In order to install Microsoft Project 2013, you must first download the application. See this article: How to Download Microsoft Project 2013.

With the program downloaded and saved to your local machine we can now begin the install process.

Step 1: Launch your favorite “unzippping” program (WinZip, WinRAR, 7-ZIP, etc). This article will use WinRAR. Click on Wizard.
