Perform the following steps to install on the Windows operating system (OS). The appearance of your screens may vary slightly from those shown here depending on your Phoenix EXP version and your OS.

Installation is quick and easy and done through an InstallShield Wizard. Each wizard dialog box includes Back, Next, and Cancel buttons. The Back button navigates you back to the previous dialog box (except on the Welcome window), and the Next button accepts current values and advances you to the next window in the wizard. The Cancel button closes the wizard without saving values. The Finish button appears on the last wizard window to complete the process.
