• Installation instructions for the Quick Tour

Click the link above and save the .zip file to your Desktop. Double-click the file to open it. Windows users must copy the Quick Tour folder from the zip file to their Desktop or some other location and then open that new folder. This happens automatically on the Mac. Double-click the page1.html file to open the Quick Tour in your browser.

• Instructions for installing on a portable drive

Macintosh users can click the Download Mac Installer link above and then copy the program folder from the installer window onto any portable drive. Windows users should download the .zip file (from the link in the last paragraph of the next section) to their Desktop, open the .zip file on their computer, and then copy the program folder from the zip file window onto their portable drive.

• Installation instructions for Windows systems

1) Right click on a link above and choose "Save as..." from the popup menu, then choose where you want the .msi file and make a note of its location. After installation you can give this file to a friend.

2) Double-click (or run) the AET.msi file and follow the directions to install the software on your computer. (Vista does not like the program in the Program Files folder.)

3) Open the program by clicking the shortcut for the Activity & Expense Tracker.exe on your desktop. A new program group is added to your Start menu with shortcuts to tips, registration information and an uninstaller.

Warning: you can't install two copies of either the same program, or more than one program on one computer using the Installer (.msi) files. If you want to install additional programs, download this AET.zip file, or this AETWG.zip file for the Workgroup version, or this AETP.zip file for the Plus version. If you download the .zip file you will need to install the software in your Documents folder and create a shortcut to the application. YOU MUST delete the .zip file before using the software.

• Installation instructions for Macintosh OSX systems

Just click on the Download Installer link for OSX above and the file will be downloaded to your computer. The .dmg file should automatically mount as a new drive in a new Finder window. If not, just double-click it. Next copy the Activity & Expense Tracker folder from the virtual drive to your Applications folder. Then eject the virtual drive and delete the .dmg file.

Mac users need to copy the software from the installer to their Applications folder and run the software from there.

Next open your Applications folder, open the new Activity & Expense Tracker folder, then double-click on the application. You may also want to drag the new program to your Dock, so you can easily locate Activity & Expense Tracker in the future.

Here's the workaround for opening Activity & Expense Tracker in Mountain Lion and Mavericks.

Gatekeeper gives you three security options. Just like today, you can download and install apps from anywhere on the web. Or you can choose the safest option and download and install apps only from the Mac App Store. Or use the default option, which allows you to download apps from the Mac App Store as well as those signed with a Developer ID. If an app is unsigned, Gatekeeper blocks the app from being installed and warns you that it did not come from an identified developer. If you’re sure the app is safe, which all SpiritWorks Software is, you can manually override Gatekeeper by Control-clicking the app and choosing to open it.
