Installing .NET 6

Before using ByteSync, you must make sure that the .NET 6 Framework is installed on the machine.

To check this, you can open a command line and run the following command: dotnet --info

Deploying the installable version

Download the package. Run the DMG file and drag and drop the ByteSync icon to the desired location.

ByteSync will work from the Applications folder just like from any other folder.

Updating ByteSync

The software update can be done :

  • From the main window of ByteSync. It is necessary to have write access to the directory where the solution has been installed.
  • From the command line with the following command: ByteSync -update [mandatory|recommended|optional].
    Specify mandatory to target the next mandatory version, recommended for the next recommended version and optional for the next optional version. If you omit this parameter, ByteSync will target the next proposed update level in the priority order Mandatory, Recommended, Optional.

In both cases, it is necessary to have write access to the directory where the solution was installed.
