Installing Jet Reports

    and go to the location where the file is saved...

  3. Right-click on the file and extract its contents...

    This will result in a folder with the same name as the zip file.  Double-click to move into that folder.
  4. Under the folder 1 - Jet Reports - REQUIRED, run the Jet Setup.exe file.

    Only one version of the Jet Excel add-in can be installed at a time.  This makes upgrading your installation quite easy.  By installing a newer version of the Jet Excel add-in, it replaces the older version.

    When upgrading between different versions, it is recommended to completely uninstall Jet before installing the version.
