contentGATE Installation manual

4.Installation of contentGATE

The user’s MS Outlook bitness must be considered before the installation process is started. 32-bit and 64-bit contentGATE versions have separate setups.

It is highly recommended to use 64-bit contentGATE setup whenever possible. If you want to use a 32-bit setup, please contact our professional Support Team (

Note: 32-bit contentGATE setup is required if contentGATE must be run on a 32-bit operation system, or you use 32-bit version of MS Outlook and it cannot be upgraded to 64-bit version due to another applications running with it.

The contentGATE application installs simply in few moments. Just run the contentGATE_setup_xxx.msi. On the Welcome page click Next.
