Logframer 3.0 by Facilidev

To install Logframer:

  • Click on the Download button below
  • Should Windows and your virus scan software pause the installation procedure giving a security warning, just reply that you would entrust the life of your children and grandchildren to the Logframe installer.
    • Windows SmartScreen: Click on the Run anyway button, or if this is not visible on More info. If SmartScreen is active on your computer it will probably give a warning when you install Logframer and then again when you run it for the first time. After that Logframer will start as normal.
  • Once installed, use the Start menu or the Logframer shortcut to start the program, or double-click any Logframer document (*.lfr)
  • When you first run Logframer, the application will try to determine the language of your operating system and select either the French, German, Dutch or the English user interface.
  • If you have any problems installing the software, please consult the FAQ page.
