Installing Blink Personal Edition was hassle-free, and Blink can be quickly set up on a computer with the correct requirements. The software will prompt the user to choose the location they would like to install the software. It is usually to C:/Program Files/eEye Digital Security\Blink, however there was an option to choose another directory.
For a hassle-free installation the following system requirements are recommended by eEye Digital Security:
---Intel Pentium II CPU (minimum)
---64 MB RAM (or minimum required by XP or Vista)
---Windows 2000 Professional, Windows XP, or Windows Vista
---Windows 2000 Server, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008
The software will also need at least 50 MB of hard drive disk space to complete installation.
When Blink Personal Edition has gone through the initial installation and it is registered, the software will prompt the user to use auto-update to download the necessary software components or updates. A summary of all the components updated will be displayed at the end.
Blink Personal Edition can be used straight “out of the box," or configured to obtain the maximum protection for your personal computer. Configuring Blink allows the user to specify what “install states" they would like to turn off or on. For example, “Firewall Protection" can be enabled, and “Intrusion Prevention" disabled.
After Blink Personal Edition is installed, the user is transferred to the Blink home page.
