  • Hi Vinay,

    Sorry to hear that the software didn't start. For us to better understand what is going on, can you please give us more details about the problem?

    It seems to me that you use Windows (not a Mac computer), right? Is it Windows 8? If the icon is not on desktop, you can search for it on the folder "Program Files" in your computer, or in the folder "Program Files (x86)". Then double click on the icon that says Gapminder World.

    A pop up window will probably appear asking you to install Flash. If that's the case, please use this link to see how to install Flash:
    After installing flash, try to open Gapminder World again. It should work.

    If flash is installed, when you open it, you will see the countries (bubbles) and you will be able to press the play button and see the bubbles moving over time. You should be able to change the indicators on the axes as well.

    If that is not the problem please let us know again and we'll try to help. These are the most common cases, but if that's not the issue that is happening with you, we can assist with your specific case. Just please tell us step by step what you've done so we can try to help the best way possible :)

    Best regards,
