Install via Download



1. Download the latest release of the PhraseApp Client for Mac OS X.

2. Store the executable at a location where it can be found by the system or create a symlink (see PATH)

3. Set the executable flag to make the binary executable if necessary:

$ cd path/to/phraseapp && chmod +x phraseapp

4. You should now be able to execute the PhraseApp Client:

$ phraseapp
# or:
$ /path/to/phraseapp/phraseapp

Windows

1. Download the latest release of the PhraseApp Client for Windows.

2. Save the downloaded file to any path on your Computer, we suggest:

C:\Program Files\PhraseApp\phraseapp.exe
(You need admin-rights to save the phraseapp.exe to this path)

The exact path may vary. To get to your program files, type %ProgramW6432% into your windows explorer.

It is very important to rename the downloaded file from phraseapp_windows_amd64.exe to phraseapp.exe

3. Open the CMD as Administrator and run this command:

SETX /M PATH "%PATH%;C:\Program Files\PhraseApp"

Do not add phraseapp.exe to the end of the path.
If you used a different path in step one, replace C:\Program Files\PhraseApp with the path you saved the phraseapp.exe to.

4. You should now be able to use the PhraseApp Client in your CMD like this:

> phraseapp
# or:
> C:\Program Files\PhraseApp\phraseapp.exe

Linux

1. Download the latest release of the PhraseApp Client for Linux.

2. Store the executable at a location where it can be found by the system or create a symlink (see PATH).

3. Set the executable flag to make the binary executable if necessary:

$ cd path/to/phraseapp && chmod +x phraseapp
