System requirements

  • To tell if your computer is running a 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows:
    • Windows 8 & 10: right-click Start and then click System.
    • Windows 7: click the Start button, right-click Computer, and then click Properties.
    The system type is listed in the System section.
  • The installer file installs both SecureFX and SecureCRT.
  • SecureFX and SecureCRT share session settings, so configuring a connection to a particular server only needs to be done once in order to be available to both programs.
  • SecureFX is subject to export control. This software may not be downloaded or otherwise exported or re-exported to any country subject to U.S. trade sanctions governing the software.
