When installation is complete you can close the wizard.
When you run Visual Studio you can see the new addin installed. Wait for the invitation of the administrator to know how to start using. If you close the addin you can reopen it from the view menu.

Note: if you have another version installed, including a debug release, uninstall it before installing the new version otherwise it will cause a conflict of names.
