    – Pass Welcome Screen: Click the Next button on the “Welcome Screen”.
    – License Agreement: Click the checkbox agreeing to the “End User Agreement” and then click Next.
    – Verify Installation Folder: Verify the installation folder which should be installed in the same folder as the initial Matrix_ks screen saver was installed in. Typically its going to be the default which is “C:\Program Files\KellySoftware\Matrix-ks”
    – OK Warning: A warning will popup warning you that a previous version is installed. Click YES to verify you want to install over top of the previous version
    – Select Program/Group: Again the defaults should work perfect which are “Kelly Software/Matrix-ks” and then click the Next button.
    – Start Installation: Now click the Next button to install the screen saver application.
    – Finish Installation: Now click the Finish button to finalize the Matrix_ks screen saver installation.
