STAAD.Pro CONNECT Edition Readme

To Install STAAD.Pro

Note: To discontinue installing the product at any time, click Cancel.

In order for the STAAD.Pro application to run, it needs a number of system requirements known as prerequisites, to be in place. To ensure that the necessary prerequisites are installed and of a suitable version, the STAAD.Pro installer is bundled into a package installer. This means that you do not have to download the prerequisites separately.

The bootstrap installer will download and "silently" install any missing prerequisites.

Note: When opening the Windows Control Panel > Programs and Features, the packager does not display, but all the individual installations that have been installed will be displayed and if required can be uninstalled separately.

Additionally, if one or more of the installations require a system reboot, this will be suppressed until all the installations have taken place. If necessary, you will be prompted to reboot once the installer package is finished.

Tip: You may click the help button (?) in the installer to open the product ReadMe.
