Installing MEAP


Download the .zip file and extract the .msi installer file.


Double click on the .msi file to begin installation.


Follow the instructions on screen.


The MEAP installer will remove older versions for you. However, as with any application, it is always safer to uninstall the old version before installing the new one. This can be done from Add / Remove Programs in the Control Panel.


If you have installed MEAP to a folder other than the default you should uninstall the old version first.


Some things to note when installing


The installer will copy a new key commands file to your key commands folder. If you have made any changes to this file you may wish to back it up first.


At  the moment, all MEAP files will be overwritten. So you may also wish to take note of your default MEAP settings.


Once installation is complete it is vital that you set up MEAP's key commands in your audio application and follow the rest of the information in the Set Up section.


If you are experiencing initial trouble with MEAP being unable to send Key Commands to your audio application it may be due to MEAP requiring administrator privileges.


An ordinary process (a process run as a standard user) can not interact with or exchange information with an admin process. So if your audio application is running with elevated privileges, MEAP cannot interact with it.


As of version 7.67.050 you can now simply start MEAP by selecting the shortcut "MEAP (Run as Admin)".


Or make sure you set MEAP to Run as Administrator:
