program later.)
  2. The installation program will walk you through the rest of the installation.

Once setup is complete you will be able to run Private Eye from the icon placed under your Start menu.

Note that since Private Eye is freeware, you can copy any of the files downloaded from above and pass them along to your friends and colleagues (see license for details). The files even fit on a single 3.5" (1.44MB) floppy disk!
