Free Trial – eCrisper Kiosk Software (version 3.6 – Final version – will no longer be updated)

This free trial allows you to experience eCrisper first hand. If you have a Mac computer (64 bit) running Mac OS X 10.6 to macOS 11.3, you’re good to go. Note that eCrisper might not run in future versions of macOS.

It contains a full version except for an Evaluation Copy button on the main window. This button closes eCrisper and returns the user to the desktop.

Installing eCrisper

Once the download has completed and you have accepted the license agreement, you will be presented with a window with two icons. Drag the eCrisper icon onto the Applications icon. This will copy eCrisper to your Applications folder from which you can run it.

Displaying the Preferences window

Once eCrisper is running, you can display the Preferences window by pressing the command key and the comma key (,) at the same time. When asked for a password, press the return key. A password is not required with an unregistered version.

Exiting eCrisper

You can exit eCrisper by clicking on the Return to Desktop button on the General pane of the Preferences window. You can also use the Evaluation Copy button on the main menu while using an unregistered copy.
