How to download and run Card Recon



Upon purchasing a Card Recon license, you can immediately access your software by downloading it from the Ground Labs Portal. This article explains the process of doing this.


Downloading the product

  2. Once logged in, the list of available downloads for Card Recon is displayed.

  3. Download the product by clicking the 'Download' button at the right-hand side, making sure to choose the appropriate version for your platform
