Installing and Activating PERRLA

After you download the PERRLA program, you will install the software on your computer and activate it for use. You will then be ready to start writing your paper. In most case, installation and activation only takes a couple of minutes.








Windows Installation

After you download the PERRLA software, you must install it onto your computer. Starting the PERRLA.MSI file (the file you downloaded from our website) launches our installation "wizard." Our simple wizard interface makes it easy to install. You basically just keep clicking the "Next" button to work through the steps of the wizard. When you're done, you'll have a PERRLA pencil icon on your computer's desktop. Whenever you want to use PERRLA to write a properly formatted paper, you'll click on this yellow PERRLA pencil. PERRLA will then load into memory and will launch Microsoft Word automatically for you when you create a new paper or open an existing one.
