How to Install Your DesignMerge Software

Simple instructions for installing DesignMerge Pro or DesignMerge Catalog Software

  • Step 1 – Locate Your Order Code


    In order to activate your software, you must have an Order Code.


    NEW ORDER: If this is a brand new order, or if you requested an Evaluation/Trial License, you should have received an email that contains the Order Code for your DesignMerge software and Optional Modules.


    SOFTWARE UPGRADE: If you are already running an older version of the software, you can use the same Order Code that you already have. To locate your current Order Code, select About DesignMerge… from under the DesignMerge > Help menu.

  • Step 2 – Download the Software Installer


    Next you need to download the latest software installer. Please click here to visit the DesignMerge downloads page. Please be sure to download the installer that matches your Adobe InDesign version and platform (Macintosh or Windows).

  • Step 3 – Run the Installer


    After you download the installer, go ahead and run it (please be sure to quit the Adobe InDesign application before you run the installer). At some point in the process, you will be prompted to select the Optional Modules to install.
    Optional Modules


    If you did not license any Optional Modules, please proceed to the next step. Otherwise, please select only the Optional Modules that are included with your order (such as the Linear or 2D Bar Code Modules, as shown in the above screen shot). The list of Optional Modules that you ordered will be detailed in the email you received. If you have any questions about your order, please open a support ticket.

  • Step 4 – Run Adobe InDesign and Enter Your Order Code


    After installing the software, go ahead and run Adobe InDesign. If DesignMerge has been installed properly, you will be prompted to enter your Order Code. Enter the Order Code that you recorded in Step #1. You will be prompted to enter an Order Code for every module that you installed, including any Optional Modules. Use the same Order Code for all modules.


    That’s it – your DesignMerge software is now ready to go! If you want to check out what’s new in your version of the software, please visit the Release Notes page.
