Generally people install it though their distro if using Linux or BSD.
Through msys2 or cygwin for people using Windows. Through Homebrew or
MacPorts for Mac. You can also compile from source, which is the .tar.xz

It will be installed on whichever computer you run the installer on, I
assume. That's out of scope of the poppler project since we don't
provide an end-user installer, we just provide the source code.

They are command line tools so you run a terminal and type the command.
