Can someone write a guide on how to properly install Magic Set Editor from the beginning?

All I've got is go to this page:

Click on the blue "Magic Set Editor 2" to download the installation file.

Install the file in Program Files.

Go to this page:

Scroll down to find "Newest in Magic" and "Magic Update - September 9'th 2015" Click on it.


However I am definetely no expert on the matter.

Install the file in Program Files.

on the same page wrote:
There is a problem with Windows X P Service Pack 3 and any version of Windows thereafter treating the Program Files as read-only. Please install Magic Set Editor somewhere other than Program Files, e.g. your desktop, to avoid potential errors.

Honestly, if you want a tutorial, it can be summed up in three steps:

1) Download Magic Set Editor 2 installer.
2) Install anywhere that isn't Program Files.
3) Grab a recent template by Pichoro that usually comes bundled with all the major updates he's made to the program.

If you're looking to stay updated to the main sets, Thehuw's keyword update is recommended.

Well, you can install it in programfiles too, but then you need admin access to install templates that doesn't have installer. I've got mine in programfiles, it works fine...

For that reason, I would suggest never installing it in program files.
