As explained elsewhere, there are three versions of the Church Slavonic Etutor available for download. Generally speaking the two shareware versions are identical; they differ in how each application runs.    If you have not used the online version I would recommend the Standalone With Runtime.     It is a self-contained application that requires little user input to download, install and run. Please read the download instructions on the respective pages carefully.
