Installing Intrexx requires at least Mac OS X 64 Bit update 10.8 (Mountain Lion). Once you have downloaded Intrexx, please launch the downloaded disk image file. Afterwards, Intrexx's graphical installation routine will start.

Select "Intrexx Full Installation" for a complete installation. The option "Intrexx Portal Server Production Installation" allows you to install Intrexx without demo portals. If Intrexx is already installed on a server and a connection from the client to the server is required, only installing the "Intrexx Portal Manager" will suffice.

Click on "OK".
