When you get your DVD, follow the installation directions below.

    (If you have SpyBot, you can ignore its warning about Bancos.Santander which is due to the way we decide what to keep from old MatchMaker/MycoMatch versions using MMUpdate.exe. SuperAntiSpyware also has warnings, but the program has passed checks by leading detectors of spyware, other malware, and viruses, including Malwarebytes, WinZip Malware, Ad-Aware, Avast, and Microsoft Security Essentials.)

  2. Make sure MycoMatch/MatchMaker is not running before installing any version of MycoMatch/MatchMaker.

  3. Uninstall any previous version of MatchMaker/MycoMatch. Read the details here if you are unsure how to do this or you have edited the descriptions or added species or illustrations in a previous version.

  4. On the DVD, double click on Autorun (with a capital A, also called Autorun.exe). A window will pop up with the option to Install. Click Install. (If Run is the option, rather than install, you have not uninstalled the previous version. Click cancel and uninstall the old version, then repeat the command.) On some systems Autorun does not work. In that case double click on setup (also called setup.exe), or you can single click and press Enter on the keyboard.

  5. Nothing will happen for several minutes while the large file loads into memory.

  6. You may be asked if you want to allow a program from an unknown publisher to make changes to my computer. Choose Yes.

  7. If you encounter something unexpected, or you want the data in a particular folder, check HERE for extra installation details.
