Summary : Try ZenTao Max free for 2 months! (Limited to 10 developer users and 20 lite users)
One-click installation package for Windows based on Xampp is offered to simplify the installation for you. Xampp is a well-known AMP integrated operating environment.

ZenTao Runner is upgraded to version 2.0.0. ZenTao Max is packaged separately for 64-bit and 32-bit. Please download the corresponding Windows one-click installation package according to your device.

Enable the Apache user authentication and modify MySQL password, and the fresh installation will prompt to install the VC environment.
