00:01 Welcome to the Spoken Tutorial on Installation of MarcEditor on Windows.
00:08 In this tutorial, we will learn to install MarcEditor on a 64-bit Windows machine.
00:16 To record this tutorial, I’m using:

Windows 10 Pro Operating System and

Firefox web browser.

00:27 This tutorial is most suitable for library staff.
00:32 Before moving ahead, please ensure that you have the following on your machine-

Windows 10, 8 or 7,

00:43 any web browser. For eg: Internet Explorer, Firefox or Google Chrome.
00:51 In your existing library, you may have the library records in an Excel spreadsheet.
00:58 And, your library is now being migrated to Koha Library Management System.
01:05 So, all the records will need to be converted from Excel into MARC format.
01:12 It is important to know that:

the records in Excel spreadsheet will first have to be converted into MARC format and then imported into Koha.

01:26 This is because Koha does not have the provision to directly import data which is in Excel format.
01:35 Let us begin.
01:37 To convert Excel data into MARC file i.e. (dot) mrc format, we will be using MarcEdit software.
01:48 To install this software, go to the browser and type this URL.
01:55 A new page with the heading Downloads opens.
02:00 Under Current Development, go to MarcEdit 7.0.x/MacOS 3.0.x

Locate Windows 64-bit download.

02:17 However, if you have a 32-bit machine, then you should click on the link Windows 32-bit download.
02:26 To check whether your machine is 32-bit or 64-bit, go to the bottom left corner of the machine.
02:35 Click on the Start icon.
02:38 Scroll up and click on Settings.
02:43 From these icons, click on System- Display, notifications, apps, power.
02:51 This opens another window with few options on the left side.

03:00 On the same page, towards the right side, under the section PC, locate System type.
03:08 The details of your machine’s operating system will be displayed.
03:13 For my machine, it says 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor.
03:21 After reading the details, close the window.
03:25 To do so, go to the top right corner and click on the cross mark.
03:31 We will again come back to the same page, Downloads.
03:36 As my machine is 64-bit, I will click on 64-bit download.
03:42 Another new window with the heading 64-bit download opens with two sections-

Non-Administrator and


03:53 Next, I will click on Download MarcEdit 7 link at the bottom of the Administrator section.
04:02 This is because I am the designated Koha administrator of my library.
04:09 A dialog-box MacrEdit_Setup64Admin.msi appears.
04:16 We can see 2 options here-

Save File and


04:22 Click on the Save File button at the bottom.
04:26 After doing so, go to the Downloads folder of your machine.
04:31 Here, you can see that the file MacrEdit_Setup64Admin.msi has been saved.
04:40 Now, right-click on the saved file and from the options that appear, click on Install.

04:56 Another window with the name Welcome to the MarcEdit 7 Setup Wizard appears.

05:18 And from the 2 options, I do not agree and I agree, click on the I Agree radio button.
05:28 Then, click on the Next button at the bottom of the window.
05:33 A new window named Select Installation Folder opens.
05:39 It shows the path of the folder where the installed software will be saved.
05:45 Alternately, you may install this software in a different folder of your choice.

Do so by typing the required path in the field Folder.

05:56 You can also click on the tab Browse and select the desired path.
06:03 However, I will keep the folder path as it is, in the field Folder.
06:09 Now click on the Next button at the bottom of the window.
06:14 Another new window Confirm Installation opens.
06:19 Now click on the Next button at the bottom of the same window.
