Instructions for installing software

 

1. Download MaraLITe32Setup.exe to your hard drive.

2. Run the executable to install.

 

By default the MARA LITe installs to C:\MARALITe\. Additional sub-directories are created, ready for the maps, malaria models and other resources, should you download these.

 

NOTE: MARA LITe requires the Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) which are normally installed with MSOffice or any database applications. If MARA LITe does not function properly, MDAC may be missing on your machine. Please download MDAC to your hard drive and install.

4. Topographic maps

Simple country-level maps that show additional topographical features (contours, rivers, roads, inland shorelines) which are not shown in the thematic maps above. Since this additional information is very bulky, and not required by most users, it is supplied separately.
