Installation and Security

Minimum operating system requirements:

  • Windows OS 7 or later
  • Mac OS Yosemite (10.10) or later
  • Dedicated graphics card recommended for video playback

The Trigger Perpetual Single User License is supplied in the form of a USB security key (dongle). This needs to be plugged into a USB type A port on your computer. You may remove the dongle from your computer temporarily and Trigger will continue to function normally, for up to 5 hours. However whilst the dongle is detached you will not be able to save your project.

Registered Trigger license holders can buy a temporary (software) license through this website.

Mac Installation: once your download has finished don’t try to open the package straight away, as it probably will not work.

  • Navigate to the downloaded installation package in Finder (probably “your user/downloads”).
  • CTRL+CLICK on the file and select OPEN from the pop-up menu. Select OPEN from the next popup.
  • Close the Finder window (as the installation window will probably be hidden behind it) and then follow the installation instructions.

As from May 2018 (version 01.28.01), Ballinger Software will no longer release a separate Trial version of Trigger. Instead the licensable version will be available to download free, together with legacy versions through this website. The Trigger application will run for a limited period, without a dongle, for evaluation purposes only. Projects cannot be saved when running in Trial mode and the software must not be used to achieve any commercial gain.
