  Installing the PSI Instant Messenger:

PSI doesn't install the way most programs install on your computer.  It doesn't create a folder in your Program Files folder, nor does it configure anything in the registry.  PSI simply places all necessary files in a particular folder.  You can either launch PSI from that folder or create a shortcut to the PSI executable.

I cut and pasted the whole 'PSI' folder in the 'Program Files' directory on the 'C' drive where all my other programs are located.  I then created a shortcut to the PSI executable.  This tutorial shows one way to create that shortcut.

Right click on your Desktop.  Select New and then Shortcut from the menus.


A folder similar to the Create Shortcut folder below should appear.

Click the Browse button.


Locate and click My Computer and then Local Disk (C:).


Locate and click Program Files to expand its menu.


Locate and double click the folder that contains Psi.exe.


Locate and highlight Psi.exe.

Click OK when finished.


We return to the following window:

Click Next to continue.


Type a name for this shortcut  =  enter a name for the shortcut.  I gave it the name 'PSI'.


The shortcut to PSI will appear on the Desktop.

Double click the shortcut to launch PSI.
