4. Select required options and click next



5. Select the start menu folder and click Install



6. After the installation progress completes, click Finish to complete Installation



7.  When you run IDE for the first time it will show the dialogue box as shown below. If you don’t have any setting files to import, select “Do not import setting” and continue. Else if you have one, you can configure it by selecting “Config or Installation directory”.
