Starting iStamp

Double-click on the iStamp desktop icon, or select iStamp from the Windows Start menu to start the iStamp application. Upon startup, a window will appear prompting you to select a profile. Profiles allow iStamp to control more than one machine. The profile list will show profiles for every machine defined. Typically, you'll only see one profile listed.

Notice the "Open in Simulation Mode" check box in the lower left corner of the window. Simulation mode allows you to run the iStamp software without actually controlling a stamping machine. If you don't have a machine connected to your computer, check this box. Now choose a profile and click the Select button. The application will now open.
