Please write down the download filename so you can easily find it for the installation.

Click on the desired language to download the installation file. Select "Save to disk" and direct the download to a convenient folder such as your desktop. Double click the downloaded file to start installation. It is recommended you accept the default destination directories. Once installed, return to Phoenix Character Nexus to download color characters and backgrounds.
