GeoGlyph 2.0 Installation Guide

Please see the following carefully.

Prerequisites

  • World Machine 64-bit Standard or Professional (2.3.7, 3.0.0.3, 3.0.0.11)
  • Windows 7 or higher
  • Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.1 or higher
  • Latest Drivers for CPU and GPU to utilize OpenCL

Installation

  1. Ensure World Machine is not running. If GeoGlyph 1.0 was installed, please uninstall it first through the GeoGlyph Manager's Install tab.
  2. Download GeoGlyph_2.0.xxx.yyy.msi (where xxx.yyy is a version number) and run the MSI file. This download can be found in 'My Account' on QuadSpinner.com.
  3. Setup will attempt to automatically detect the locations of the World Machine installation(s), as well as the World Machine Documents and Macro paths. Check to see if the paths are accurate. If not, you may need to choose them manually. See below for help with the paths.
  4. Choose the components you wish to install. In most cases, the default selection is recommended. You can also review the destination paths and modify them as needed.
  5. Proceed with installation.
  6. Once installation is complete, run GeoGlyph 2 from the Start Menu or Desktop.

Paths

  • World Machine 2.3.7 is typically installed in C:\Program Files (x86)\World Machine 2 Professional\
  • World Machine 3.0.x builds are typically installed in C:\Program Files (x86)\World Machine Professional Edition Development Version

To change the path, go to World Commands menu > Preferences > Paths in World Machine.
