Installing MeCat

This guide is intended to give all the help necessary to be able to install MeCat on Windows.

In addition to the exe-setup-file mecat-1.4.5.exe, you'll need Java 5.0 and LaTeX.

Java 5.0 can be downloaded from

If you want to be able to print, then you have to download and install LaTeX. I only tested MeCat with MiKTeX. If you use the small installation (which I recommend), you will be asked permission to download two packages when you print the first time.

After you installed all 3 programs, you can start MeCat from the start-menu.

Installing modules

The exe-files are designed to install the module. After the module is installed, it should become available the next time MeCat starts.
