Installing Zoom Client (Windows)

There is no need to install Zoom Client on a computer that already has Zoom Server. Zoom Client is automatically installed with the Zoom Server.

The following instructions describe the steps to install Evolphin Zoom Client on a Windows computer.

Installing Zoom

  1. Extract the downloaded *.zip file.
  2. Run setup.exe from the extracted files.
  3. Follow the instructions in the installation wizard.

If Using Adobe Creative Cloud

It is a good practice to set the default Zoom Server on your Zoom Client machine. This allows your Zoom Client to instantly connect with that server without any delay in asking for a URL.

These settings are valid for Zoom 7.2 and below. Follow here for Zoom 7.3 and above.

Follow these steps to set a default Zoom Server on your Zoom Client machine:

  1. For a Mac machine, left-click the  icon in the menu bar. For a Windows machine, right-click on the  icon in the system tray.
  2. Select Settings from the Z-menu.

  3. Select Server/WC Settings from the sidebar in the Settings window.

  4. Click Add.

  5. Set the URL to your Zoom Server in the Server box.
    Ex. http://<MyZoomServer>:8880
    Port 8880 is typically the port used by the Zoom Client to connect to the Zoom Server.
  6. Under Alias, set an alias name for the Zoom Server.
    Ex. Server12
    The alias can be used in the Zoom interface as a replacement for the Server URL. Make sure the server alias does not contain any whitespace characters.
  7. Click Add.

  8. If prompted, log into the Zoom Server using your Zoom credentials.
  9. Select your newly created Zoom Server in the Server and Working Copy Settings list.
  10. Click Make Default.

  11. Click OK when informed about the auto-sync of client properties.
  12. To make sure that your Zoom Client always connects to the same default Zoom Server, check Always Use Default.
