You also need to have an internet connection like I do here. You have to have downloaded the latest shell. I'll link to that in the description then run as Administrator. Now you click OK, Next, Next.. before you do that, take note of all these paths. These are where the drivers will be extracted to so you can navigate to them and install your drivers from there. Take note of this path also. This is where your z3x files will be extracted to. Click Next, click Next, click Install. Click on Next, Finish. This is going to launch the z3x shell. You can also navigate to the directory I mentioned earlier on. My C:, Program Files, this is a 64 bit PC, z3x folder and here you have all the drivers so you could install the box drivers and card drivers or z3x (jtag) or reader depending on what you need. I'll just install box drivers just for this guide. You can install card drivers. Click Finish. Now you go to the z3x shell, click on Settings, click on card info. Its going to display the box information to be sure its activated then you go to the hardware wizard tab. Wait while it connects to the server and then you click Next. Accept, Next. Now, this is asking you to update the card software so I click on Next. Wait while the card software is updated. Alright, card firmware updated! Click OK. These are the activated modules I have. Click on Next and then click on Finish. Now you can navigate around and even download the modules you need. This is for the support files. You can download the modules and other files from here. So that's how to setup your z3x pro box
