Spartan '06 Installation Instructions for Macintosh
Spartan '06 can be installed on any Macintosh computer meeting these requirements:
|Minimum System Requirements|
|Intel Chip Systems Only||512 MB RAM|
|OS X 10.4.6 to 10.5 (ONLY)||20 GB disk space|
|Millions of colors|
Follow these steps for installation:
1) Click here to download Spartan '06.
2) Once the download is complete, open 06_Full_1.0.4.dmg (it should be in your downloads folder or on your desktop). It will create a disk image called Spartan 06, which you should open.
3) Drag the application Spartan 06 inside the disk image into your applications folder.
4) [Optional] Click here to download the (very large! 3GB!) Spartan Database. Open the ZIP file to obtain the Spartan Database folder. Drag this folder into your applications folder as well. You may also drag the folders "Library" and "Tutorials" from the Spartan disk image into the Spartan Database folder, if you have adequate free hard drive space and wish to use them.
5) Control-click here and select Save Link As.. to download the NetHASP license setup file and save it to your computer. Locate "nethasp.ini" in either your downloads folder or on your desktop.
6) Click on your desktop to select the finder and then follow Go->go to folder (the Go drag-down menu should be to the right of "File," Edit" and "View" in the upper left).
7) Type "/etc" into the window prompt, click "Go," and then drag nethasp.ini into the resulting (usually hidden) folder.
8) Open Spartan '06 from your applications folder.
9) You will be prompted to select a licensing method. Select NetHASP. Click continue. Spartan '06 should now be licensed and functional on your computer.
IMPORTANT NOTE: We use a networked keyserver with a campus-only firewall. In English, that means you will only be able to run Spartan if you are getting your internet service from on-campus, or are running VPN. If the program asks you to license your copy of Spartan at startup, either it is unable to talk to the keyserver (most likely you are obtaining your IP address from off campus, or have no internet connection) or all of our licenses are in use (a class is using them, on a Tuesday or Thursday, or at night Monday or Wednesday, during a lab section). If that happens, please quit (don't answer the question) and try again when you know you are on-campus with a working internet connection, and it is not the time of a normal lab period.
