Download the installer from sourceforge mirror (do not use other sites for security reason, there are ohter sites offering emule morph, some contain spyware, some require a activion code, emule morph is absloutely free, no spyware, source provided)

You will need poweruser rights to run the installer. If you do not have enough rights you wil have to download the binary and make the icons manualy.

YOu can use the installer to make a fresh installation of emule in a new directory or upgrade (or downgrade) from a other emule (official or mod) installation. No data should be lost by running the installer.


THe installer will try to detect your language. For other languages than above the morph strings will not be translated, however the strings from official are.


A introdcution with the version is display. click next.


emule is distributed under the GPL licence. It states you are free to distribute this osftware, as long as you also disitbute the source and log all the changes you made to it. Your only option is to accept this and then press next.



a question is asked where the emule.exe program should be installed. Normally the program files direcoty is fine. Later you can add addition directories in emule where to share the files from and to


Required files is the minimal installtion. This is mainly emule.exe and the webserver directory. Some files in the config directory will be added if they are not already tgere. This is almost identcal to the binary.

Helpfiles english and german helpfiles as distributed with official.

language dll other than english Translations of morph are stored in .dll files in the lang directory. eMule morph is standard running in english. If you set this option all the morph strings will run in native language if that lanaguage is supported.

shell extension for part and met files in explorer shows extra information on .part and .met file (those are the temproy files n the temp directory during downloading. See shell extension at emule project

extra configution files like ipfilter.dat and ipcountry.cvs. YOu start with version of these file to have a little securty and have the country flags working. It is recommented you download these files later manually to get the latest version.

Tools from other projects Unrar and mediainfo is not part of emule. These are distubuted inte isntaler for your conveniance.

unrar.dll alllows you to download rarred ipfilter files.

mediainfo.dll allows you to get some extra information out of media files (like avi and mp4). THis is visible in file details dialogs.


Tell where in the start menu emule should be isntalled. eMule is fine. YOu can also use a deepder tree like 'p2p\emule' which will create a subfolder in the start menu "p2p" which will contain a emule folder.


location of datafiles In versions before emule 0.48 datafiles where stored in c:\program files\emule (or wherever you installed eMule. SInce 0.48a it is possible to also store the config files in a user directory. In that case downloaded files will be stored in a sub directory of "my documents" instead of "c:\programfiles\emule\incoming". Under vista an addition otpion is displayed. THe actuall location id depening on your windows installation.

Create desktop icon Wether or not a icon for emule will be create at the desktop.

add a exception to the windows firewall THe installer will try to create an exception for eMule in the windows firewall. eMule needs to be able to accept incoming connections for optimal performance (highid). If you use a antivirus program that acts as a firewall you have to create a rule in it manully or do so when the firewll asks that question when running eMule.

Register emule to take ed2k links When you click on a ed2k link in webpage this will activate eMule and let emule handle the link. THe ed2k link can also be made in emule. Additional it allows to send file with .emulecollection to eMule.

confirm the settings you made and


just let it install the files.

When finished it will show an option to directly start eMule (NOT under vista). you can do so. A system reboot is not required.
