    How to use these files

    These files are available in two formats. The section titled "Stand-alone Files" contains links to stand-alone Windows executable files. These are small programs, meant to be downloaded and run, independent of other software. The section titled "Flash Files" contains files in Flash format, intended to be run within your web browser.

    Using the Stand-alone files

    Click on the file name under Stand-alone Files. This will download and open the tutorial. If you are prompted to save the file, without the option to run it, save it to your desktop. (You may wish to change your browser settings to allow executable files to run without first saving them.) After it has been saved, go to your desktop and double-click the file to run it, or open your browser's downloads window and double-click the file name to run it.

    Using the Flash-formatted files

    The Flash files are intended to be viewed in a browser window.

    Click on the file name under Flash Files to start the tutorial.
