  1. Log in to your account with your username and password.

  2. from the Start menu follow the path Programs|Teaching|Language. This will reveal a folder labelled SWI-Prolog. Open this folder and you will find the icon for the application. Double-clicking this will launch the program.

You should be rewarded by the appearance of a new window containing some welcome messages and the Prolog prompt |?- , which indicates that Prolog is ready for input.

You may find it convenient to create a shortcut to the Prolog application on your desktop.
