Start your 30 Day FREE trial today by selecting the ThinLinX Global Mirrors link below, click on the Version of TLXOS that you want to trial. All TLXOS images are self extracting Windows .exe files which you double click to run, the image is written to a SD Card in the case of a Raspberry Pi using a USB to SD Card reader writer, you then insert the SD Card into the RPi and power it up, the 30 Day Free Trial License is automatically installed. In the case of RePC / SFF just insert a USB stick and TLXOS installer will be written to the USB stick then insert the USB stick into the device that you want to install TLXOS on and boot the device from the USB stick to run the installer.
The TLXOS .exe self-extractor is built using 7-Zip, using a 7-Zip capability whereby we include a “config.txt” file that contains instructions on what to do after extracting the exe to an anonymous temp folder. What we do is ask the user if they’re ready (using 7-Zip’s built-in prompt) and then run the included copy of Win32DiskImager 0.9 with the “.img” file as a parameter. Win32DiskImager doesn’t have any tweakable controls to speak of, and only lets you write to removable SD or USB drives, so it’s very safe
