Installing a Language Dictionary

Version: 3.5x, 4.x, 5.x - Scientific WorkPlace, Scientific Word, & Scientific Notebook

You can purchase language dictionaries, in addition to the one language dictionary we provide with the program. Each language dictionary requires its own serial number and license and must be installed on your hard drive (If you have already registered your language serial number and installed the license, skip to step 3):

  1. Make sure your MacKichan Software program is installed and start the program.

  2. Register the new dictionary:

    1. From the Help menu, choose Register.

    2. Select your registration method and choose Next to open the Registration Information dialog box.

    3. In the space marked "If you have serial numbers for spelling dictionaries or computation engines, enter them here", enter the serial number for your dictionary.

    4. Do not replace the program serial number you have already entered.

    5. Complete the registration process.

    6. Restart the program

  3. Install the new dictionary:

    1. Insert your program CD in the CD-ROM drive.

    2. From the Help menu, choose System Features.

    3. Scroll through the features list to find the new dictionary. It should be listed as "Licensed (not installed)" and the Install Dictionary button should be enabled.

    4. Choose Install Dictionary.

    5. When the message box appears, choose OK to close it.

    6. When the program displays the Open dialog, browse the dictionary directory on your program CD (\dict50 for Version 5) and run the program called InstallD.exe.

    7. The install program adds the new dictionary.

  4. At the prompt, restart the program.
