Downloading the RFCx Uploader

Overview

This article walks through how to download the RFCx Uploader App. If you upload recordings without creating a project first, Arbimon will create a default project for you in the following format your name-project. You can either upload audio into that project and use that project, or move that audio to a project that already exists in the system. 

If you don't want your audio to be stored in this default project and don't have another project to move it to, you'll need to create a new project. Reference 1.1-Create a Project.

Get Started

1. In a project in Arbimon, go to the Data tab.

2. On the left side of the screen, open the uploads tab. The link to download the Ingest App for Mac and Windows is then hyperlinked in the top right corner. To start the download, press on either Mac or Windows.

3. Once the download has completed, go to your downloads folder and open the file. Your computer will then direct you through steps to open the app. Here is what it will look like for the different operating systems.

For Mac Users

When Download for: Mac is selected, a download will be started. The downloaded file can then be accessed by going to your Mac's Finder and opening the downloads tab.

Then open the .dmg file. An installer window will pop up.

Drag the RFCx icon to the applications folder to finish installing the uploader app. The app can now be found in your Applications folder.


For Windows Users

The link to download the RFCx Uploader for Mac and Windows is hyperlinked in the top right corner. To start the download, click on either the Windows link. You will see the installer file in the bottom left-hand corner of your screen. Click on the installer file once it has finished downloading. 

You will get a Windows popup message asking if you are sure you want to run the installer. This is normal. Click on More info then Run anyway.

You will see a notification that the installation is in progress and then the app should open automatically to the login page where you can follow the steps outlined in Using the RFCx Uploader. Great work!
