Step 3. Unzip the downloaded files and double click setup.exe, to launch the installation wizard. NOTE: If during installation you receive a window stating “Incorrect Environment Settings” please see this FAQ below.
Step 4. Ensure that you set the location for the software installation as the C:\AccuRate\ directory you created in Step 1.
Step 5. The installation wizard will create a new directory on your local drive called C:\AccuRateSustainability\ and all the program files will be saved there. You will notice that the C:\Accurate\ folder you created contains the AccuRateSustainability installer file in case you need to reload the software in the future.
