Easy 5-Step Installation

1. Log on to Windows as Administrator. Make sure the Administrator account is password-protected. If the Administrator account has no password, create a password for the Administrator (Control Panel→User Accounts→Create a Password). 

2. Copy the Sherig 3.0 folder from an external hard disk to C:\ (or D:\). This will create a C:\Sherig 3.0 (or D:\Sherig 3.0) directory with all the software. 

3. Navigate to the C:\Sherig 3.0 (or D:\Sherig 3.0) directory. Double-click INSTALL or INSTALL.cmd. This will start the install process. Follow the instructions. Note: Installation can take up to 60 minutes. 

If you haven’t already, create a non-admin user account with standard/limited permissions. 

5. Log on to each user account. Start Wikipedia. Go to File→Open then navigate to C:\Sherig 3.0\Wikipedia (or D:\Sherig 3.0\Wikipedia) and choose the first Wikipedia database (for example, Wikipedia-for-Schools-2013). Repeat for the two other databases.
