Uninstalling Older CatReg Versions (Optional)

You do not need to uninstall previous versions of CatReg.

However, if you want to uninstall previous versions of CatReg, it is recommended that you retain the directory structure for the folders holding your previous model runs' input and output data files. Keeping those files and folders in place will maintain the functionality of your previous CatReg sessions.

Downloading and Installing the Software

  1. Download the CatReg install package (ZIP)(1 pg, 2 MB) .
  2. Locate the file you downloaded. Typical locations for file downloads are the Windows Desktop or the Downloads directory in My Documents.
  3. In Windows Explorer, open the downloaded .zip file. Drag and drop the CATREG folder from the .zip file to the directory of your choice on your computer.
When installing the CatReg application folder, you should:
  • Place the CatReg application folder (and its subfolders) in the simplest, shortest directory possible. For most EPA users, the preferred path would be C:\Users\[EPA user's LAN ID]; for non-EPA users, this could be as simple as C:\.
  • Have administrative rights for the folder.
  • Ensure there are no special characters or spaces in the folder names.
Refer to the CatReg Readme file (TXT)(2 pp, 4 K) in the CatReg application folder for details on known issues or other information that did not make it into the user guide.
