To install and make this work on Windows 7 the user has to be an administrator. Once the software is installed then the user can be demoted back down to a non-admin account and the software works with no problems.

On Windows 7 you'll want to update IE to version 11 so you can view charts etc inside SOFA without having to open reports. You need to do this even if you use Firefox, Chromium etc as your web browser

If you get a message like "not compatible with your OS. Instead we recommend trying ..." when trying to install on your local machine, change your Gatekeeper settings to "Allow applications downloaded from: Anywhere". See Gatekeeper settings.

The tar.gz file contains a README.txt and an installation script to run. Installation has worked on Fedora and openSUSE so far. You may also be able to find Mandriva versions at Mandriva International Backports (but check the version is up-to-date). See Non-Ubuntu/Debian Linux Installation
