  1. Software
  • NET Framework 4.6.2

  • Microsoft Office 2010 or higher (not mandatory but highly recommended to properly import excel files)

After reviewing the requirements of the operating system and hardware, we can proceed to install Microsoft Framework 4.6.2 (which most likely it is already installed in most PCs) and Microsoft SQL Server 2016 or 2017, available at this link.

After installing the required software we can start to install Securcube®PhoneLog. The installation of the software does not require additional settings. Just run the setup provided by Securcube srl and lead to the thermal processed. The first time the program will ask you two things:

  • License Code (directly linked to the machine running the software)
  • The database connection

For the license code you will see a screen like this:


Copy the machine code and send it by mail or, if you are connected to the Internet, use the appropriate button to send the request directly. After entering the code you should see a screen like this:


The next step is the creation of the database. If you have properly installed the prerequisites simply click the button “Create Database” and after a few seconds the program will start.

If an error “Unable to connect to server” or “Can not connect to database.” Probably the installation is Microsoft SQL Server was not performed or it was not ended successfully. Check again MS SQL installation procedure.

Some advanced options can be selected using the ‘Advanced’ window, or you can edit them later, entering from Securcube®PhoneLog Top Menu (Settings – Database).

If everything goes well this is the first interface Securcube®PhoneLog. Now you can start your investigation creating a new case.
