Install Datashare on Windows

Install Datashare will help you set up the software on your computer.

You will need Windows 10 Pro or more recent versions. For less recent versions, see here. 1. Go to the Datashare's website: https://datashare.icij.org/.

2. Click the blue button "DOWNLOAD FOR FREE".

3. You might see a window saying "Windows protected your computer". DO NOT click on the button "Don't run". Click on the text "More info":

When the next window opens, click on "Run anyway."

4. On the next window, click "Install."

Datashare is installing.

5. The system will ask you to reboot to restart your computer. Click on "Yes."

6. When you restart, another application will automatically open: Docker Desktop with its little whale icon. It will be visible on your Windows' menu bar, at the bottom right of your computer screen. It contains components necessary to have Datashare work. Docker Desktop will automatically be running when you use Datashare. You don't need an I.D. for this. To close this window, click on the white “x”on the right side of the red background.

That's all for now! Bravo! You're now ready to the next step. Let's open Datashare!
