The Free Version of Persephone can be installed in two ways:
- If you have permissions to install the software on your Windows computer, please download the setup program from https://persephonesoft.com/PersephoneSetup.exe.
- Another method to install Persephone, that does not require administrative rights, is to use the ClickOnce technology.
The simplest way is to use Internet Explorer or Edge. In this case, it is enough just to navigate to https://persephonesoft.com/clickonce/Persephone.application. Internet Explorer will automatically try to install Persephone.
If, for some reason, you cannot use Internet Explorer, also navigate to the same URL https://persephonesoft.com/clickonce/Persephone.application using your favorite browser. It will download a very small starter file Persephone.application. After that, all you need is to click it to initialize the installation.
You may see other screens from User Account Control making sure that you trust the publisher Persephone Software. Once installed, Persephone will start automatically. Next time you can launch the program by clicking a desktop icon or by finding Persephone in the Start menu. It will automatically check for updates.
