    The Haptic Composer will be downloaded as a compressed file. To open it, you can use an application like 7zip. Once unzipped, you have access to a .exe file.

  • Double click on the file to start the installation. We will first ask you to choose the destination folder. 



Then it will only take a few minutes to complete the installation. You'll be able to add a shortcut to your desktop and open it directly at the end of this installation.





  • Once opened, you will first have to connect with the email and the password you created your account. This will be very useful when you want to test your material on your phone (check our features to know more about it).




  • Before using the haptic composer, we suggest you have a look at the 2 minutes onboarding which introduces you to the main features of the tool. You can skip it if you want by clicking on the button on the top right.
