All installs must be completed from an account with administrator privileges. Any previous installations of Right Hemisphere Deep View or SAP 3D Viewer will be uninstalled.
Please ensure there are no open instances of the viewer during an install or uninstall. Proceeding in either case with active instances of the viewer may have unexpected results.
