Installation requires completing only three simple steps:
- Installing Skype
- Setting up a Skype account
- Installing the IP-700m software

After choosing the language for the installation program and the software it loads, an installation Wizard appears to lead you through the process step by step. Instructing the program to install Skype makes the installer seek a newer version of the Skype software from the company website. This prevents potential dangers from occurring when older versions of software are used by mistake.
