MarcEdit 5.0 updates (preupdate moved into download area)

By reeset / On / In MarcEdit

Ok — I ran the preupdate through some more extensive testing and I’m happy with it.  I’ve also made a few other changes.  The biggest changes:

  1. Entity resolution — ability to set entity resolution by translation.
  2. Installation improvements — I’ve made some changes to the program so now MarcEdit 5.0 can be installed on machines where the user has Guest access.  Basically, so long as the machine has the .net framework installed and the user can create a directory, the user can install MarcEdit 5.0.  How does this work considering that MarcEdit uses the GAC?  Well, I’ve configured the program so if the GAC isn’t present, it falls back to the library in the application directory.  Seems to be working well and have confirmed from others that this seems to be working.

I’ve got a few other updates in the hopper.  The Saxon.Net code, addition of a form of the RLG report card (for EAD validation), python generation of the Script Maker, etc.

As always, the download is from: MarcEdit50_Setup.exe
