How-to install Xyntax (generic)

[Video Guide]

To install the Xyntax application, you'll need to first download the installation package and the necessary font files. The latest version of Xyntax, including all other supporting files, can be found here

You'll need to download the following:

  1. Xyntax Generic Installation Package (ver. pxp1410-0000-WPI.exe)
  2. Cheque MICR Font (micrenc.ttf)
  3. System Font 1 (VeraMoBd.tff)
  4. System Font 2 (VeraMono.ttf)


Important! -- The application must be installed, with administrator rights, in order to make it compatible with all Windows Vista SP2 or newer.

Once the downloads have completed (it may take a few minutes)...

1. Right-click on each of the three font files and click Install for all users.

2. Right-click on pxp####-####-WPI.exe and click Run as administrator.

Installing all files with administrative rights will ensure that the necessary font files and the Xyntax application itself can operate properly. Failing to do so will prevent the program from running properly. If you do not have administrative rights to your computer, please contact your technician.

If you do, an installation wizard will appear that will guide you through the installation of the Xyntax application:

6. Click Next.

7. Choose the Destination folder for where to install Xyntax. To choose an alternate install location, click Change.

Wait for the installation process to complete.

9. Click Finish.

Now that the program has been installed, it’ll be time to create and configure the local shortcut (and remote shortcut if you want) to access the Xyntax server.

10. In the bottom left, click the Windows icon. Navigate to the WindX Plugin folder.

11. Create a shortcut by clicking and dragging the App Server Client to the desktop.
