Check with the Wizardry and Steamworks:Support group if you need help with Corrade installs on operating systems other than MS-Windows.

Windows Installation

These instructions are provided by Aphrodite Atlas.

1) Download the latest Corrade Progressive build for Windows.
2) Unpack the .zip file to the location you want it to run from
3) Run configurator.exe to configure your bot
4) At the lower right, use the drop-down to select ADVANCED
A) On the Client tab:
1) Input the bot account's name
2) Input the bot account's password
3) Change start location to desired location (provide a Login URL (SLURL) if you don't want "last location" or "home" used.)
4) Save the file as "Corrade.ini"
B) On the Masters tab:
1) Remove the example master names
2) Click the Add Master button
3) Add yourself as a master
4) Save the file as Corrade.ini
C) On the Groups tab:
1) Remove (or edit) the example groups
2) Remember to click Add Group when creating a new group
3) Replace with info for the group you want the bot to give invitations to and handle ejects for
4) Under group permissions you MUST check/tick the "groups" box, anything else is optional. NOTE: Possibly you'll need to tick all the permissions to get Corrade to respond when you add it to CasperLet. Try with just "groups"; if it doesn't work, come back to configurator.ini, select all the permissions, save, and restart Corrade, then test again.
5) The password you enter on this tab is your "Security Code" - this is not the SL account password! Numbers, letters, symbols are ok.
6) "Workers" = maximum simultaneous tasks. Up to 10 for best results.
7) Specify a database in the form of databasename.db'
8) Specify a log file location and filename if you enable chat logging
9) Save the file as Corrade.ini
D) Ensure that SIML, RLV, HTTP, Nucleus and notifications are disabled. This will lighten the client in the event you plan to use it for only basic group invite/eject functions.
5) Run Corrade
A) From Windows, go Start > Run > cmd.exe as ADMINISTRATOR
B) cd into the directory in which you unpacked Corrade
C) At the command line, type Corrade.exe and hit enter.

NOTE: Should you need to run multiple Corrade instances on a single machine, it is critical that you either disable Nuclear for each instance, or change the port on which each instance '"dials out"' from your machine.

Corrade as a Windows Service

Information on how to set up Corrade as a service (so it auto restarts) is located on the Grimore site

Note: It is recommended when you set it up as a service to use "Auto Delayed Start".

Using CasperLet Bots on a Per-Unit Basis

Steps to perform Reference Image
Adding a bot on a per-unit basis requires the bot to already be set up. You should see a list of bots if this has already been done, similar to this reference image. If you have no bots in the list, you need to create your bot(s).
Click for larger image
Edit the individual unit configuration, and scroll down until you get to the "Group Invite Bots" line.
