Install Blocks server on Windows PC

Using a laptop or desktop computer makes it easy to work with other content production software for images, video and audio. While you can access a server from any computer over the local network, having Blocks installed on your laptop means you can work locally with content production as well as testing spots. Installation To install Blocks on your Windows PC, do as follows:

  • Right-click the file and choose “Extract All” to unpack the ZIP archive..
  • If this is the first time you install Blocks on this computer, run the “CodeMeter Runtime.exe” installer. This installs the license key driver. Once the driver is installed, you may need to restart your PC. You don’t need to repeat this step when updating Blocks to a newer version.
  • Double-click the “PIXILAB-Blocks-Installer.exe” and follow the instructions to install Blocks.
  • Connect a hardware license key to a USB port on your computer.
