So, I downloaded Kerkythea for Windows and ran the .exe. I went ahead and chose not to make a shortcut, usually I don’t need one and I don’t like cluttering up my desktop when there are lots of other ways to start programs.
WELL, I looked in the Windows program menu, and it’s not there. So, I thought, maybe I need the plugin also, so I downloaded that. That’s showing up in SU just fine, but I haven’t done anything with it just yet.
I’m still trying to figure out how to install standalone Kerkythea??? I found the folder in my Programs folder, and there are two exe’s in there, one for x86 and one you would call regular, I guess… I tried double clicking on both, and NOTHING HAPPENS. I tried running as admin on both, and still, nothing happens. (I have 64-bit Windows.)
I really don’t like this approach - double clicking exe’s is really a last resort imo, but I can’t find any directions or details about what to expect after downloading. What am I doing wrong?
I really wanted this to work, as my computer can’t really handle the type of rendering that happens within SU - I already tried the Twilight extension, and it crashes too much. From what I’ve read in the forums, Kerkythea running separately seems like (it could be) a great solution, if I can get it to work!
Also, do you need both, the program and the plugin? With a slow computer, am I better off without the plugin, if I can get the program to work?
