Welcome to the download Section!


Overview:
Many new users have problems downloading files and don't know what to do with them once they are on their computer.
Downloading files is a simple process. They are single "compressed" files containing all the individual files required to run a program. It's important that you download the type of file you are best suited to handle. You may want to print this page for reference. You may also contact us with questions about any software or applications that are presented in this section.


System Requirements:
We recommend that you always check the system requirements to make sure your computer is compatible and has the required space to install and run the download.




Download Instructions:
For most downloads the instructions are extremely simple; all you need to do is choose whether to install the software immediately or save it to disk for installation later. But the process is more complex for other downloads. If you have any questions or are concerned about your system requirements, or if you don't know anything about the application that we offer for download, please contact us via email with your questions before clicking the download button so you're prepared for any steps you may need to follow.

ZIP (.zip) format downloads should be downloaded to your local hard drive by choosing "Save target as", then select a location where you want to save the file. After saving, right-click on the file and choose "unzip". The ZIP file requires that you use a program locally on your computer to be able to extract all the program files from the ZIP file before they can be used.

Executable (.exe) files should be downloaded to your local hard drive by choosing "Save", then run the .EXE file from your hard drive. The EXE file Extracts all the files from itself simply by running the EXE file on your computer.

Vocabulary:
What is an .EXE file?
".EXE" files are self-extracting archives; that is, you do not need additional software to extract their contents. Each EXE file (usually) contains multiple files which are placed in a single new subdirectory.
