So that you are assured of installing the most current version of software possible. The CD that ships with the ColorMunki package contains a link to download the software from the X-Rite website. You will need a high speed internet connection to do this. Note that the following screen grabs indicate ColorMunki Photo. The process for ColorMunki Design is identical. ColorMunki Create will not require a download. The Create installation CD will launch the installer beginning with the sixth screen grab below asking to select a language.

With ColorMunki Photo and Design, click the Install button at the first screen
Check the box in front of "I allow X-Rite to the internet and download the latest version."
Click on the "Save" Button - do not click open
Allow the software to download to your computer - depending on the speed of your computer this may take just a little while
When you see the following message indicating that the download is complete, click the "Open" button
