About this task
The imgctrl tool, once extracted from the package, does not require further installation. It is a self-contained binary with all components necessary to operate the Napatech PCIe SmartNICs.
- Copy the latest imgctrl tool package from supportportal.napatech.com (the Napatech Support Portal). Always use the latest available copy as the tool is fully backwards compatible.
- Extract the archived package to any folder for which you have proper write permissions.
For the Linux variant, run ./imgctrl.
For the Windows variant, either run imgctrl.exe or install using the installer.
