Installing MARC Report for the first time

This page describes installing the program from scratch.
If you are reinstalling the program to fix a problem, please follow these steps
If you a registered user installing an update, please follow these steps.

If you do not have Admin privileges on your computer, you will not be able to install the program.
Logout and login as a user with Admin privileges, or find someone to do this for you.

To install the program, first download the software: Download MARC Report

When the download begins, a message like the following will pop up:

Select 'Save'. Do not select 'Run'. A good place to save the file to be downloaded is on your Desktop.

When the download completes, find the downloaded file and double-click on it.
This will begin the installation.

During installation, you will be prompted for a destination location, as follows:

We strongly recommend that you accept the default location.


Windows 7 x64 note: If installing on Windows 7 x64 platform, the default installation folder will be

C:\Program Files (x86)\TMQ\MARC Report

instead of the location in the previous screenshot. “Program Files (x86)” is the correct location.

Do not try to force the program to install in “C:\Program Files\TMQ\MARC Report” on the x64 platform–it will not function as designed.


Next Steps

The installation should not take more than a minute or two.

When the installation is complete:

  • If you (or someone else) logged in above as an Admin user to install the program, logout of that account, then login as the user that will use the program. 1)
  • Start the program–this step is required to finalize the installation by adding the default folders to the My Documents area and setting up the default options.
  • Starting the program for the first time will also begin the free 30-day trial period
  • Register the program if you have a registration key. If you've lost your registration information, please send us an email and we will send it back to you as soon as we can.

Notes

If you are installing the program on multiple computers, and/or are using an automated package to install the program, you may find this list of command-line switches useful.

There is no difference between the trial version and the registered version of our software. The trial version becomes registered when you enter a registration key.

1) All options in MARC Report, including registration information, are saved in the user's My Documents folder (in a subfolder named 'MarcReport'). Therefore, if an administrator installs the program, and then starts the program, and registers it, the installation steps will be complete only for the administrative logon, and not for the actual user (if different).
