I installed DNSCrypt 0.0.6 (updated 6 August 2012) very easily from the OpenDNS website. So that seems to have put 9 files into the directory called C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenDNS\DNSCrypt and it seems to be working, including the green status icon.
As I tried to educate myself, I learned that smart people are continuing to improve the program, and that newer versions exist at GitHub, but I did not find a Windows installer there.
I did download a newer version of of dnscrypt-proxy.exe and a file called hostip.exe. The instructions I followed told me to unzip those two files into another directory, open a DOS cmd window, and then type "dnscrypt-proxy --install"
but I received this: [ERROR] unable to install service
So I am not sure how to proceed now. Should I simply copy the newer dsnscrypt-proxy.exe file into the OpenDNS\DNSCrypt directory ?? Or is there a simple installer that I have missed at another website?
I know nothing about Linux, or OSX, and I am running Windows 7 Pro 64-bit on a Lenovo laptop that travels a lot, so security is important to me.
Thank you for OpenDNS, and for DNSCrypt, and my apologies for this newbie query if it is in the wrong place.
