Hello Ivan:

Yes, you have installed the software. Since you are a beginner like
me, I strongly suggest using WinPT. It gives you a window interface
to work with. Visit and get yourself the
latest 0.7.96 binary. It will use a Windows installer. I am using it
myself and have not gone in to the commandline to use it for most of
my basic needs yet while I learn to use it.
