Version 4.1 | 4.0


   Installing the MapSpeller™ Software

The MapSpeller software and its associated files have been packaged into a digitally signed, executable setup file with the InstallShield software for an easy, reliable, secure, industry-compliant installation. The web version has thereafter been compressed into a ZIP file to reduce its size and avoid being blocked by most firewalls. To install the MapSpeller software:
  1. Log in on the PC where the software is to be installed
  2. Start the installation wizard by double-clicking on the setup.exe file from Windows Explorer
    1. If you have downloaded the MapSpeller software from, the setup.exe file is within the folder.
    1. If you are installing from the MapSpeller CD instead, insert it into the CD drive of the machine where you want to install the MapSpeller software. If the installation wizard doesn't start on its own, double-click on the setup.exe file on the CD using Windows Explorer to start the installation process.
  3. Follow the instructions of the installation wizard. It will first install the MapSpeller dependencies (a generic Windows-based spell-checking engine) and then the Esri add-in. The installation wizard will ask you for administrative privileges to install the MapSpeller dependencies.  The dependencies are shared by all users of this PC without further action. After installing the dependencies, the wizard will activate the MapSpeller add-in for the logged-in user.
  4. The next step is for anyone wanting to use MapSpeller on this computer to register.
Important Note
  1. If you are installing the MapSpeller extension in a terminal server environment (or equivalent), you must obtain a license for that purpose: see the license agreement and contact Edgetech America, Inc.
