Manifold System Release 8.00 Installation Files

Manifold Release 8.00 download files come in 64-bit versions for Windows x64 systems and 32-bit versions for all other Windows systems. If your Windows system does not display a prominent x64 logo during boot-up, you do not have an x64 Windows system. Note: If you have licensed a 64-bit Manifold edition that serial number will turn on either a 32-bit or 64-bit Manifold installation. If you have licensed a 32-bit Manifold edition that serial number will turn on only a 32-bit Manifold installation.

If you don't know whether you have a 64-bit or 32-bit license, check your Manifold serial number on the Serial Number Status Page to see the Manifold product it authorizes. If the name of the product does not include an "x64" your license is not a 64-bit license and must be used with a 32-bit download only. See the 32-bit/64-bit help topic for complete details on 32-bit and 64-bit licenses.

Uninstall any prior Manifold versions before installing a new version.

The above zip files include a .msi Microsoft Installer installation file, an installation.txt file with installation instructions and release notes. For a preview of the installation instructions, see the installation.txt file (right-click and choose "Save target as..."). If you are working with an older Windows system, don't forget to install .NET Framework 4.0 (.NET Framework 3.5 will not work due to Microsoft changes).

The installation file installs the potential for all Manifold System editions and extensions. The serial numbers provided determine how a particular installation launches. For example, if you provide a Professional Edition serial number it will launch as Professional Edition. If you then use the Help - Activate Extension dialog to provide a Geocoding Tools extension serial number, it will re-launch as Professional with the Geocoding Tools extension turned on.
