Setup Bootstrapper


Setup Bootstrapper

The Keyman Desktop installation bootstrapper is a self-extracting executable file that contains a Windows Installer technology MSI file, and optionally keyboards. The bootstrapper is used whenever a package installer is created.

The bootstrapper:

  1. Checks the system before starting the installation to ensure that all prerequisites are met, and optionally downloads and installs the prerequisites.
  2. Optionally checks online for an updated version of Keyman Desktop before installing.
  3. Starts the Keyman Desktop Windows Installer MSI package.
  4. Installs any keyboards included.
  5. Starts Keyman Desktop after the install completes.
