2.1 Installing MathLM on Windows

Before you install MathLM, contact Wolfram Research to register and receive a password (see Section 1.4.2 for details). You will be prompted to enter the password during the installation process. To install MathLM on Windows NT/2000/XP, you must have administrative privileges.

If the machine on which you want to install MathLM does not have a CD-ROM drive, you can run the installer off another machine on the network. To do this, insert the MathLM CD into the drive on the remote machine. Then locate the CD-ROM device on your computer and double-click the Setup.exe file in the Windows\Setup directory. Once the installer is launched, follow the same steps as for installing off a local CD.

To install MathLM on Windows:

1. Insert the MathLM CD. The MathLM CD window appears on your screen. Click the button labeled Install MathLM to a hard disk.

Note: If the MathLM CD window does not appear, the CD autorun feature might be disabled on your computer. To start the installer, open the CD-ROM drive icon and double-click the Setup.exe file in the Windows\Setup directory.

2. The MathLM Setup dialog box appears. By default, MathLM is installed in the directory C:\Program Files\Wolfram Research\MathLM\5.0. Click Browse to choose another destination directory, if desired. Click Install to continue.

3. In the dialog box that appears, enter the License ID that is listed on your certificate and your password (see Section 1.4.2 for details). Click Add to add the new password to the list of recognized passwords. Click Next to begin installing files.

4. The installation program will tell you when it is finished. Click Finish to quit the installer.

After the installation is completed, MathLM will start automatically. For information on configuring MathLM with additional options, refer to Section 5.2.1.
