In Internet Explorer choose "run" to automatically install the client.
3) If you are using a different browser then you will have to go to your download location and run the installer from there. It will be called FCxxxx.msi or FCxxxx.dmg (x's denote version numbers).
4) Finish the installation by following the prompts in the Installation Wizard.
5) Once it has finished installing, there should now be an icon on your computer desktop called "FistClass". Normally you would double click on it to launch the application but on first installation this is not neccessary as the application automatically launches.
