Microsoft requirements. Netkiosk will not work without it!
ChromeKiosk and Netkiosk imperi require Microsoft .NET Framework 4.7.2
Microsoft .NET Framework 4.7.2 is already installed by default on Windows 10 and 11. If you are still using Windows 7, or 8 you can manually install Microsoft.NET Framework 4.7.2
Install these if Netkiosk does not run properly for you the first time. They are also included with the NetkioskSetup.exe installation program and you will find copies of them on your Windows desktop. To make sure you have the latest version you can also download them here.
NET Framework is required by Windows for any App developed using Microsoft Visual Studio.You only need to install these ones on the PC where you run Netkiosk. We keep the installation separate in case you already have them installed. You can download Microsoft .NET Framework 4.7.2 from the official Microsoft website.
Microsoft requirements. ChromeKiosk does NOT need this one. Netkiosk imperi Pro will not work without it!
2) Netkiosk imperi requires Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributal.
To be able for Netkiosk imperi to run it needs Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributal. This is very common for Windows application developed using Visual Studio such as Netkiosk. (This might not be installed on your Windows version.) To make it easier for you we have included the latest versions with the installation. But you can also download these direct from the Microsoft website.
NOTE: Netkiosk requires BOTH vc_redist.x86 and vc_redist.x64 to work properly.
After you have downloaded Microsoft Visual C++ redistributals you install them both. You only need to install these ones on each PC where you will run Netkiosk. Netkiosk will then start as expected.
Below a screen shot from the Microsoft website with the version you need.

Netkiosk imperi Pro updates
Chromium is constantly being updated with new features and security options. We’ll update Netkiosk to maintain maximum security and ease of use. We’ll check if any Chromium updates will benefit our custom chromium version and, of course, our users. Only then will we decide if we’ll implement these updates in Netkiosk. As our chromium version is a secure kiosk version we do not push automatic chromium updates.
Any core chromium updates we provide need to be manually installed by admin. Any updates are only provided twice a year for minimal interruption. Any updates can be directly downloaded via our website. We can provide you with an update at any time.
You need to make sure you have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed if you want to allow proper access to PDF files and your Flash player is up to date. Please note that running local PDF or html files is NOT allowed in Netkiosk. If you require this you will need to purchase one of our Enterprise versions. Note: Please make sure that you do not install, and try to run, each Netkiosk version on the same PC, at the same time.
