Regression download and installation guidance

Download and Installation Guidance for Introduction to Regression 1.1 Module

If possible, print these directions out for easier reference. Follow these steps to download, install, and run the Introduction to Regression module.

  1. If you are a MBA student from the class of 2004 with a "supported" laptop, then follow the directions provided via email prior to beginning the download.

  2. The download is a 19 megabyte file. Due to the size of the download, we suggest you download with a campus network connection or cable modem connection. Do not attempt with phone line modem connection. Point your Web browser to:

  3. Click the Regression lesson link (which points to the file Regression_Setup.exe).

  4. Depending on your browser and its configuration, Regression_Setup.exe will either begin to download automatically, or you will be prompted to save or open the file. If the file downloads automatically, note where your computer is putting the file or perform a file search on Regression_Setup.exe after the download is complete. If you are given the choice of saving or opening, choose to save and remember where you are placing the file. The 19 megabyte file should download across a 100 Mbps connection to your local drive in two minutes or less.

  5. After the download, close all open windows and programs. Navigate to the location where Regression_Setup.exe was saved. Double click the file to begin installation. Internet Explorer users: The file may launch automatically after download for you. Important Note: Before installation finishes, you may be prompted to restart your computer. Please do so. Please be patient after the restart. Installation will resume automatically within a minute or so after restart. You should not need to start the installer a second time.

  6. Follow the prompts during installation. All you really have to choose is where you will save the program files. The default location is your Program Files folder, but you can place it where you like.

  7. Important Note: Once program installation has finished, you need to run a second installer to install the necessary video support for the program. This should take less than 5 seconds. Double click the "TSCC.exe" file found in the folder created in step 6. The default location is C:Program FilesIntro to Regression. You will not need to restart your computer.

  8. You will find a shortcut icon on your desktop called "Intro to Regression." A shortcut is also placed in your Windows Start> Programs menu. You can use either shortcut to start the module.

If you have any problems installing or running the module, call 814-865-0366 and ask for Bill Rose or Amy Garbrick.

Good luck and good learning!
