Installing Word Microscope

To set up Word Microscope, use the wm-setup-1-1-0.exe installation program.

This version is free to use for 42 days after you install it. Visit the Buying Guide page to buy a licence to run Word Microscope without a time-limit.

Typically, download and save the setup file to your computer; then run it. You will need administrator rights to install Word Microscope to the required default locations on your computer.

The download size is roughly 6 Megabytes.

Version 1.1.0 may be installed parallel to any previous test versions. You don't need to uninstall old test versions first, though you may wish to, to help keep your computer tidy.

Problems Installing

We've tested the installer successfully on Windows XP and Windows 7.

Please let us know if there are any problems during installation, as we wouldn't like anyone to be put-off right from the start.

If you see an error message saying "An error occurred while writing the key file", you may not be running the installation as administrator. (This is most likely to occur on Windows XP.) One solution is to log out and re-run the installer using a system or administrator account.

After Installation

After installing, run Word Microscope and let it guide you through what to do next.

You'll need to look under the Windows Start Menu button (usually bottom left of screen) to run Word Microscope.

Read "Help Contents" (available via Windows Start Menu or the Word Microscope Help menu) to see more ways of getting help.
