Installing the DataMiner Cube desktop application


Make sure the client machine meets the minimum requirements detailed in the DataMiner Client Requirements.

Standard installation

  1. Log on to


    Alternatively, you can also browse to the IP or hostname of your DMA or to https://[Your DMA]/root and log in there, depending on your configuration.

  2. Select Desktop installation and run the downloaded file.

  3. In the installation window, open the Options section and adjust the options depending on whether you want a shortcut to be added to the desktop and/or start menu and on whether you want DataMiner Cube to start with Windows.

  4. Click Install.

  • Once the desktop app has been installed, it will be updated automatically when you connect to other DataMiner versions.
  • Administrators can enforce the use of a specific Cube version when you connect to a DMA.

MSI installation

From DataMiner 10.2.0/10.2.2 onwards, it is also possible to install DataMiner Cube using an MSI installer, but this is not recommended as this requires manual updating when a new version is available. Typically, this is used by a system administrator to deploy DataMiner Cube in bulk on many client machines at the same time using some form of automation. The MSI installer can be found in the folder C:\Skyline DataMiner\Webpages\Tools\Installs on each DMA.

  • If you install DataMiner Cube with the MSI installer, you will also have to manually install the corresponding CefSharp version using the separate CefSharp MSI installation package, which is available on demand.
  • Prior to DataMiner 10.0.9, the MSI installer is available via the DataMiner landing page, via Install DataMiner Cube > Other install options > MSI installer.
  • The upgrade packages for the Main Release track contain the MSI installer for the latest Feature Release version of DataMiner Cube.
