How to install RasPlex using windows.

Download RasPlex files

In order to set up your SD Card with RasPlex you will need download the following files:

1) RasPlex Image file at Sourcefourge here.
2) Win32 Disk Imager which will allow you to write the RasPlex image to your SD card.
3) A program capable of extracting .gz files such as WinRar

Install RasPlex to your SD Card

Extract the RasPlex image file from the compressed download and run the install for Win32 Disk Imager. Once both of these are done, open up the Disk Imager and click the "select an image" button.

Select your RasPlex Image

Next, find your RasPlex image on your system then select it (left click once) and click the open button.
