Nautilus Setup                                                                                      updated to version 2.4.1147 on Windows 10 and 11




1)      If you have Microsoft Office installed on your computer, you must be sure that is the 32bit version, as Nautilus is not compatible with Office 64bit. To check your Office version, see this link:
There is no difference in functionality between 32 and 64 bit versions, so if you have the 64bit installed, you can remove it and download and install the 32bit version
IMPORTANT NOTE: Just Office must be 32bit, Windows itself can be 64bit


2)      It’s also recommended to temporarily disable your anti-virus protection, otherwise some system files needed by Nautilus could not be installed

3)      Minimum screen resolution must be 1600x900 px. If you use a lower resolution, certain areas of application screens can be hidden.
Display zoom/scale is advised to be 100%; it's not mandatory, but if you set it differently, certain buttons on the main menu page needs some tricks to be clicked properly.


To setup Nautilus 2.4 on your computer, please follow these steps:

1.       If you have not already done, download the full setup or the update file from the Support page, and save it to a convenient location.
NOTE: if Microsoft Defender warn you about the downloading of the stup file, click on the “More info” link and then on the “Run anyway” button

2.       When the download is finished, run it as Administrator (click on the file with right mouse button and select “Run as Administrator”)
If a warning message advice you about the security risk of executing a program, just click YES

6.       Now you will be prompted to select two folders: the first one is used by all import/export functions, and the second one used to save backups.
