To install SIDRA INTERSECTION:
- Run SIDRAINTERSECTION8Setup.exe to install. This setup file contains all the installation files and can set up the software prerequisites if required.
- After the SIDRA INTERSECTION Installation program is loaded, a series of dialog boxes will appear. Follow the instructions. Supply directory information if required. Click the Next button to proceed to the next dialog.
- During installation, the Default Software Setup dialog will appear. Select the desired Software Setup (Defaults System) and click OK. This can be changed later by clicking the Settings tab in the ribbon and using the drop-down list to select the Software Setup you want to use. The available models are:
- Standard Left: Standard defaults for driving on the left-hand side of the road (for general use in Australia, and other countries with left-hand driving rule).
- Standard Right: Standard defaults for driving on the right-hand side of the road (for general use in Europe, Canada, and other countries with right-hand driving rule).

If the Administrator chooses the Disable option, the Check for Updates button will be hidden in the dialog under the File button and the Automatic Update functionality will not apply. Users will not have access to this option and cannot restore it. This can only be restored by a system Administrator via registry changes or during installation of an update (change this setting in the Software Update Options dialog).
