Installation Instructions

The installers for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2012 are a little different from normal.

  1. Once you have downloaded the .zip file, unzip the file to a temporary folder
  2. Open the PowerShell Administrator and go to the folder you unzipped the file
  3. Run the Install-WMF5.1.ps1 - this will check to see if all the prerequisites are already installed.

For all other Operating Systems, just run the .MSU file as normal
