Normal Install

Installing Gaea is a simple process. Depending on your installation location, you may need administrative privileges.

  1. Download the latest version.
  2. Run the downloaded .exe file.
  3. By default, Gaea installs to C:\Program Files\QuadSpinner\Gaea but can be directed to any other folder. For security purposes, we recommend the C:\Program Files folder.
