About this task

To install MRE on your hard disk, complete the following steps:


  1. Launch the MRE_Setup application.
  2. Select the language you want for the setup process and click OK.
  3. From the Welcome window, read the software license agreement, select I accept the agreement and then click Next.
  4. Accept the default install location or click Browse to select an alternate location.
  5. Click Next.
  6. In the Username and Password fields, enter your username and password.
    Note: To configure the PDF Virtual Printer after you create a new account, log on after the setup completes.
  7. From the Select components list, choose to install the standalone MRE application, or both the MRE web version and standalone MRE application. Click Next.
  8. After the installation checks all the software prerequisites for the application, click Next.
  9. In the Encryption key field, enter an encryption key for data file cryptography. This encryption key should be unique for installation and has to be stored apart from MRE installation PC.
    Note: It is best practice to store the encryption key on a different PC to the one you use to access the MRE. Alternatively you can store the key in the cloud or on a memory stick.
    Note: After you define the encryption key, you cannot change it again.
    Note: Consider the following encryption key best practices:
    • Use 8-15 characters
    • One capital letter
    • One number
    • One special character
  10. Click Next.
  11. Click Install.
  12. Before the installation completes, Windows Authenticator requires your MRE password to add the cryptography file. From the command line window, enter your MRE password.
  13. Click Finish.
