3. After the browser reports the file has finished downloading to the computer, either choose "Run" from the prompt or locate the downloaded file and double-click on it.

4. Follow the prompts during the installation, and we recommend that you use the default choices.

5. After the installer reports that the setup is complete, you will see a Telemet Finance Lab icon on your desktop. Double-click it to launch Telemet Finance Lab.

6. The first time Telemet Finance Lab is run you will be prompted for your Login ID and Password. Enter them and choose OK.

7. You will also be asked if you want to log on to the server. Choose Yes.


Note for lab installations only: Make sure to check the option for "Student Shared Lab Mode" during the installation. This will allow lab users to import and export their own saved settings but then will return the lab computer to the default settings of Orion when their session is completed. Individual users with their own installations of Orion should NOT check this option.


Telemet Finance Lab will then load and you will be able to work with the default screens and workspaces.
