Install (ECS 11.0)

Please call 423-368-2339 for answers, a walk-through, or assistance.

This installation is complete and fully operational.

Note that the default ECS configuration is somewhat minimal (as we assume nothing about your needs).
If you provide us a description of your needs/devices, we'll promptly customize it accordingly (no charge).

ECS contains no spyware/adware.
Nor does it use a central server, or upload any information to same.

ECS is a portable application (i.e. no files are created or modified outside of the ECS folder).
