How to install JMP Pro for Windows


This article provides step-by-step instructions for installing and renewing JMP Pro for Windows.  The instructions may vary a little depending on the version that you are installing, but should remain consistent across slightly older and newer versions.

First, you will need to click on "Extract" from the toolbar menu:

Next, select "Extract all":

Select a folder where you would like to extract the installer to and click "Extract" (the folder below is just an example, you can select any folder):

Once the files have been extracted, open the folder and you will see the following list of folders and files:

Open the "JMP" folder, followed by the "JMP_Pro" folder, followed by the "15_2" folder, followed by the "Windows" folder.  Once you have reached this folder, it will look like this:

Double-click on the "setup.exe" file located in this folder.

If you receive the following prompt, click "Yes":

How To Check Your Existing License

Open JMP and click on the "Help" menu in the toolbar, then select "About JMP" from the drop-down menu:

From the new window that opens, you will see when your license expires (or if it has already expired).  This is important to remember, because the license is only valid until the middle of August and must be re-licensed annually:


How To Renew Your License

If when you launch JMP you receive a prompt that "Your JMP License Has Expired", you will need to obtain the new license file within Canvas that has been shared by your professor.  It is important to remember that there are different licenses for different versions of JMP, so it's important to confirm you are running the latest version of JMP along with the latest version of the license.  For example, trying to renew JMP 14 will require a different license file than if you are trying to renew JMP 15.

Once you've downloaded the new license file from Canvas (which will be a text (.txt) file), you will need to launch JMP and click on the "Open License" option shown below:

You will need to browse to where you've downloaded the new license file, which will look something like the picture below.  This example is for JMP 15.2, which you can tell by looking at the first 5 characters in the file name:

Once you've selected the new license file , click "Open":

If you've selected a valid license file, you will receive confirmation like the one shown below.  You can select "Wait to Register":
