To install Arboreal (version 5.0 or later) on Microsoft Windows:
Windows XP is recommended. You will need version 1.3.x-1.4.x of the Sun Java runtime for Windows. If the appropriate Java runtime is not available, Arboreal will prompt you to download it.
Download the latest Windows package of Arboreal (arboreal-win.zip) from the Harvard Archimedes site.
Extract the contents of the .zip file. You will need a program such as WinZip.
You should now have a directory (folder) called arboreal. You may install this folder in a place such as Program Files.
To start Arboreal, open the arboreal directory, and double-click on the arboreal program (arboreal.exe).
See the instructions for configuring Arboreal.
