If you don’t have the 2.0 version of the .Net framework installed, you need that first. This is a 22 MB download, so get it started and then go get yourself a snack (broadband) or some dinner (dialup).
How do I know if it’s installed?
To determine if you have it installed, open the Control Panel, go to Add/Remove Programs and look for “Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0”.
The zip file containing a Vixen directory with all required files (no installation program necessary).

|Basic Parallel||5.5 KiB||8-channel controller connected to the 8 data lines of a parallel port.|
|CurrentExecution||28.0 KiB||For use with a LedTriks or Virtual LedTriks display. This will show the name of the currently-executing sequence, formatted as you specified. Requires LedTriksUtil.|

|RGBLED||28.0 KiB||For use with RGBLED controllers. It only implements a very limited subset of the RGBLED controller currently.|
|Simple595||5.5 KiB||A simpler plugin for the 595 controller that can only use one parallel port at a time and takes less effort to setup.|
|Simple595p||20.0 KiB||Same as the Simple 595, but it allows the specification of a pulse width to lengthen the amount time a high or low pulse lasts. This can be helpful for some PCI parallel cards.|
|VirtualLedTriks||9.5 KiB||Displays the output of a LedTriks display with configurable board layout, LED color, size, and spacing. Requires LedTriksUtil.|
User Interface Plugins
|LedTriksUI||108.0 KiB||For LedTriks sequences. LedTriks is a DIY readerboard device created by Robert Jordan. Requires LedTriksUtil.|
|StandardScript||52.0 KiB||For creating sequences that are dynamic in nature, written in C#. Currently, only standard and LedTriks sequences can be authored in script. Requires LedTriksUtil.|
|StandardSequence||236.0 KiB||The standard Vixen sequence.|
|TriggerResponse||48.0 KiB||If you have hardware available for creating input triggers, this editor will let you create response sequences.|
|K8055Output||28.0 KiB||For use with the Velleman K8055 USB interface board. Also requires K8055.dll and K8055D.dll. These can be placed in the Plugins/Output directory.|
|AnalogSpectrum||128.0 KiB||Like the above-mentioned Frequency Spectrum add-in, but this version has two sliders per band -- lower and upper limits. The intensity of the resulting channel events are based on how far the band's decibel level is between the limits. i.e. If it reaches halfway between the limits at a given point in time, the channel's intensity will be approximately 50%.|
|CometConversion||24.0 KiB||Consumes a Comet playlist and generates one or more sequences from it.|
|DMXAddIn||20.0 KiB||Use of this add-in will maintain a constant DMX stream while the application is running, regardless of whether or not a sequence is executing. This only works with the Enttec Open DMX.|
|EFX-TEK Prop-2 Support Files||1.8 KiB||Support files for EFX-TEK Prop-1 Sequence Generator|
|MIDIReader||44.0 KiB||Parses a MIDI file and creates sequence events based on note-to-channel mappings that you create.|
|Prop1SeqGen||28.0 KiB||Automates the creation of a Prop-1 PBASIC program to turn your sequence into a stand-alone application. Also requires these two text files, placed in the AddIns directory.|
|Prop2SeqGen||28.0 KiB||Just like the Prop-1 version, but for the Prop-2. Also requires these two text files, placed in the AddIns directory.|
|RemoteClient||72.0 KiB||Allows for remote execution of sequences over a network or the internet. It will also allow you to synchronize multiple Vixen installations, allowing you to create shows that span the neighborhood or the world.

|WattMeter||36.0 KiB||Calculates the load generated by a sequence for all channels or any subset of channels. If you go over a specified threshold, it will tell you where. It will also give you a graph of the whole sequence's load over time so you can see it visually.|
