  • In the second screenshot, just select the 'perform a custom installation' option, then hit next.

    The sequencer will prepare a monitoring environment and wait for your next command (Checkbox 'I am finished..').

    When the sequencer is ready with preparing itself (but before you click on 'I am finished...', the seqeucner (again) monitors system changes.As agallucci wrote you should be able to browse to the application's executabel (where you originally installed it, like C:\Program Files, Q:\PrimaryDirectroy or whatever.

    Often the shortcuts indeed are populated to the desktop/start menu as part of the sequencer's self-preparation process (however sometimes these shortcuts fail).

  • If you do the above, you should be able to open it however you would normally...ie from the shortcut, from the exe directly, etc.
