Simply unzip dia-bin-YYYY-MM-DD.zip with it's directory structure 
into a directory of your choice. If you don't already
have the GTK+ libraries, get them on the Dia Win32 website.

Additional the dia-extra-libs-YYYY-MM-DD.zip are required. These
are libraries which Dia depends on, but they aren't changed
with every Dia version.

The libraries have to be found by DIA, so put them in the same 
directory as DIA.EXE, please DON'T interchange them with the 
versions provided with The Gimp until you aren't *absolutely*
positive about what you are doing.

--

If you installed Dia as told above and on the website,
most things shoud work mostly without problems. 
If not, please read and understand the following
directory diagram before bothering me with questions
about installation.

<Directory of your choice, but avoid blanks>
+ dia                       (main directory, may be named 
                             as you like as well)
  + bin
      dia.exe
      libdia.dll
      (additional libraries like libxml, libart, ...)
  + dia                     (plug-in directory)
      cgm.dl
      chronogram.dll
      (...)
      (DON'T place *non* plug-in dlls here, or you'll get warnings
       while the plug-ins are initialized)
  + samples                (guess what)
      (...)
  + shapes                 (shape description files for various plug-ins)
    + Circuit
    + (...)
  + sheets                 (control files for various plug-ins)
    + Er
    + (...)
    (...)
