Version 4 software is packed full of goodies, thus it will take awhile for the download to complete.  Thus, I recommend you make your purchase when you have time to leave your computer downloading.  Do not shut down your computer during the middle of this download.  If you do not have a high speed internet connection, you may wish to order the version that can be shipped tu US/Canadian residents on a CD and install this software from that CD.

Once the download has completed click on the file that was downloaded and follow the instructions to install.

Downloading and Installing  MyMemories Digital Collections
You can shop in the MyMemories store and purchase digital collections, as well as purchase FREE items.  These purchases require you to go thru the same steps, where at the end you'll find a button that is labeled "Access your Downloads".  You click that and it will take you to your personal Account Overview Page Your most recent purchase will be at the top of the list of Digital Scapbooking Kits.

click on the download file link for the format that you need and an exe file will download to your computer.

Double click that exe file to install that collection into your MyMemories program.  The install process is simple with a couple of next, next, finish buttons that you'll need to click. Then you can find that collection in your MyMemories SW.  Depending on what you purchased you can find it by running your MyMemories SW, but to help you locate it pay attention to the "Design Elements" reference on the page where you purchased the item(s) you are downloading.  For the "Christmas Eve Add-on" it shows me that there will be one digital paper and 1 element that will be installed in my software.

To find these files, I can find the digital paper under the background papers - purchased, under the Holidays-Christmas cateogory.  And, the cute deer is available under Embellishments - purchased, under the Holidays-Christmas category.
