Pix4Dengine Server Installation on Windows

This article shows you how to download, install and configure Pix4Dengine Server on Windows.


  • Connection to the Internet
  • A valid Pix4Dengine Server license. Please contact us to obtain one

Step 1: Download

To download the Pix4Dengine Server installer for Windows (.msi installer), go to https://cloud.pix4d.com/download/.


Documentation and support are not available for the preview version. We recommend testing it before using it for production work.

Step 2: Install

To install Pix4Dengine Server, execute the following command on the Windows Command Prompt:

msiexec /i A:\Example.msi

By default the newly installed Pix4Dengine Server executable is not automatically added to the Windows PATH variable. As a consequence, it would be necessary change the working directory to the  <Pix4Dengine Server installed directory> to use the command line. Alternatively, it is possible to add the Pix4Dengine Server executable to the PATH. To do so:

  • Launch the Windows Command Prompt
  • Type the following command

set PATH=%PATH%;"<Pix4Dengine Server installed directory>"

Step 3: Configure

Before processing a project, it is necessary to login and accept the EULA (after having read it). To do so, type the following command:

pix4dmapper -c --email EMAIL_ADDRESS --password PASSWORD --accept-eula yes

The -c argument is used to prevent the graphical user interface (GUI) from opening.


This and other configuration data are saved in the registry under Current user/Software/Pix4d/Pix4D mapper for Windows.
