How-To: Install SecureCRT 8.5.x on Debian 10
There aren't any Debian versions on which SecureCRT is supported, because Debian isn't a targeted platform for SecureCRT development. See System Requirements (supported OSes) for clients on our website here.

If you would like support for Debian (or any other currently unsupported OS), let us know using this form from the support page of our website and if it becomes available, we will post here.

    dpkg -i libssl1.0.0_1.0.1t-1+deb8u7_i386.deb (for 32-bit versions)

    Selecting previously unselected package libssl1.0.0:amd64.

  3. Now install SecureCRT. If you're installing SecureCRT 8.5.x, it may also need to install libpng12.0. As with the libssl1.0.0 library, you should be able to download libpng12.0 from the "jessie" distro:
