  1. When you get to the end of the checkout process for your selected piece of software, you should see a button labeled "Download Software."

Double click on the icon for the installation archive to open it up.  At this point, you can continue the installation process using the specific instructions for the software you are installing.

Once you're sure that the software has been downloaded and installed correctly, you can delete the secure download client.  If the download of your software is interrupted for some reason, go back to step three and the Secure Download Client should resume the download where it left off when the interruption occurred.
