Welcome to the Ares download page. From here, you’ll be able to find the download link as well as the steps you’re going to need to take if you want to install this piece of software onto your computer. If you follow everything we say correctly, you should have everything up and running within just minutes. Don’t worry, you don’t have to do anything advanced to get it all working. Let’s get started with what you need to do.
Step 1: When you’re ready to install the tool on your computer, you’re going to need an installation file which will contain all of the data relating to the software. Luckily, we’re able to provide you with an instant download of this right now. Once you’ve clicked the button below, you’ll find that you’re asked to save the install file to a location on your hard drive. It doesn’t matter where as long as you can access it again afterwards.
Step 2: It should only take a few seconds for the file to completely download to your hard disk. You should see a clear notification when this happens and when it does, you simply need to execute it. This tool is a really simple application to install so you should be able to follow the process on from here but for those of you who aren’t sure, we’ll carry on explaining until you have the Ares download fully ready to use.
Step 3: When you’ve opened up the install file, you should see a very straightforward installation process beginning. You may be asked a few questions about where you want your data stored to but usually the default options are good enough so you can just go ahead and continue to click next until the software needs time to put everything into place. You just need to wait for a few minutes while the software does its job, you’ll be nearly done after that!
Step 4: After a few minutes, you should see that it is now done. We highly recommend that you reboot your computer after you’ve finished this to make sure that everything is done correctly. The install wizard may actually advise you to do this. Rebooting your computer should only take a minute or two and it does mean that you’ll be able to go ahead and use it straight away so it is worth doing. When you’ve done this, go onto the next step!
Step 5: This step is very simple – you just need to open up our Ares free download from your list of programs in the Windows operating system and then start downloading files! There is a search bar easily available which will allow you to do so and it includes support for the torrent protocol so if you use them a lot, you should be able to use your favourite torrent sites to find files you want too.
- Default Client – If you plan on using the BitTorrent protocol, one thing you’re definitely going to need to do is make this the default client for .torrent files. There is an option in the Control Panel to do this if you want to, otherwise you can go into the Windows settings which will provide you with an option to select the application you’d like the operating system to automatically open when it sees one of these files.
- Download Folder – If you have an external hard drive or other location where you like to save your downloads to (maybe even just a specific directory on your computer) then it’s important to make the software of where you want it to save files to. This can be done by going into Control Panel –> Transfer and then changing the “Download folder” to the location where you’d like files to be saved to. After a simple reboot of the tool you should find that files are now saved there instead.
- Proxy – If you want to place file transfers through a proxy then you’re also going to need to set this up before you get started. You could be using this for a number of reasons such as to hide your personal IP address but we won’t get into this too much at the moment. If you once again go into Control Panel and then into Proxy you’ll be asked to enter a number of different settings such as the IP address, port number as well as the login details required to connect. It’ll be used from then on.
Now that you’ve read through this guide, you should be able to get started and use this great P2P client straight away. If you haven’t decided to install it yet, why not go for it? You have nothing to lose by doing so, our official download & installation website provides you with everything you need to go ahead and get started completely free of charge with no questions asked. Please do bare in mind that we do not support the illegal downloading of files and it is your responsibility, though.
