== Installing NASPA Zyzzyva 3.2.0 ==

* Open the disk image file and drag the app to the Applications folder as indicated.
* Run the "double-click me" script included with the installer if you previously used NASPA Zyzzyva.
* Open the app in the Applications folder.
** Choose Yes, if prompted, to give the new version access to keychain data.
* Choose Edit > Preferences > Load Lexicons > Edit... and check NWL2018 and any other lexicons that you want to use.
* Rebuild databases when prompted. This step may take several minutes if you have many lexicons installed. When it completes, you’re done!
** If not prompted, you can choose Tools > Rebuild Database... to start the process.
* (Optional) Import quiz statistics and cardbox data into NWL2018.
** Choose File > Cardbox.
** Select the Lexicon - NWL2018 and Quiz Type - usually Anagrams.
** Choose Import...
** Select the lexicon from which you want to import data - for example, OTCWL2016 - and click OK.
*** If the lexicon from which you are importing data is subject to licensing restrictions, you will need to have a valid license installed. Choose Tools > Manage Licenses... to check the status of your license.
* Review the [[Media:WhatsNew.pdf|What's New notes]].
== Installing Older Versions ==
If you are installing a version of NASPA Zyzzyva prior to 3.2.0,
here is archived information about what you should do.
# If you wish to install the [[OTCWL2016]], [[OSPD5]], or [[SSWL2016]], make sure that you have a NASPA [[membership]], its ID (number) and password, and a 64-bit (Intel Core Duo 2 or later) OS X (10.7 or later) computer with an Internet connection.
# Download the [[NASPA Zyzzyva Download|installer disk image file]].
# Open the disk image file and drag the app to the Applications folder as indicated.
# Open the app in the Applications folder.
##If you see a warning about security, either click the ''Allow'' button if there is one, or else go to the ''Apple menu → System Preferences → Security & Privacy → General → Allow applications downloaded from:'' and select ''Anywhere'', then try again.
##If you see a warning about an unknown developer, hold down the Control key and click the app. Choose Open and then click Open. Zyzzyva is saved as an exception to your security settings.
# Go to ''Tools → Manage Licenses...'' and click ''Claim License...''. Choose NASPA. Log in with your [[NASPA ID]] and password.  Click ''OK'' to acknowledge that you have received a license file.  Click ''OK'' to acknowledge that you have received an activation certificate. Click ''Close'' to close the Licenses window. Click ''OK'' to acknowledge that Zyzzyva is attempting to load lexicons using the new license.
# Go to ''Zyzzyva → Preferences → General → Load Lexicons: Edit...'' and click on ''OTCWL2016''. Click ''OK'' twice to close windows.
# To check that you have OTCWL2016 loaded correctly, click the magnifying glass search button, choose the OTCWL2016 lexicon, and ask for an anagram match for ABEDHIRTT. If you see BIRTHDATE, you’re done.
# If you want to see definitions or do more complex searches, go to ''Tools → Rebuild Database...'' and choose to build the OTCWL2016 lexicon database.  This will take a while, but when it's complete, you'll have the full set of capabilities with the new lexicon.
== Issue With Mac OS 10.13 (High Sierra)==
If Zyzzyva fails to launch when you try to run it, you can fix your installed copy of NASPA Zyzzyva 3.1.0 by following these steps:
# In Finder, in the Go menu, choose Go to Folder…
# Enter /usr/lib and click Go.
# Select the file named libz.1.dylib and copy it to the Clipboard.
# Navigate to the folder where Zyzzyva is installed.
# Control-click the Zyzzyva application icon and choose Show Package Contents.
# Open the Contents folder and then the Frameworks folder.
# Paste the file that you copied onto the clipboard, and click Replace when prompted.
