Installing Safeguard Desktop Player

This section provides information on how to install the Safeguard Desktop Player application in different operating systems.

Safeguard Desktop Player system requirements

The Safeguard Desktop Player application supports the following operating systems:

  • Microsoft Windows:

    64-bit version of Windows 7 or newer. Install the appropriate driver for your graphic card.

  • Linux:

    RHEL 7, CentOS 7, or newer. The Safeguard Desktop Player application will probably run on other distributions as well that have at least libc6 version 2.17 installed.

    Depending on the distribution, you will need to install the following packages:

    • On Debian-based GNU/Linux:

      • libxcb-render-util0

      • libxcb-keysyms1

      • libxcb-image0

      • libxcb-randr0

      • libxcb-xkb1

      • libxcb-xinerama0

      • libxcb-icccm4

    • On CentOS/Red Hat:

      • xcb-util-renderutil

      • xcb-util-keysyms

      • xcb-util-image

  • Mac:

    macOS Catalina 10.15, or newer.

To install the Safeguard Desktop Player application, you need about 200MB disk space, and a temporarily used disk space to store the audit trails that are replayed. The size of the temporary files depends on the size of the replayed audit trails.

You can install the Safeguard Desktop Player application with user privileges.
