Installing Commander on a PC

Commander 3 is the software that allows you to connect a Windows or Mac computer to an E-Stim Systems 2B via the Digital Link Interface and allows you to not only control the 2B from your computer, but also allows you to record and playback 'sessions'. 

Although Commander 3 has been developed and tested on on Windows 10, it has been tested on Windows 7, and should work on Windows 8 and 8.1. We also offer support for Commander 3 on a Mac and offer  a Linux version of Commander 3 although the Linux version is not actively supported at this time.

Antivirus Software

In common with many other applications and programs you may need to disable your Antivirus software and have admin permissions in order to install Commander 3. Once the software has been installed correctly your Antivirus can be switched back on.

Install from a USB Stick

If you have been supplied with Commander 3 on a USB stick then plug the USB stick into a spare USB port on your computer, navigate to the USB stick directory and double click on 'Setup Commander 3.exe'
