Installation

VisionX is offered for Microsoft Windows, Apple macOS and various Linux distributions. The installation process differs depending on the operating system and the selected VisionX package.

Microsoft Windows

The VisionX download for Microsoft Windows supports all versions.

Installer

The comfortable VisionX installer allows to install VisionX on your system without administrative rights. Simply execute the VisionX installer to start the installation.

ZIP Archive

Unpack the archive to a location where you would like to store VisionX and run VisionX by double-clicking the visionx.exe file.

Apple macOS

VisionX for macOS is shipped in a comfortable installation package. Simply execute the VisionX package that you have downloaded to start the installation.

Because VisionX is not shipped through the Apple Store, a warning might be displayed that the identity of the developer cannot be verified. You can still open VisionX by opening the context menu on the launcher and selection “Open”.

Linux

Unpack the archive to a location where you would like to store VisionX.

After unpacking the archive, you have to mark the required files as executable. This can be done with the following command line commands (in the directory in which you unpacked VisionX):

  • chmod u+x setup.sh
  • ./setup.sh

Or alternatively through your file manager by setting the executable permission on the setup.sh file and executing it afterwards.

VisionX can now be launched by executing visionx.sh.

Next steps

You can now use VisionX Trial without any limitations in functionality and create your first application in mere minutes. See the guide on creating your first visionx application for further information, or feel free to contact us with any questions that might arise.
