Hi and Welcome to the Community!

Sorry to be dense, but what happens when you do exactly as the message instructs?

Thanks!

Not sure if you are being "funny", but I think the best answer to your question is that the download doesn't offer setup.exe OR software.msi as files, the file that is downloaded and saved is 610_b038_multilanguage.exe.  When the download is complete and I run the file, at the end I get the message above.   Not sure where or how to find setup.exe.
