Downloading and getting to work in Epi Info 7 is very simple. First, point your web browser to http://wwwn.cdc.gov/epiinfo/7/index.htm. Second, pick either the "zip" or "setup" file from the upper-right corner of the page under the "Download Links" section. In a few moments you will be prompted to either open or save the file.
Can you try downloading it directly from this link: ftp://ftp.cdc.gov/pub/software/epi_info/7/Epi_Info_7.zip
Does that process work any better?
We've had a small number of reports regarding the download issues, but it seems most are able to connect to our FTP server successfully. I'll pass along the issue to see what our IT department can do about it. I apologize for the inconvenience.
I downloaded the Setup file and executed the setup. Previosuly I have Epiinfo 3.5.3 with Epi7 Preview version installed as well (in the C:/EpiInfo directory).
I cannot seem to figure out how to start the just installed EpiInfo7 version. Nor could I figure out where the latest version has been installed. The start menu Item in EpiInfo starts up the 3.5.3 version only.
Help would be appreciated
Edit: Just realized that there is a new start menu Item CDC and that has the start Epi Ifno 7 Option.
Figured out how to integrate a menu item for starting Epi 7 from Epi 3.5.3 menu ;-)
Edited the EpiInfo.mnu file in C:/Epi_Info directory
added the following lines
Line in the POPUP "&Help" section:
MENUITEM "Epi Info 7 Ver.Oct11", EI7Oct11
Lines just before *End of Menu
Execute "C:\Program Files\CDC\Epi Info 7\EpiInfo.exe"
