User tutorial: to be written in first or second person?

I'm writing a user tutorial but I'm unsure as to what perspective it should be written from e.g., first, second? The tutorial is a friendly guide showing how the user should do x. Example: > Viewing your file there are some special instructions you should be familiar with. > Viewing our file there are some special instructions we should be familiar with. > ..and refers to the version we want to install. > ...and refers to the version you want to install. Which is correct?
