Step 2 – Download the Installer
You can download the installer from the link as shown above or from the email you have been sent. Here we are following the first route, which may vary slightly depending on Browser type.
Using Internet Explorer the download appears like this in the browser, other Browsers may display this differently. You should confirm Run to continue. Once the Download has run your security applications may also ask you to confirm you are happy for the installer to add to your system. You should agree with this.
Step 3 – Installation
Your Community Edition and Planner applications are installed using a conventional Windows installer. As noted in the first screen you will require the correct version of .NET and also admin rights to install to your Program files.
Progressing, you are then required to accept the licence conditions. (these are also available to view here should you wish).
Now you need to choose your install location, unless you have good reason we recommend leaving the default drive set.
Next you can choose what to install or Upgrade. If the installer detects existing Community Edition or Planner it will propose upgrades otherwise fresh installs. You have the choice of installing just Planner, or Community Edition or both.
The install Button then runs the installer this may take a minute or so depending on what you are choosing to install.
On completion the installer will have provided Desktop shortcuts for your new applications as shown here.
