You browser may ask you if you want to Run or Save the file. Choose Run.

The plotter software was produced by CHERSOFT and is digitally signed by CHERSOFT rather than the RYA - your internet browser may give you this information before the download.

From Windows Vista the you may have to allow the installer to make changes to the computer (i.e. install the application). Choose Yes.

The Installer will start and after a short while display the first page of the installer. Click Next.

You are then faced with the EULA (End User Licence Agreement). You have to accept this to install and use the software by clicking the "I accept the terms..." and then Next.

Then just click Install to install the software.

How long it takes depends on your internet connection speed and your computer. Once it is done the last page gives you the option of "Launch RYA Training Chart Plotter". You can take this option as you will now need to Activate the training plotter application.
