After you see the confirmation screen, click the Next button and the installer
will copy files and write registry entries. When the process is finished, create a
shortcut to put on your desktop through Explorer, the Start menu, etc.
Note that the .Net framework is required for FreeScan. If you are using XP or 2000, and you don't have this installed, the installer will attempt to download it from the Microsoft website, or you can download it via the link on the download page on the FreeScan website.

Vista Installation Notes
- If you get messages that .ocx files are missing when you try to execute after installation, download the bat file that is linked in the downloads section (where you got the software) and execute.
- If you are using Vista x64, it extracts to c:\program files; but it has to go to c:\program files(x86)
