  7. In the Orsim Tools window, double-click on "Orsim Updater":


  8. The Orsim Updater will find the appropriate module on the USB drive that you have inserted and start the installer for you. Your installer will then guide you through the rest of the process.

    • If the Orsim Updater tells you that it could not find the USB drive, make sure your USB stick is inserted properly and try again.

    • If the Orsim Updater tells you that it could not find an appropriate module, please ensure that you have correctly completed step 4 above.

Install Option 2:

Manual USB Setup

for Mac, Windows or Linux

  1. Start by downloading the Module by clicking here.

  2. Please select a new, or newly formatted USB drive which has been scanned for viruses, to reduce the chances of malware or viruses being transferred to your ORSIM laptop. Additionally, the USB stick you use must not contain any other ORSIM updates. Plug this into a free USB port on your current computer.

  3. Copy the installer you have downloaded into the "root" of your USB drive, ie: not inside a folder on the USB drive. Do not rename the installer; it must keep its original file name.

    The method used to copy the installer to the USB drive varies greatly depending on your computers operating system and how it is setup. Typically:

    On MacOS: Open Finder, locate the installer you have just downloaded (in the "Downloads" folder and with a name starting with "Orsim"), then drag it into your USB drive, which will usually be displayed with its name under "Devices" on the left hand side of the screen:
    On Windows: Open Windows File Explorer, locate the installer you have just downloaded (usually in the "Downloads" folder by default and with a name starting with "Orsim"), then drag'n'drop or copy/paste it into your USB drive, which will usually be displayed with its name and a drive-letter near the bottom of the list on the left hand side of the screen:


  4. After the copy is complete, eject the USB drive and plug it into your ORSIM Laptop.

  5. After starting your ORSIM Laptop, double-click on the "Orsim Tools" icon:


  6. In the Orsim Tools window, double-click on "Orsim Updater":


  7. The Orsim Updater will find the appropriate module on the USB drive that you have inserted and start the installer for you. Your installer will then guide you through the rest of the process.

    • If the Orsim Updater tells you that it could not find the USB drive, make sure your USB stick is inserted properly and try again.

    • If the Orsim Updater tells you that it could not find an appropriate update, check:
      • The module file must be in the “root” of the USB drive, ie: not inside a folder.

      • There must only be one module file on the USB drive at a time.
