Summary

 Installation
DocuVieware Lite™ requires Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 or above.

Before diving into your first project, please download install the latest release available on our download page here: http://www.docuvieware.com/download/

Unlike DocuVieware™, DocuVieware Lite™ does not require that you register the license key within the license manager application. The license key you received is already registered and pre-activated.

The DocuVieware Lite™ license key also serves for both development and deployment.

 What is DocuVieware Lite™

DocuVieware Lite™ is a 100% Free Universal HTML5 Document Viewer that allows you to display more than 100 file formats including DOCX, TXT, PDF, SVG, WMF, EMF, TIFF, JPEG, PNG, JBIG2, JPEG 2000, WEBP, RAW camera formats and many more.

It comes with a built-in toolbar that allows easy and intuitive document navigation, zoom and rotation operations and offers the same high level performances and client/server optimizations than DocuVieware™.
