If you're on your phone, or a non-Windows computer, re-open this page on your Windows computer.
Tip: Your installation file only stays on our server for a few days. So when you click the link from the email that delivered your installation file, don't just 'Run'. Instead 'Save' your installation file where it gets backed up, and where you can find it when you need it.
Tip: Copy your Activation Key to a text file, and save it in the same folder alongside your installation file... so that you have both — if or when you need to install on another computer.
If this is an upgrade...
You only need to first uninstall if your old version is v14 or lower. (and the installer will tell you)

First deactivate the old computer.
Step 1) Close Excel
Before clicking your installation file, close Microsoft Excel.
Step 2) Double-click
Double-click your S2winInstall exe file,
