Run OpenPype

To run OpenPype click on the icon or find executable file (e.g. C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenPype\openpype_gui.exe) in the application location.

Once the Mongo URL address is entered, press Start, and OpenPype will be initiated. OpenPype will also remember the connection for the next launch, so it is a one-time process.


If the launch was successful, the artist should see a turquoise OpenPype logo in their tray menu. Keep in mind that on Windows this icon might be hidden by default, in which case, the artist can simply drag the icon down to the tray.
