The shareware version of AscToHTM is made available over the web from AscToHTM home page. Once you register you can download the full version (no nags, no limits), and are entitled to free upgrades for an arbitrary (equals "my decision is final") period of time. So far I've never requested payment for any [a2h updates] of AscToHTM over the last 4-5 years.
Installation will vary according to the type of install kit you've downloaded, but in each case you first download the .ZIP file appropriate to your system and unzip.

Installing the console version
The current version of the software makes updates to your Registry. See the Install notes that come with the software for a description of the registry settings used.
The standard installations use InnoSetup to offer install and uninstall options. To use this version, unzip the file and then run the Setup program. This will move the files to a directory, and create all icons etc.
Once installed, InnoSetup will also offer an uninstall option. You can access this via Control Panel | Add/remove software.
The console version simply comes in a .zip file. The documentation is not included as this is the same as the Windows version.
Simply unzip the console version to the folder of your choice.
The core AscToHTM software is actually developed under OpenVMS (the developer's OS of choice), and so AscToHTM is available under VMS as freeware, although it tends to lag behind the latest Windows version.

Unzip the files.
If you've taken an executable version, that's it.
If you've taken an object library version, execute the build command file.
You might want to define a foreign command to get better use out of the program.
Have a cup of coffee and relax :)
