Installing ePublisher Components

This section provides instructions for installing ePublisher components, including ePublisher Express, ePublisher Pro, and ePublisher AutoMap.

You must install ePublisher Express first. Then, you can install ePublisher Pro and ePublisher AutoMap. Both ePublisher Pro and ePublisher AutoMap require ePublisher Express.

If you are upgrading from a previous version of ePublisher, review the upgrade instructions. For more information, see “Upgrading from Previous Versions” on page 28.

Projects use the target settings, condition settings, variable values, and cross-reference definitions defined in the Stationery.
