    Note

    The “Offline” version of the installer includes all the necessary dependencies and should therefore be used only when you need to install OpenMETA in an environment that does not have access to the Internet.

  2. After the download is complete, run the installer META_<version>.exe where <version> corresponds to the version you downloaded.

  3. Check I agree to the license terms and conditions and then click Install when the license dialog appears.

When you are upgrading, you should not need to uninstall the OpenMETA tools – the installer will automatically remove any unneeded components.
