Annotate, like many programs, requires some free Microsoft components to work. You may already have them installed, but it's best to be sure.This component makes it possible for Annotate for Word to create and manage a database of comments.
There are two different versions of SQL Server: 32 bit and 64 bit. Download the appropriate version for your computer, then double-click the download to install.
Most users of Windows XP need the 32 bit
version. Some Windows Vista users will have 64 bit operating systems,
and should download the 64 bit version. Many Windows 7 users will
require the 64 bit version and should download and install the 32 bit version also (this is typical Microsoft weirdness...no explanation given).

The second Microsoft component Windows XP and Vista users need is .NET (it is included in Windows 7). The link below is to the latest and greatest version from Microsoft. You must have .NET installed on your computer in order to install Annotate.
Depending on your Internet connection speed, this download might take a few minutes. You may also need Administrator rights on your PC.
