Scaffold Mapping Tools: Installation Guide

How to install SPARC's scaffold mapping tool

Windows Installation

  1. Download the scaffold mapping tools installer.

Note: The scaffold mapping tool is released at a particular version, when new releases are made the version number changes. For these instructions we substitute x.y.z for the actual version number. For example, a release may have the version number 0.17.2. This number would appear anywhere x.y.z appears in these instructions.

Note: This application does not yet have Microsoft certification. This means we have to go through extra steps to install the application where we reassure Microsoft Windows that the application is in fact safe to download and use.

When this installer starts to download, click Keep for it to download completely.
