Install CEE for Windows

To integrate CEE with OneFS, you must first install CEE on a computer that is running the Windows operating system.

Before you begin

Be prepared to extract files from the .iso file, as described in the following steps. If you are not familiar with the process, consider choosing one of the following methods:
  1. Install WinRAR or another suitable archival program that can open .iso files as an archive, and copy the files.
  2. Burn the image to a CD-ROM, and then copy the files.
  3. Install SlySoft Virtual CloneDrive, which allows you to mount an ISO image as a drive that you can copy files from.
