Download Qube! Installer

Qube! Installer: An easy-to-use installation wizard and distribution utility for Qube!

Qube! installation has never been easier. No more downloading from ftp, no more determining compatibility, no more keeping track of component installation files. With Qube!’s new installation utility, a simple wizard will allow you to select the computer’s role then it will download all the required software and handle the installation and/or upgrade for you. When installation is complete, a “kickstart” file is created that will allow that same installation to be replicated across your facility.

As with all PipelineFX software, the Qube! Installer is completely cross platform, working with, not over, OS-native installation utilities.

Already have a home-built solution for Qube! software distribution? No problem. The Qube! Installer works with our existing installation architecture. If you choose not you use it, you can install/upgrade the same way you always have.
