How to Install the Desktop App
Let us show you how easy it is to install the Desktop App.
You may download the installer for your operating system through the Freelancer Desktop App page. The link to the installer can also be found at the page of your current hourly project.
On the modal pop-up page, choose your computer’s operating system (Windows, Linux or Mac). Whenever applicable, a dropdown list of installers will appear for each supported version of the operating system. Click Download Now.
Once downloaded, locate the installer file in your default download folder and double click it to install the application. The Freelancer Desktop App is ready to use once installation is complete.
Desktop App will work in virtual machines (VM) as long as the operating system is supported. However, we recommend that you let the Desktop App run on the VM's host machine. VM’s are simulated environments; there are subtle differences when running on an actual machine. This sometimes causes issues with the Desktop App.
