Installing CellarMetrics on a Mac is a very simple process. CellarMetrics is a packaged application that will reside in your Applications folder and appear as a single icon. It must remain there for future updates to be applied.  Be aware that your data resides inside of this package, meaning that you must be careful not to delete it or you will loose whatever information you have entered into the program. To archive the file you can simply copy it by holding down the Option key and dragging the file to the desired location outside of the Applications folder.  This will leave the main program in place.


*Important: Do not perform a full install if you have previously installed CellarMetrics, you will completely overwrite your data.
