Purchasing M/Docs II Software is a quick process. In the first step, the software is downloaded to your computer. The second step is the installation. In the final step, you make payment to access the groups of forms you want (Library(s)).

The Download Process

When you click the download link, you will be prompted to save or run the program. Choose to save the program and choose a save location that you will easily remember, such as your desktop.

The installation process begins with the download of the software. The time required to download the software depends on the speed of your Internet connection. An estimate of the time will appear when you begin the process and will adjust through the download based on changes in your connection speed. The download size is approximately 500 MB and will usually complete in a few minutes with a fast Internet connection. With a slower DSL connection, the time may be as long as 30-45 minutes. Once the download has completed, you will find an M/Docs II setup program, in your download location that will take you to the second step, installation.

M/Docs II will run on most new computers. If your computer is more than a few years old, please review the System Requirements below for optimum performance of the software.

The Installation Process

If you do not have the appropriate Microsoft SQL Server Express components installed, M/Docs II will install that component for you. Please be aware that this will extend the installation process by several minutes.

When you have finished installing the software, you should see a program shortcut to M/Docs II on your desktop (and in the programs menu). Double-click on the M/Docs II icon to open the program.
