Become a registered TAD user
To use TAD, it is mandatory that you obtain a membership in our teamTAD community system. This is now being managed by the world famous powerful Discord system.
Using a non-Windows machine?
No worries! TAD Designer Lite has very low system requirements. It can work on many Operating systems that have the WINE sub-system in it. Read more here!
To become a registered user of TAD, do this:
- Fill this registration form using this link
Once you submit that form, you would be emailed further instructions on two simple steps you need to take to start using TAD. Please check your spam folder as sometimes this email gets deposited there.
Don't want to share your own email address? Do this for now
If you do not want to share your email address, and still want to participate in our community (maybe you can start using TAD later?) then directly join our Discord community using this link https://tiny.cc/ttad (Share that invitation link with others too. We'll be grateful! We want everyone, not just users of TAD, who are keen to improve architecture to join us)
Just 2 steps to get started
The 2 steps are quite simple: You need to enroll into the Discord based teamTAD Community. Then you need to download the installer from here https://tad.in.net/tadsetup.zip
When installing, it will check if you have a membership at our TAD Community. It will authenticate you. Read about how this authentication is done. The authentication may seem clumsy at first; but it is important for you. Each TAD file you create has a stamp of the registered user. It protects your data. In case your data goes to another office, they cannot open it without your permission. Hence it is critical that your username is registered. Another important reason is because we want to get a high-qualify focused audience. TAD is anyway NOT a general purpose software.
After you complete the installation, you can start using TAD straightaway.
