Next, you need to run the Universalis installer so that it can install the Universalis program for you.

How you do this depends on your browser. There are differences between how browsers handle these things, not only from browser to browser but between versions of browsers. Here are a couple of examples:

Example: Internet Explorer 8 on Windows XP

Other versions will look a bit different but will behave in a similar way.

After you click on the Download button Internet Explorer will ask you if you want to run or save the file UnivWin.exe:

We recommend that you choose "Run", because it's simplest. Once you have chosen "Run", the file will be downloaded, and Internet Explorer will ask you again whether you want to run it:

Choose "Run", and the Universalis installation will begin.
