Activating the R-Box Pearl Software on Windows (Quick Start Instructions - Condensed)

1.  Download rbox.zip file from https://www.radiosparx.com/software/rbox.zip and store in C:\RboxPearl\ folder.

2.  Right click on the rbox file in that folder and try to use 7-zip to "Extract here".

3.  After successful extraction, you can delete the rbox zip file, delete the rbox.apk file (which is for Android).

4.  Double-click the jarfix file to run it, install Java if necessary, then run jarfix again.

5.  Right-click on the rbox file (i.e. rbox.jar) and select Create Shortcut option on popup menu.

extra icons and select EXIT.

the settings.
