  1. Once you click the Install button the program will install onto your computer and after install has completed the Backup Program will auto launch so you can proceed with establishing backup jobs.  

Note: When running the Office Practicum Backup Service, be certain to right-click and select Run as Administrator.  This will ensure that you see the Manage Backup Service tab.  Otherwise, the Manage Backup Service tab will not appear when running the Office Practicum Backup Service.
