Open the RosterAgent package (.msi) and allow the installer to run through any firewall or virus protection programs on your computer (please note there is no message on installation completion).
Now the RosterAgent will appear in the RosterAthletics folder on your applications list and you are ready to run. A RosterAgent shortcut should also appear on your Desktop.
First uninstall any currently installed version of the RosterAgent by:
- Going to your Applications folder and find the currently installed RosterAgent
- Hover over the RosterAgent, hit control-mouse click, and select "Move to trash"
