Requires: Mac OS X 10.2 or above. PowerPC G4 or Intel.
Install: Extract it from the DMG. Drop the program to /Applications or /Users/username/Applications. Double-click the Padded application to start.
Removal: Delete the application.
Requires: Kernel 2.2.14 or above. Pentium CPU or above, X11. LibSSL is recommended but not essential.
Install: Install dependencies, where needed. Copy the executable to /usr/local/bin and grant it execute permissions: chmod 755 /usr/local/bin/Padded.
32-bit releases will need 32-bit support libraries installed, when added to a 64-bit Linux OS.
Removal: Delete the binary executable.
Trouble-shooting: Resolving Padded's LibSSL dependencies can be an issue for new users.
From v2.12, Padded can do without LibSSL on Linux by disabling the functionality which depends on it.
Requires: Microsoft Windows 98 - Windows 10.
Install: No installation needed. Double-click the executable to start.
WINE allows you to run the Windows executible on a wide range of other operating systems (including FreeBSD, PC-BSD, OpenBSD, Solaris, Linux and BeOS).
Wine is now considered stable. Padded runs well, needing only the base Wine install to function, no extensions.
Requires: Wine 0.9.25 or better.
Install: Ensure you have Wine installed. Copy the executable to a handy location. Run it using: wine ./Padded.exe
While ReactOS is itself in alpha-level development, Padded generally works well on ReactOS 0.4 and above.
Requires: ReactOS 0.3.4 or better. ReactOS 0.4.x, for best results.
Install: See "Windows (Microsoft)" section above.
