- If you received EEMS8.3 in a zip file (EEMS8.3.ZIP), unzip the zip file into a temporary directory on your hard drive. To simplify the cleanup of files later it is recommended that the temporary directory be empty before unzipping.
- You should use the the EEMS8.3 Installation program to install EEMS8.3 (EEMS8.3_SetupRel170927.exe). After opening the setup program the EEMS Install Wizard will run as shown in Installing EEMS#Figure 1 below.

3. If you used a temporary directory you should delete the files that were unzipped. Keep a copy of the zip file in case you need to install the program again.
4. As part of the conditions of use of EEMS, the user must accept the End-User Agreement before installation.

7. After the destination folder has been selected, the user should click the Next button where they will be prompted to select a setup option. A choice of “Complete” or “Custom” setup options are available. “Complete” means that all setup features will be installed, requiring more disc space. The “Custom” setup option allows the user to install just one or a combination of files, including EEMS program file, data files, documents and extra files.

8. If the “Custom” option is used a number of features may be selected to be installed. Here the user may also decide on the destination folder for the setup by selecting the Change button. The default folder is: C:\Program Files (x86)\DSI\EEMS8.3\. An example test case will also be saved to C:\EEMS.
