Using NEW with Microsoft Windows Vista
and Internet Explorer 7

You will find only a few changes in using NEW with Microsoft Vista instead of Internet Explorer 7. The following examples will help you with some things that are different.

To download and install NEW, right click the link for your version and select
"Save Target As.."

When your download is complete,
select "Open Folder"

Right click on the downloaded file,and
click "Run as administrator.." (or similar)

When prompted to "Cancel or Allow"
You should choose "Allow" and then click "Run"

When the installer begins, choose "OK"

After running the NEW installer, you may receive several Windows security alerts saying that "Windows Firewall has blocked some features of this program."

In response to these messages, you should choose to "Unblock" the application.

When logging onto a course through the Distance Education Welcome page using Internet Explorer 7, you may receive a message like this-->

Click "Close" in the initial dialog box.

Click on the information bar and choose "Download File..."

Choose to "Open" the file, which will launch NEW and connect to the course or conference.
