Hi Alistair,

the easiest thing is to copy the squeak.exe and the SqueakFFIPrims.dll
files in the same folder as Damien's image. Then drag and drop
the .image file over squeak.exe. This should be enough to run the image
(I'm on Linux, so I can't check).

Once the image is running, it will show you the Squeak desktop window.
There's also an option for running the image "headless", so don't worry
about it if you're planning to run that image on a server.

Damien's image will show up with two Morphic windows already open: the
Script Manager and the Preferences Browser. Close them by left-clicking
on the 'X' button or minimize them by left-clicking on the 'O' button.

Once you've cleared the desktop, left-click anywhere on it to bring up
the main menu. From there, select "Open..."->"Universe Browser". Once
the universe browser window is open, select "Web Development" and the
select the Seaside version you want to install (for example, Seaside
2.7.227). Click on the "Select package" button to select it for
installation, the click on the "Install selections button" at the bottom
of the window.

Once the system has finished loading, you will have a working Seaside
