Installation process is quite straightforward. Vista/7 users should avoid to install Wandering IPs into folders that are under UAC protection (e.g. "Program Files" folder)
Wandering IPs Setup Wizard
Setup Wizard is launched only at first run of the program. Its main job is to download GeoIP database and determine your home location. There is a possibility that your location determined by program will be different from the real one. You should then (but only if you know what you're doing) enter correct geographic coordinates yourself. Wizard accepts standard format of latitude and longitude, e.g. 36°18'12"N, 28°02'45"E etc.
When in doubt visit itouchmap.com and find proper coordinates for your location.
Setup wizard (accessed via start menu icons) is also used to update database and change your home location.
