Installing LOVD is a "piece of cake". If you just want to try out LOVD to play around with it a bit, we recommend using the LOVD local install CD, which we currently have available for Windows. This LOVD local install CD will install LOVD and all necessary software on your computer in just a few minutes with virtually no effort. This CD requires roughly 200MB free space on your hard drive.
For production environments (you intend to publish LOVD on your institution's server) we recommend a manual install, for which you may require help from your system administrator.
