                          Getting SeaMonkey

==========================================================================

You can download nightly builds of SeaMonkey from the mozilla.org FTP site
at

  http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/seamonkey/nightly/

For the very latest builds, see

  http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/seamonkey/nightly/latest-trunk/

Keep in mind that nightly builds, which are used by mozilla.org developers
for testing, may be buggy. If you are looking for a more polished version
of SeaMonkey, the SeaMonkey project releases builds of SeaMonkey regularly
that you can download from

  http://www.seamonkey-project.org/releases/

Be sure to read the SeaMonkey release notes for information on known
problems and installation issues with SeaMonkey.  The release notes can be
found at the preceding URL along with the releases themselves.

It is strongly recommended that you exit all programs before running the
setup program. Also, you should temporarily disable virus-detection
software.

Install into a clean (new) directory. Installing on top of previously
released builds may cause problems.

Windows Installation Instructions
---------------------------------

Note: For Windows 2000/XP systems, you need Administrator privileges to
install SeaMonkey. If you see an "Error 5" message during installation,
make sure you're running the installation with Administrator privileges.


   To install SeaMonkey by downloading the SeaMonkey installer,
   follow these steps:

   1. Click the link to seamonkey-x.xx.en-US.win32.installer.exe (or
      similar file name) on the site you're downloading SeaMonkey from to
      download the installer file to your machine.

   2. Navigate to where you downloaded the file and double-click the
      installer file icon on your machine to begin the Setup program.

   3. Follow the on-screen instructions in the setup program. The program
      starts automatically the first time.


   To install SeaMonkey by downloading the .zip file and installing
   manually, follow these steps:

   1. Click the link to seamonkey-x.xx.en-US.win32.zip (or similar file
      name) on the site you're downloading SeaMonkey from to download the
      .zip file to your machine.

   2. Navigate to where you downloaded the file and double-click the
      compressed file.

      Note: This step assumes you already have a recent version of WinZip
      (or a similar zip tool) installed, and that you know how to use it.
      If not, you can get WinZip and information about the program at
      www.winzip.com.

   3. Extract the .zip file to a directory such as
        C:\Program Files\mozilla.org\SeaMonkey.

      SeaMonkey to and double-click the seamonkey.exe icon.
