Installing & Uninstalling

Installing

Download the ManyCam installer and launch it. You will see the ManyCam Setup dialog where you can choose between the Standard or Custom installation. The “Standard” option is selected by default. Select “Custom” if you want to choose where to install ManyCam, what shortcuts to create, whether you would like to run ManyCam on startup and keep your video effects from previous versions. Make your choice, then click “I agree – install”. Setup will now extract the ManyCam files. After the setup is finished, click “Finish”. ManyCam is now installed and ready for use.

File Locations for Manual Uninstall (Not Recommended)
