Microsoft Windows XP users might encounter several problems while installing the software. Please ignore the errors. If it does not install successfully, then you can download the .exe files and .dll files at the alternate link and you can run the NuClass.exe file directly. These problems may be experienced if you do not have the administrative rights on the machine, in which case, you can use the alternate link to download the software.
