-===== A. What you should already ​have installed=====+===== A. Virtual Pinball Essentials ​you MUST have installed ​first! ​===== 
 + 
 +===== (Cabinet and Desktop users) ===== 
 + 
 +Virtual Pinball can be intimidating to get into. There are many parts of different software that are required. We try our best to keep the updated links for the "​essentials"​ all here. While not all of this software may by used by you directly…. it is needed as a whole. By installing the software below and in the proper order, you should have few problems getting everything running with the least path of resistance. You will also have what is "​required"​ for Pinup Player. 
 + 
 +It doesn'​t matter if you are a Cabinet user, or a single screen Desktop user… you are only a Visual Pinball player…. or just a Future Pinball player… or only an FX3 player… in the end you NEED all of this software setup FIRST! 
 + 
 +Even if you tried to install parts of Visual Pinball and other components before… I recommend going through the process of installing Visual Pinball using the AIO Installer and the other programs that follow after, listed here. 
 + 
 +So let's dive in, and make sure you do things right the first time… 
 + 
 +**VIDEO GUIDE:** 
 + 
 +Like a video guide to follow along? Try watching TerryRed'​s **Virtual Pinball Essentials** that takes you through the entire install process using this wiki page! 
 + 
 +[[https://​youtu.be/​nI8wD4Pwvfg|https://​youtu.be/​nI8wD4Pwvfg]] 
 + 
 +**ANTI-VIRUS SOFTWARE!** 
 + 
 +If you use any kind of Anti-Virus or Malware software… it is HIGHLY recommend that you DISABLE it while installing ALL software! Some parts may get flagged and removed even though it is safe and clean. It is also very important to add "​exceptions"​ to the folders where you install all of this software… including any Pinup related software. You have been warned! 
 + 
 +**<font inherit/​inherit;;#​e74c3c;;​inherit>//​LET'​S BE CLEAR. THE #1 most common issue in setting up PinUP is your ANTI-VIRUS. If you use the Windows GUI and turn off defender (windows will AUTOMATICALLY turn it back on after a while). The only method is to ADD exceptions for PinUP folder and your virtual pinball folders (or remove permanently/​entirely anti-virus through group-policies or other methods).//</​font>​**
