Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 (Note: you don´t need to install this if you have Windows Vista) click here for x64 versions of Windows
Version 1.7 and newer : Windows Media Player 9 or later (Included with Windows XP / Vista)

This program is written in C# and needs Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 to run. The framework in itself doesn’t “steal” any system resources and can safely be installed. The installation program should automatically install the framework but if you experience problems you can download it HERE (32-bit) or HERE (64-bit), or get it by using windows update. You don´t need this if you are running Windows Vista.
