If the installer cannot run and complains of a missing DLL please download the microsoft redistributable according to your platform:

Microsoft redistributable 32bits / Microsoft redistributable 64bits 

Alternatively if you don’t want to use the installer, you can download a ZIP archive:

zip 32 bits / zip 64 bits

Note that by using the installer you allow Natron to associate .ntp (Natron project) files to the application

Natron.exe, hence double-clicking Natron projects will open them automatically within Natron.
