SickBeard Install Guide


1. Visit Sickbeard’s Google Code Page┬áto download the latest alpha version of SickBeard. The latest version is build 491 and it is only available in zip form.

2. Navigate to your C:\Program Files (x86) and create a folder name “SickBeard”. Unzip the contents of “” to “C:\Program Files (x86)\Sickbeard\”.

NOTE: Please note that I am using a 64 bit version of windows, as a result my Program Files directory will be slightly different from those with a 32 bit version of windows. 64 Bit = Program Files (x86) and 32 Bit = Program Files.

3. Next right click on “Sickbeard.exe” and select “Run As Administrator”. The Windows User Account Control will ask you to confirm your action. A browser should launch with SickBeard. You should also notice the SickBeard folder fill with more files and the program begins to launch for the first time.

SickBeard is now installed! Please visit’s Configuration Guide to help configure SickBeard to work with Sabnzbd.
