*update: v0.82 released.
Download the program file from the Download list on the left hand side of the homepage. You will need to install Java
, if you dont have it already.
Installing Free Rapid 0.81, just means extracting FreeRapid-0.81.zip
, 5.30MB to a directory of your choice. I have made both the Windows and Mac versions available through this instructable, because I experience some slow connections some times.
I suggest you install it to C:/Program Files/
now, if you are on your home computer. I have one at home and one of a flash drive that I carry around with me. Works great.
This nifty program is written in Java, so its largly platform independent, although a MacOSX dmg installation package is made available for those lazy Mac users :)
Run the program by locating frd.exe and you will see a nice Java UI. There are only a hand full of settings that you need to change from the default to make this little program work wonders. In the next step, I show you the best configuration settings for seamless downloading, without any interaction for you >>
