# Windows 10 installation

# Prerequisites

  • A PC or tablet that follow the minimum system requirements
  • Check for and install all pending Windows updates
  • Administrative rights on the computer
  • Internet access

# Create a Windows user

We'll start by creating a local user in Windows, to be used by the Motiview application. This is to ensure no personal documents or files are exposed to the end users while using Motiview. If you already have a dedicated user on the computer for Motiview usage, you can skip this step.

  1. Click the ⊞Start button, and go to Settings > Accounts, and then select Family & other users

  2. Select Add someone else to this PC

  3. Select I don't have this person's sign-in information, and on the next page, select Add a user without a Microsoft account.

  4. Enter Motiview as the user name, and let the password be blank, and click Next


    If you have a Windows 10 Professional computer, or have an IT department that manage user accounts, you might have policies that says you need a password. If so, make sure the password is available for the users of the computer

# Log in to the Motiview user

After creating the Motiview user in Windows, we will now log into this account to install Motiview

  1. Select the Start button, and click on your user to select Motiview

  2. Log in to the newly created account


    If your computer asks for a username and password, you'll use .\Motiview as the username (including the dot and backslash)

# Install the Motiview application

  1. Open Microsoft Store on your computer / tablet, and search for Motiview. You can also click here to open the Motiview page in MS Store directly


    If Microsoft Store isn't available on your computer, you can install Motiview by enabling sideloading. Please get in touch with us if you need this.

  2. Click Get to download the application. Note that you don’t need to log in to a Microsoft account to be able to enjoy Motiview.
