Change the destination directory, if desired, or allow installation into the default C:\HWA directory.
Once installed, simply double-click on the RTW.EXE file in the HWA directory to run the Searchable Archive. You can create a shortcut on your desktop which points to the RTW.EXE file for quick start-up.
