The install .pkg file will be downloaded, when it is finished open the package to start the installation process.

Step 7

On the introduction page click "Continue".

Step 8

Go through the software license agreement and accept it. Then click "Continue".

Step 9

Leave the settings on the default and click "Install".

Step 10

Enter your local username and password that you setup on the Mac (not your HCC Login ID and password) and click "Install Software".

The software should now be installing. Wait until it is finished before moving to the next step.
