Manual Installation Steps

It is recommended that you use the ClickOnce installer mentioned above. This will ensure that Git Extensions for SalesLogix is always up to date as it will automatically install updates for you of both the addin itself and the installer. However, if there are reasons you’d like to manually install Git Extensions for SalesLogix, follow these steps:

  1. Download the manual installer
  2. Copy the installer to a location where it will not be deleted or moved (you must keep the installer file in the same location since Application Architect will check for this when it closes to check for updates of the Git Extensions for SalesLogix addin – unless you check the box to disable automatic updates)
  3. Run the GitExtensionsInstaller.exe file. If you need a proxy configure the proxy settings. Click Next through to start the installation. The installer will download and installer the latest version of the DLL and install for you.
