FireDaemon Zero Installation

FireDaemon Zero is a standalone software product. The FireDaemon Zero installer is supplied as an executable file (.exe).

Two versions of the installer are provided - one is for 32-bit Microsoft Windows operating systems, the other is for 64-bit Microsoft Windows operating systems. The name of the 32-bit installer file is FireDaemon-Zero-x86-2.6.NN.exe. The name of the 64-bit installer file is FireDaemon-Zero-x64-2.6.NN.exe. (in both cases, NN is the version number of the v2.5 release). For the remainder of this guide, we will refer to the FireDaemon Zero installer as FireDaemon-Zero.exe.

You can download the FireDaemon Zero retail installer from the FireDaemon website. Please ensure you review the FireDaemon Zero Compatibility and Support Matrix and FireDaemon Zero and ZeroInput Deployment Matrix prior to attempting to install FireDaemon Zero.

  • Installing the 32-bit version of FireDaemon Zero on a 64-bit operating system environment is not possible.
