Click Here for help downloading the Geo Database files.

Install from CD:

The fastest and easiest way to get the Geo Location Database file (GeoDB.gdb) onto your hard drive is to install it from a Legacy installation CD (Legacy 8.0 or higher). The main advantages of the Geo Location Database file on the CD are that it contains all six regions of the world, needs no lengthy downloading from the Internet, no importing steps, and no compression steps:

  1. Simply insert the CD and when the setup screen opens, click on Install Legacy.

  2. Follow the prompts and the Geo Location Database will be installed automatically.

Copy from CD:

Another way, which involves more steps, is to copy the Geo Location Database from a Legacy installation CD.

  1. Put the Legacy installation CD (it must be version 5.0 or higher) into your computer and when the Legacy setup screen opens, click Close to exit.

  2. Start Legacy, click on Options, then select Customize and click on the Other tab.

  3. Click the Database Maintenance button in the Customize/Other window to open the Geo Location Database - Setup window.

  1. Next click Set to open the Set Path to Geo Location Database window.

  1. Change the Look in location to your Legacy CD and then click Open, which takes you back to the Geo Location Database - Setup window.

  1. Next click on Move to open the Select a Path for the Geo Location Database window.

  1. Change the drive to C: in the bottom box, then in the top box starting with the C: drive, double-click on each folder/directory icon to browse down to the Legacy folder.  If the Geo folder shows (as in the above image) select it and click OK.  If there is no Geo folder, then click the New Folder button and in the Create Directory/Folder window type Geo and click OK.
  2. Please wait while Legacy copies the GeoDB.gdb file from the Legacy CD to your hard drive.  When finished, C:\Legacy\Geo\GeoDB.gdb will display in the Geo Location Database - Setup window.
  3. Close the Geo Location Database - Setup window and click Save to exist the Customize/Other window.  The Geo Location Database is now ready for you to use.
