Please read the following important message
Thank you all for your interest in Adeona.
Please note that Adeona is an ongoing project and research prototype.
Adeona depends on OpenDHT, which
runs on PlanetLab. OpenDHT has
been experiencing some problems. We are working on a new, still privacy-respecting
version, that does not depend on OpenDHT/PlanetLab. It may take some
time to have this solution in place. In the meantime, if you would like
to show support for the OpenDHT project, please visit
its website or send an e-mail
to the OpenDHT mailing list
if you notice problems.
For now, we apologize for the problems with using Adeona, stemming
from the problems with OpenDHT, but we look forward to the new
version being out as soon as possible. If you would like to receive
announcements about Adeona, please subscribe to our RSS feed
available on the main page and throughout the website.
Thank you for your patience,
The Adeona Team
Windows XP/Vista Installation Guide
After clicking on the AdeonaSetup.exe icon, you will see this
installer screen. Note that you need administrator privileges to install
Select whether you want to install the Adeona Client and/or the Adeona recovery tools.
If you are installing the tracking client, leave both checked, and click next. Proceed
to step 3 below.
Otherwise, if you are just going to perform retrieval, and do not want the client installed
to run on the current system, then uncheck the "Adeona Client" option and click next to
proceed through the rest of the installation of the retrieval tools.
Select the destination directory for the installation. Default is C:\Program Files\Adeona
By clicking next, the programs will be installed. Assuming you've installed the
Adeona Client, the installer will prompt you for a password for encrypting
the new client instance's owner retrieval credentials. This password need not
be the same as your account password. Enter the same password twice.
A terminal window will appear while the Adeona Client is
initialized and executed. Press any key to clear the window once
this process completes. Finally, you'll see the following screen.
On your desktop, you will now see your private Adeona retrieval
credentials. The credentials within this file are encrypted with
the Adeona password you specified in the previous step. Please
save this file on another machine ( or e-mail it to yourself ) so
that you can use it in the event the your laptop is lost or stolen.
