NB: Please note that the supplied installer will not work with SharePoint Foundation / SharePoint Server 2010 environments as this was made for WSS 3.0 / MOSS. To install on SharePoint 2010 environments, please download the WSP file and run the command "stsadm -o addsolution -filename <path to WSP + filename>". The solution will then appear in Central Administration where the solution can be deployed.

Once deployed, go to your site collection and activate the Site Collection Feature.
