Downloading and Installing the Manure Management Planner Software

Note: "Downloading" means copying files to your personal computer from an on-line service, rather than from another disk or CD-ROM.

When you're ready to download the software

Click here to download SetupMMP-0382.exe

The software is distributed as an installation program named SetupMMP.exe. When you click on the above link, your browser will prompt you with a Save As dialog box. In the Save in box, select the folder where SetupMMP.exe should be saved. For example, you might save the file to your computer's Temp folder.

Once you've selected a folder, click the Save button and downloading will begin.

Installing the software after downloading

Once you've successfully downloaded SetupMMP.exe, you're ready to install the software. In Windows Explorer, locate where you downloaded the installer and double-click it, then follow the instructions.

Tip: After you've successfully installed the software, you can delete SetupMMP.exe from your hard disk.

If you're upgrading from the 0.33 "beta" version (released 28-Oct-2013)

Once you've uninstalled the beta version, make sure you've cleared out any files in the Windows "VirtualStore" for MMP.

In Windows Explorer, navigate to C:\Users\User_name\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86) and delete the MMP 0.33 folder if it exists.

Note that you'll need to enter \AppData manually since Windows hides this folder in Explorer (meaning you won't be able to select it). Click in the path box at the top of the Explorer window to do this.
