We receive many reports of users with "not working" webcams whose cause is a block by the antivirus (it happens especially with AVG software).

The solution is to set the antivirus adding our application among those allowed to use the webcam.

For example, at this link you can find the instructions for doing this with AVG Internet Security; if you use another antivirus, please visit its website for the correct procedure.

By default setup installs the first database (OptoGait.sdf) and configuration file (OptoGait.exe.config) in the folder "Documents" of the current user.
The video files (.asf/.avi) and the report images (.bmp) are located in the subdirectories video and image.


Therefore, for your own safety and caution, please proceed with the Backup of this folder (possibly you can leave out the GMF subdirectory that you can restore by reinstalling the software)

A “normal” desktop or notebook with Microsoft Windows 10 is usually enough to run OptoGait software without problems. Please run Windows Update before the software installation.

Minumum requirements are:

  Minimum Suggested
OS Win 10 Win 10
CPU i5 i7
RAM 4 8
HD 80Gb SSD 256Gb
Graphic Board 1366x768 1920x1080 or higher
USB ports 1 3 USB 3.0

OptoGait needs Microsoft .NET Framework  (automatically installed from our setup if not found on the pc).

The software is officially supported ONLY on Intel PC with native installations of Microsoft Windows 10 and not in virtual environment.

OptoGait software was developed on Windows Systems with the Microsoft .Net Framework. There is no native version for Apple OSX.

It is possible to run Microsoft Windows in native mode (boot camp) or in virtualized environments (Vmware, Parallels, etc.) on modern Apple computers. Therefore, the answer is YES

We've conducted tests on MacBook pro with Vmware Fusion with very positive results. Conversely, we have issues (dimension of the webcam image) with the virtualization software Parallels. We recommend using Vmware. 

However the software is officially supported ONLY on Intel PC with native installations of Microsoft Windows and not in virtual environment.


Gyko can be used also in a stand-alone version, i.e. without needing to be associated with Optogait or Optojump Next, using the Gyko RePower software.
