6.  Review the license agreement and if you agree with it, click the “Accept” button.



7.  Click the “Managed Download” or “Direct Download” depending on your preference, I personally use the “Direct Download” button.



8.  There are two files, you will need to download both of them.




9.  Once the downloads are complete, open up the folder you downloaded the files to and double click the EXE file.


10.  The prompts are fairly self explanatory through the installation and the default selections should work for almost all users.
