To install DCP-o-matic on Windows, download the installer from http://dcpomatic.com/ and double-click it. Click through the installer wizard, and DCP-o-matic will be installed onto your machine.

If you are using a 32-bit version of Windows, you will need the 32-bit installer. For 64-bit Windows, either installer will work, but I suggest you used the 64-bit version as it will allow DCP-o-matic to use more memory. You may find that DCP-o-matic crashes if you run many parallel encoding threads (more than 4) on the 32-bit version.

If you are still using Windows XP, download the specific XP version as it should be more stable on your machine than the ‘normal’ Windows version. Be aware, though, that support for Windows XP will not last forever and you should plan to upgrade if at all possible.
