Install iCafeMenu on HDD

install, icafemenu

Although it can operate without it, ICafeMenu was created for a diskless system like CCBoot. But you can also install iCafeCloud on a disk system .

  1. After initializing the Server and iCafeCloud, we now need to proceed with the client's local HDD setup.
  2. Open web admin and at settings - client settings scroll down where it says “run iCafeMenu on diskless” select NO  (Figure 1). iCafeMenu will auto update from server on each start.

  2. Make sure your network sharing is working and network discovery is working on both sides (server and client).
  3. Once the download has completed, you can open the shared folder from the client PC and copy the ICafeMenu to the game disk on the client (better to create a new folder named “ Internet Tools” and place iCafeMenu in it) while making sure that OverWolf is closed on the server (Figure 5)(Figure 9).
