Installing MNova for Windows

NOTE: If you already have MNova installed and just need to update the licensing, skip down to “Activating MNova for Windows” to simply install the 3 new LIC files.

If you’re installing fresh, continue on!

1. Download the latest version from \\ Please see the tutorial on how to access Jukebox for help getting to this point.

2. The installation application will be saved to your computer. Launch the application.

3. Click Next to continue.

4. Accept the license agreement.

5. Accept the defaults.

6. Accept the default set of plugins unless there is something specific you need or don’t want.

7. Click Install to begin the installation. (Note: You will need to have the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 Service Pack 2 installed)
If you need to install the .NET Framework, you can find the download either on Microsoft’s website or in \\chem-diamond3\Jukebox\MNova\Windows\NETFramework

8. When the installation is complete, click Finish. You must install a license before you can use MNova, so open MNova and continue on to the next set of instructions.
