This link will launch the download of a small application file (.exe). When the dialogue box appears, simply click SAVE and choose a location on your computer that you’ll remember – we recommend straight to your desktop so it’s easy to find and use. Once it’s completely downloaded, just double click the icon to run the wizard.
*Note to MAC users: the Wizard does not work on MACs so we created a PDF version. You can find it in PDF format by clicking here.
