# Get the latest EventBox image

Access from homepage: Select your event > Onsite > Settings > Visit Imager - Beta


This tool is in beta.

The Visit Imager allows you to create USB drives with the latest EventBox image. It only supports Windows 10.

An EventBox image is a bootable version of the EventBox. This means you can boot your laptop from the EventBox USB stick, allowing you to use the EventBox on your own laptop without overwriting your laptop's operating system or files.

  1. On the Visit Imager - Beta tab, select Download for Windows.

  2. If you get a warning message that "Visit Imager Setup....exe is not commonly downloaded and may be dangerous", select Keep.

  3. Click the installer download, or find the installer in your Downloads directory and double click it. This runs the installer.

  4. If you get a warning about an "Unknown publisher" or that Windows "prevented an unrecognized app from starting", select More info, then select Run anyway.

  5. If you get a message asking "Do you want to allow this app to make changes to your device?", with Windows Command Processor as the app name, select Yes.

  6. Select Select image to choose the version of EventBox you want.

  7. Select Select drive to choose the USB drive you want to image. The USB drive must be at least 16GB.


    Imaging the disk overwrites any data on the drive. The tool automatically selects a disk when it opens. Make sure you select the correct USB drive before writing the image.

    Imaging the disk reformats the it with a file system that Windows does not recognise. To remove EventBox from the USB stick (in order to use the USB stick for other things in the future) you need to reformat it again.

  8. Select Write. The Visit Imager downloads the EventBox image and writes it to the USB drive.
