How to Install Plottr for Desktop

Welcome aboard! Installing Plottr on your computer requires just a few short steps. (You’ll also need to activate your license key.)

This article provides an overview of the installation process for Window and Mac.

How to Find Your Installation Files

As a customer, you can access your Plottr desktop installation files at any time from the Downloads page within your account.

Installing Plottr for Windows

To install Plottr on your Windows computer:

  1. Download the Windows Installer file (.exe) from the Downloads page or your email confirmation
  2. Double click the file on your computer to install it
  3. Windows will tell you that it’s potentially dangerous but that it’s from C. Louis S.
  4. Click “Run Anyway”
  5. Windows will ask you where you want to install the file and to confirm the installation
  6. Open Plottr from the Windows menu or shortcut icon

Installing Plottr for Mac

To install Plottr on your Mac computer:

  1. Download the Mac Installer file (.dmg) from the Downloads page or your email confirmation
  2. Double click the file on your computer to install it
  3. Drag Plottr’s logo into your Applications folder
  4. From your Applications folder, double click Plottr (or open the Launchpad and click it from there)

Additional Notes:

  • Depending on your security settings, your Mac may notify you that you can’t open the file because it was downloaded from the internet (rather than the App store)
  • If so, visit the Security & Privacy settings of System Preferences > General tab, and click the notification to open the file anyway.
  • Now, open Plottr again
