  1. Open the Windows command prompt
  2. In the Windows command prompt, use the cd command to change the directory to where the BarTender .exe installer is located.
  3. Run the command <BarTender Installer name>.exe /a. This will bring up a wizard to allow you to extract the .msi and related installation files to a specific directory location.
