TLTC ANGEL System Checker

The System Check detects which components are already installed on your computer to run ANGEL efficiently without error. There are required components and plug-in components that ANGEL will search for on your computer. ANGEL will then display which components you have and which are needed.

A "check" icon will be displayed if your computer has the needed component.

An X icon will be displayed if the system check cannot find the needed component.
