Please follow the steps below, to install:
1, Run the MSI downloaded, follow the prompts given by the wizard and accept the EULA.
2, Define the path you'd like to install the service to (we recommend leaving this as the default in most cases as data won't be stored in this location).

Note: The wizard will perform a number of checks that confirm connectivity, these will be displayed before the image above. As per the below screenshot:
Note: In the case that either of these checks fails, you'll need to perform the step given under Step 4.

6, Define a set of Administrator Credentials for the Admin Console.
Note: Please store these credentials somewhere secure as they will be used to log in to the Admin Console in the future.
