if you want to install version 0.14f, you can put it into the teTeX

If you want to install a newer beta version,  just unpack it and run

the pool file to the proper directories.

BTW., Thanh, some suggestions (patch for version 0.14h):

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
