This program requires Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 (SP2) and Visual C++ 2008 runtime to run. If you are running Windows Vista or 7, and using Windows Update, these prerequisites are probably already installed. Windows 8 and 8.1 do not have Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 enabled by default. If the .NET 2.0 requirement is not automatically detected by Windows 8+ (or already enabled), you may need to enable Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 (which includes 2.0) using the Windows Control Panel (instructions).
Downloads for XP or Vista:
- CUETools_2.1.4.rar - Previous stable release
- CUETools_2.1.5.zip - Current stable release (see changelog)
- CUETools_2.1.6.zip - Latest experimental/dev build (for testing; may be unstable)
Just unpack the archive to any folder; no setup required.
CUERipper.exe are the main applications to run.
If you want to run it as a portable application from a USB stick, remove the file called
user_profiles_enabled so that settings will be saved to the same folder instead of your user profile folder. (If you already have non-portable settings you want to use, copy the subfolders named
CUE Tools or
CUERipper from the
%appdata% folder to your portable install.)
The .rar and .zip archives can be unpacked with a free extractor, such as 7-Zip, IZArc, or the command-line tool UnRAR. Or, you can use commercial software, like WinRAR or WinZip. (The commercial software usually has a free trial version that eventually becomes "nagware" but keeps functioning.)
