Click the Morningstar Direct Application link above to download.
You will be prompted to download a 100MB application file called morningstardirectsetup.exe. Click Save to save the file to a hard disk where there is at least 500MB of free space. (Alternatively, you can click Open to open the file in the default temporary directory if you have plenty of hard-disk space).
After the file has been downloaded, click Open or go to the location you saved it to and double-click the morningstardirectsetup.exe file.
If you have an older version of Morningstar Direct on your machine, a message will appear during the installation asking whether you want to uninstall the older version. It is recommended that you click Yes to uninstall the older version.
During the process a screen will appear asking you where you want to install Morningstar Direct–i.e., a destination folder. You will need at least 500MB in the destination folder.
After the installation process has completed, you can start Morningstar Direct either from the icon on your desktop or the start menu.
