Following section describes the typical dialogues and messages you encounter during the installation of the setup.
1. Welcome screen
This dialog gives you a brief introduction of the software package you are going to install. Click on the Next button to proceed to the next screen.
When running the installation package, you may receive the following error: Error reading setup initialization file.
This error is usually the result of an unsuccessful download. Sometimes an installer package will have appeared to have downloaded successfully, because no error message was given about the download; however, you will not always receive an error message when the entire file was not downloaded successfully. When you run the excutable file, it has enough information available to start running, but it will only get far enough to provide the error message. Since it does not have the complete file content, it will not be able to read the setup initialization file. If you receive this error message, you will need to try downloading the file again.
2. License agreement
