We strongly recommend that before starting, you take a look at the following to get a feel for the basic functionality of the Editor:

System requirements

The current version of the Editor has been tested on:

  • Windows XP

  • Windows Vista

  • Mac OS 10 - Parallels running XP

We recommend your computer have at least 512 MB RAM.

The Editor is programmed in Java, and requires Java Standard Edition 6. There is a "Java" area under Windows Systems and Settings - click on Application Information to see which version you have installed.

Installation and updates

The downloadable .zip file contains a complete directory structure. Unzip the file to a location of your choosing, e.g. "C:!TaxEditor", and double-click "Taxonomic Editor.exe" to start the Editor.

To install an updated version, download the latest zip and write to the same directory, overwriting the files already on your hard drive.

Installing and manually updating the local database

When the Editor is run for the first time, the local database is created in the user's Windows directory, i.e. "C:\Documents and Settings_username_.cdmLibrary\writableResources\h2\LocalH2", or "C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen_username_.cdmLibrary\writableResources\h2\LocalH2" for our German friends.

Since it is in a different location on the user's hard drive, the local database remains untouched when the Editor is updated. This local datastore can be initialized in the Editor by navigating to "Preferences -> CDM Datastore -> Initialize Datastore" and checking the box "Initialize datastore on next application start".

The local database consists of 4 files whose names are in the format "cdm..db". To use CDM data that has been specifically prepared for this purpose, simply copy its 4 files into the "LocalH2" directory, overwriting the "cdm..db" files already there.
