Standard installation/update methods of LYNX , LYNX-X and TameFlow
Do you already have the LYNX software installed, but is it currently not working? The cause for this could be that LYNX isn't able to download the correct version of the software. Therefore, the first question is if you / the company you work for has it's own LYNX environment? If this is the case send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or the one responsible internally. If you are working on our regular "live" environment, you could download LYNX following one of the methods below:
Download LYNX, LYNX-X, and TameFlow via Microsoft App Installer
For Windows 10 + 11 (from version 1903)
For Windows 10 and 11 (version 1903 and higher), LYNX is available via the Microsoft App Installer. This download also includes LYNX TameFlow and LYNX-X.
Step 1: Do you already have LYNX, LYNX-X and LYNX Tameflow installed on your computer? First delete LYNX and LYNX Tameflow via Windows before you reinstall LYNX using this method.
Step 2: Download LYNX via: LYNX - App Installer. Open the downloaded file, and select Install.
You will see the following screen:
The Windows App Installer will also automatically check if the latest LYNX version has been installed.
If you are not getting the screen above, check if you have multiple versions of the app installer on your device and delete them then try again.
About the Appinstaller process
Automated Microsoft App Installer distribution and update process (zero maintenance)
Using the app installer allows an automatic update procedure. Every 8 hours, it will be checked if a new LYNX update is available. If this is the case, the update will be automatically downloaded and installed if the application is not running; otherwise, it will be installed as soon as the application is closed.
If a LYNX update is available users can continue working with the current LYNX version, while an automatic download takes place in the background. The new version of LYNX is installed if LYNX was not opened when the application was closed by the user.
Note: if you want, you can also trigger the update directly following the usual link but this is not required, as it happens automatically at a later point.
LYNX-X on multiple platforms
Besides LYNX and LYNX Tameflow, we have developed a new application which should eventually replace both of our applications. Which, for now, is called LYNX-X! Currently, this application includes My Activities, the Project-view, the Cards-view and the Tameflow-board. Therefore, it's mostly applicable for users that need to work on tasks or with cards. Do you want to give it a try?
Additional Installation Method: Microsoft Store
Go to the Microsoft Store and search for "LYNX Scheduler":
You can now download LYNX:
LYNX will be installed using the App Installer process, as described in this within method 1.
Additional Installation Options
The ability to install new software and also new software updates on the computer of a "company" user may be restricted as a result of the IT Policy of a company or organization. For example "admin" rights may be required to allow installation of new software, either in the user-directory or standard directory.
In this case the following options are available:
- LYNX can be installed in one central folder, controlled and updated by "IT". A user can start LYNX via a link pointing to the LYNX application in this folder. The update of the LYNX version in the central folder, is done automatically
- The LYNX Setup File has one of the highest Security Certificates - a possibility is that IT opens the installation and update process of LYNX specifically to LYNX users
- Users may have the possibility to request for temporary admin rights, through an automated procedure provided by IT
