Table of contents > Installation

Download CubeBackup from the CubeBackup download page, then double-click the setup file to start the installation.

The installation will automatically create an entry in the Start Menu, as well as a desktop shortcut.

Note: CubeBackup requires Microsoft .Net Framework 4.0 to be installed on the target computer. This version of .Net Framework may already be preinstalled on some computers, however, it might be absent on some computers. The setup process will detect the absence of the .Net Framework and will automatically install it if necessary. This process may take several minutes.


Some users running the authorization process for the first time may encounter an authorization failure with an error message: "The authorization might fail if your .NET framework is not patched. The hotfix KB1248871 must be applied."

This is caused by infamous bugs in the .Net Framework 4.0 when it is not patched with the hotfix (KB2468871). Download the hotfix here, and install it. You may be required to restart your computer before the update takes effect.
