(Note: I purposely didn't link to the various downloads. You can get all that info from the videos I recommend in the install instructions below.)
I have nothing but appreciation for the folks who brought us all of the pinball emulation and editing software that makes a project like this a possibility for those of us who are programmer-challenged.
I also express great gratitude to the many dedicated hobbyists who have written lengthy tutorials to explain how to make all of the software work, and those who are always out there in the forums answering questions from newbies like me.

I found myself searching for hours on end for answers to issues I encountered, and found myself following installation tutorials that, about halfway through, assumed that I had more knowledge than I did and, thus, became unintelligible.
So, in the interest of making other people's lives easier, I have posted detailed solutions to every issue I encountered with step-by-step instructions as to how to solve said problems--all in one, easy to access place.
Follow these steps and your installation SHOULD go smoothly:
