Section 3: Cloudpaging Player
What software do I need to install in my machine?
Before you can use any application from Cloudpaging CDN, you will need to install the Player onto your machine. The Player is a client tool that works with other parts of Cloudpaging CDN system so that you can launch Windows applications directly without downloading and installing them.

To install the Player, please log in to the Cloudpaging CDN portal and click "Download Numecent Player" button. This will download a Windows Installer for you. Just like any other Windows application you may have installed, installing the Player is completely hassle-free. You can also completely uninstall or upgrade the Player from your Windows' Control Panel.
What are system requirements for the Player?
The Player itself is a lightweight client tool and requires very little system resources. However, depending on the applications you are running, we recommend the following requirements for your machine:
- Operating System: Windows (Vista SP2, Windows 7, 8 and 10)
- Memory: 1 GB
- Disk: 10 GB free space
- Internet Connection
How do I run applications?
This depends on the content packaging, however in most cases you can double click the application in the player or select the icon in Windows normally used to launch the application.
How can I remove an application? Is it completely removed from my machine?
To remove unwanted applications, single click on the application in the Player and simply click the "Remove" button in your Player. This will remove the application completely and gracefully, just like you never had the application at all.
Is there any private information collected?
No, we don't collect any private information from you or your machine.
Where is my data (e.g., .doc files) saved?
Your data will be saved on your Windows system as normal. Cloudpaging CDN leaves your data where it is today. We don't force your data into the Cloud.
