Downloading the stand-alone version of the Fontes database

The Fontes application and the relevant files have been compressed ('zipped') to save time when downloading. However, the Runtime version of the application remains a very large file (37MB compressed) and you will need a good network connection to download it (this file can take anywhere from 2 to 3 hours to download with a standard modem, and from 2 to 10 minutes if you have a cable, ethernet or broadband connection). Instructions for downloading and installing the particular file you need are provided below.

We have written a brief guide to using the stand-alone version of the Fontes database, which is available in the FontesHTML folder that you will download as part of the application. This guide and other documents relating to the project are accessible under 'Information' from the main menu of the application and you will need a web browser to view them.
