Where's the installer? I see a bunch of coed. How is it deployed/used/installed?

Welcome to Seven forums BoureyS85.

I don't see the "here" anywhere. I only see "source here" and it goes to this code page. https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B3H6...=sharing&pli=1

BUMP! I registered just to ask this as well. I was able to download a .txt file, but no app, there is no instructions, nothing to install, NOTHING! How do I run this???

</br> I tried using the goofwear.com once, but gifs ran slowly. So I downloaded Irfanview to view gifs, but felt it was too bloated. So I tried re-downloading goofwear version, but now it won't work at all. Used the exact same procedure, renamed compatibility to Vista, Photo & Fax Viewer just shows still images. Do I have to uninstall it before reinstalling it again? How do I uninstall it?

You should read the post #9 then, maybe, post #97 (I think you you can select any Win version, I personally selected Win7)
I read the whole thread and I did it!
(For instance in the third post you can find the installer)

Just a simple link to this phantom installer would be nice.
