1. Install the software with administrators rights.

2. Configure the software with the Configuration Tool included with administrators rights.

3. Restart the computer and verify that everything run smooth.

(This last step is required on Windows 7 and 2008 to allow the creation of the Custom Event Log Folder properly, it is IMPORTANT, otherwise the application is linked with the Application event log, and manipulation of Logs through the Configuration Tool could have unexpected behaviour. As long as the application log go into it own custom created event log folder, then everything is fine.)
