These instructions assume that the user is a Queen’s student, staff or faculty member and is able to connect to the internet.
Note: On a Windows 7 or Vista PC with User Account Control (UAC) enabled Ida should start after the initial install. On subsequent reboots a Launch Ida button will appear (eventually – it can take a while) and this can be clicked on to start Ida (you will then see the UAC prompt).
You may see a Microsoft security warning. Click Run.
Ida requires Microsoft’s .NET Framework 2 to run. Ida_FullSeup.exe will install .NET 2 if it is not already installed. If so, you must accept the .NET license agreement and will need to respond to other prompts.
If you see a Files In Use window like this, close the application(s) listed in the window and click Retry.
When the Ida install starts, you will see the Welcome window below. Respond to the prompts on each window.
Ida setup starts
When the install is completed Ida will start. When Ida is running there will be an Ida icon (a little i) in the system tray.
