This page describes the steps performed to manually install TytanNET AddIn.

Introduction

Even since TytanNET AddIn is its own installer it might be useful to know, how to install it manually. Just in case something went wrong or the need of removing it permanently. Manual installation is not a complicated task. Following 'Details' covers all actions needed to do it.

The most complicated task here is an edition of .AddIn file. There are no registry modifications need.
Only registering/unregistering code generators will update registry and requires administrator rights.
