 +TO DO: Add warning and guidance about issues with 5.4.0 and 5.4.1+
 +Briefly, if you have a previous installation on a Windows machine, select '​Install for all users',​ and NOT '​Install only for me'. Otherwise you'll need to manually hack the registry to unpick the carnage.

 To start with you need to download and install the [[http://​therion.speleo.sk/​download.php|package intended for Windows]], not the Mac, Linux or other packages. ​ Therion does not appear to entirely follow Windows operating system norms, so there are a number of things that work a bit differently.  ​ To start with you need to download and install the [[http://​therion.speleo.sk/​download.php|package intended for Windows]], not the Mac, Linux or other packages. ​ Therion does not appear to entirely follow Windows operating system norms, so there are a number of things that work a bit differently.  ​

 The above will get you going using Therion and the XTherion Interactive Editor. ​ For a number of functions XTherion IS the best way of creating and editing Therion data files. (drawing, interactive data entry, viewing and entering file names and paths for surveys and maps, locating errors) Most of the time however, I have found that other generic text editors make creating and editing the various data files MUCH easier. ​ I expect this is the case regardless of the operating system you use. The above will get you going using Therion and the XTherion Interactive Editor. ​ For a number of functions XTherion IS the best way of creating and editing Therion data files.

 +As of somewhere around mid 2018, it seems that the default Notepad application that ships with Windows 10 does not display linefeeds correctly in the *.ini files that come with the Therion installation. ​ The whole file displays as though it were on a single line.  However using almost any other editor seems to display the files correctly.
