Before Installation
  • Backing up the program files
    Backup the program files you downloaded to a memory media like CF card or USB flash.
All four downloadable program files are self-extracting executables which, when double-clicked, create new files and folders on your hard drive. Two of those four programs require no further installation, but the other two create an additional Setup.exe file which must be executed to complete the installation.
Turn ON the PC and start Windows. Create a new folder on your hard disk with a name of your choice, and download the free software into the folder. Double-click the file necessary for your WT series model, then click OK in the dialog box. A new folder, YOKOGAWA, will be created on drive C and files will be extracted to it. Specify any changes you wish to make to the destination folder.

When the extraction is finished, check to see if the program executable file was created.
If so, installation is complete. If the Setup.exe file (rather than executable files) was created you will need to perform a few more steps to complete the installation. Double-click the Setup.exe file, and follow the on-screen instructions.
Creating Icons for the WT Free Software
After the program has been fully installed, you can use Explorer or the My Computer browser to create a shortcut to the program. Locate the executable file, right-click its icon, and select Create Shortcut from the shortcut menu. Running/Exiting the Software.
  • Running the software
    Double-click the program executable file or its shortcut to run the software. Or, if the program was installed using a Setup.exe file, select Start > Programs > Yokogawa, then the name of the program you wish to run.
  • Exiting the software
    Select File > Exit, or Close the program window.
