5.8 Client Installation Guide


Step 1:  Ensure Prerequisites have been met

Before you can use your new DyKnow MSI installer for DyKnow Monitor/Vision 5.8, please utilize our prerequisite wizard to ensure you have all necessary prerequisites installed.

Step 2:  Allow Communication

To eliminate potential connectivity issues and minimize traffic flow interruptions to the DyKnow server, add the IP addresses below to the exception list for any security or web appliances (e.g. firewall, proxy server, web/content filter).

secure.dyknow.com (HTTP port 443)

diag.dyknow.com (HTTP port 80)

Step 3:  Install the DyKnow application via MSI

As of April 2015, we no longer provide direct downloads of the client installer in favor of installers configured specifically for each school. DyKnow admins can request a customized MSI here for distribution at their school.

Students and teachers should contact their school's helpdesk for the installer for their school.

Step 4:  Optional components (Bundle or Vision only)

DyKnow Notebook Writer (32-bit | 64-bit):  This tool allows you to convert content from other Windows applications into a DyKnow compatible notebook.  it installs as a virtual printer and functions similar to a PDF printer or Send to OneNote.

    Please provide plain MSI downloads on your website. I know how to customize an MSI myself. I need a quick way to be able to fetch the latest MSI.
