Before you plough on in, PLEASE take 5 minutes to read some of the comprehensive FAQ
(Frequently Asked Questions
) it will save you potentially hours of time, and us too thanks!
[edit December 2013: Now the newer WOFF is released, help and files for the older OFF can now be found in a PDF document Previous OFF help and FAQ pages
To get started simply go to the FAQ PDF read "Installation and settings" section and it will step you through configuring OFF, and also mentions the simple setting for Vista and Windows 7 - all step by step so best to follow that advice initially. Read it carefully and you should be good to go.
There are many other tips and answers there too.
Like many sims and games out there yes you normally need to set OFFManager.exe and CFS3.exe to run as administrator on Windows 7 or Vista - see FAQ link above.
and like many other sims and games you also need to install other components like FULL DirectX9 runtime on Windows 7 / Vista for example (See FAQ link above).
OFF installer actually in many cases needs less components than many as it often will take care of most of its needs under the hood without bothering you but those two things you will need to do.
The rewards are usually great though
so take a few minutes to read through before you rush in and you should be happy as Larry in a sandpit
