Not getting an Installer?

Post by oggy88 »

I've downloaded Handbrake from MajorGeeks. I get a zip file. I unzip into a folder on my desktop and the only exe file is Handbrake.exe clicking that just runs Handbrake.

How to I install properly.

This is on Windows 10 64 bits.

Thanks

Ok thanks, I guess I've downloaded the portable version. I'll get it from here as you say.
Thanks again.

The portable version doesn't need installation, just unzip and go. It also has some features that are hardware-dependent turned off.

By default, all features are enabled. it makes it easier to force certain features off but it doesn't by default.
