If you're using the Chrome browser, you will be presented with the manual installation instructions directly as there is currently an incompatibility with the Adobe AIR automatic installation process - see below.


2. Manual Installation

To install Market Samurai manually, you'll first need to download the installer files for both Market Samurai and Adobe AIR to your desktop.

    1. Click here to download the latest version of Adobe AIR.
    2. Click on the "latest version of Market Samurai" link on your unique download page to download the latest version of Market Samurai

Once you've downloaded them to your desktop, double click the installer for Adobe AIR to install it.

Once Adobe AIR is installed, you can double click on the Market Samurai installer file to install Market Samurai. 

If you already have Adobe AIR installed on your computer, you can skip downloading the AIR install file, and just download Market Samurai.


3. Installation Process

Step 1 - Whether you have downloaded Market Samurai to your computer and double clicked the file, or clicked the "Install Now" option from the automatic install, this is the first screen you will see during the install process
