1. Privileges

If you are going to install the program on a Windows system, be sure you have administrator privileges, because the installation procedure is going to install several files in your system folders. If you don’t have such privileges, you won’t be able to install or uninstall the program correctly.

2. Download and install

On each host, download the Mnova SETUP file from our website. Then, double click on the Mnova SETUP file and follow the instructions as they appear on screen.

If you have had a version of Mnova installed previously, the installer will inform you that it is necessary to uninstall the previous version of Mnova. Make sure that this version is closed and click OK and then OK again to confirm. This will uninstall Mnova from your computer. You will get a message to inform you that uninstall was successful: click ‘Continue’.

Once you have read and accepted the terms of the License Agreement, click on “Next” and select the destination folder where the program files will be placed in your computer. We suggest that you accept all the installation defaults. Once you have chosen the Start Menu Folder as prompted by the installer, click on “Install”. This will install the application on your computer. On completing the installation, it will prompt you to select “Finish” to run the application.

3. Licensing
