As this program is only available as a download from the Magic DVD website there is no packaging associated with it and it consists of a zipped executable installation file.
First we unzip and run the executable file. The installation routine commences with the following dialogue box.
After accepting a standard Licence Agreement, you are then offered the opportunity to select where you'd like the program to be installed and the default location is shown in the screenshot below.
You are then asked to specify the name and location of the Start Menu folder.
Then select whether or not you want to create a desktop icon using a simple check box.
And finally the actual installation proceeds.
After a very short period the installation is complete and you are then asked to choose whether to launch the program immediately or simply exit the completed installation routine.
Overall the installation is trouble free, efficient and effective. It automatically selects sensible defaults, gives choices where required and performs what it's supposed to do perfectly, so I really can't criticise this at all.
So following this promising start let's go to the next page and examine the main program....
