Hi

1. Is there an installer available for this software?
Yes.  The Download Manager downloads both an installer application, Lumion application files and other content files.
Once the download is complete, the Download Manager will verify the files then run the Installer.

At any future time, you can re-run the installer.  This is useful if you want to install Lumion on more than one PC, so it saves downloading for each PC.


2. Why does it take so long to download..
Download speed is mainly dependent on local conditions, and the type of internet connection you have.
I note your screencapture shows it is only going at 288 k/Bs which is definitely slow.

Users generally can download at 2.5MB/s up to 25MB/s.

There are high speed servers in both the USA and Europe, so the download speed should be much better than what you were getting.  Please try again.  The Download Manager allows for both Pausing and Stopping/Restarting of the download.

The download may work faster if you download to a local PC first.  Then once complete, you can copy to a network storage location.


3. What is the best method to install the software?
Lumion must be installed using the Installer than runs once the download is complete, or manually.

There is a 'silent' option if needed:  Refer our Knowledge Base Article: How do you install Lumion silently?
