On this page you will learn everything about downloading, installing and uninstalling the TextEncoder.
Supported Operating Systems
The TextEncoder is currently available for the Windows operating system. The support of further operating systems is planned.
First, download the program from the download page. The program file is packed into a ZIP archive, which you should usually be able to unpack with your computer without additional software.
If you can not open the archive, we recommend the free program 7-Zip, which can handle ZIP files as well as many other archive formats. You can download 7-Zip for free from the page 7-zip.org. We recommend unpacking the program file before using the TextEncoder and not starting the program from the ZIP archive.
Installation on Windows
After unzipping the program file, you can already use the TextEncoder. Because the TextEncoder is a portable program, an installation is not required. Just click on the program file to start the TextEncoder.
You can save the program file in any folder on your computer, the program even runs from a USB stick or an external hard disk. If you want to use multiple versions of the TextEncoder in parallel (for example, with different configurations), you can simply copy each version of the program to a different folder.
If you still want to create a shortcut to the application, just right-click on the program file and then select "Create Shortcut" from the context menu . You can move this shortcut to any location on your computer and use it to access the TextEncoder from there.
Since the TextEncoder is a portable program, the TextEncoder does not dig deep into your operating system. Therefore, it is usually sufficient to simply delete the program file to completely remove the entire installation of the program from your computer.
If you have saved settings on your computer, you can delete them before deleting the program via the menu "Settings > Save or load settings". In this menu you will find under "Delete Settings" the button "Delete". This button permanently deletes all configurations and settings that the TextEncoder has stored on your computer.
Frequently asked questions about the installation and uninstallation of the TextEncoder are collected for you on the FAQ page of the TextEncoder.
