    You will be prompted to enter the real-time system's administrator name and password if it has one. For more information, refer to the Logging into your System topic in the Measurement & Automation Explorer Help.

  5. Optional: Select Custom software installation (currently installed) and click Next to install recommended software if prompted.
  6. Click the icon next to VeriStand RT Engine.
