Install Notes for Putty on Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8

 

 

 

 

   Putty Installation on Windows Vista, 7, 8, and Windows 10 

 

To get around newer Windows security, Putty cannot be directly installed by clicking on the link. You must "Right-Click" the link and select "Save", "Save Target As...", or "Copy to Folder". Then, once downloaded, open the folder it was saved to and "Right-Click" the putty-xp2.exe program and select "Run as Administrator" to launch the installation.

 

   Windows 7, 8, and 10 - Settings changes Recommended:

 

1. Control Panel -> System & Security -> Power Options -> "Change when the Computer Sleeps" - Change to "Never" - Since going into Sleep Mode causes login disconnection from the ProCom server.

2. (In the Same sceeen) Go to "Advanced Settings" -> Change the "Power buttons on lid" -> "Sleep button Action" to "Do Nothing" for the same reason as the previous setting change.

3. In newer Windows 7, 8, and 10 PC's, you may also have to un-check the "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" so that Windows doesn't disconnect the ProCom login session. This can be found in Device Manager--> Network Adapters--> {select your network adapter}--> Power Management --> uncheck "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power"... making sure to "OK" these settings to exit (not "x"ing out).

 

 

If you have any trouble downloading or installing any of the ProCom client programs, please contact ProCom Technical Services at (800-997-6777)
