The Seaview Installer will overwrite previous versions of Seaview installed on your computer. If your curent version of SeaView is corrupt, we recommend that you first uninstall the Program from your computer.

Uninstalling Prior Versions of SeaView

To uninstall SeaView:

Select "Settings" from the "Start Menu"
Then select "Apps/Programs"
Locate "SeaView V3" in the applications list and select it.
Click on Uninstall--you will not lose data you have previously downloaded.

Step 1A: Installing SeaView from an installer file downloaded from our web site

To download the appropriate installer file for Windows, click the link above (with a high-speed internet connection only).

  1. Click on the blue "DOWNLOAD v3.5.3" icon in the instructions page.
  2. When the File Download window comes up, click on the "Save" button and save the SV3_Installer.exe installer file to your PC's Desktop/download folder or a USB drive to take to the boat computer.
  3. After the file download is complete, you should see an icon on your Desktop (or on the USB drive) named "SeaView_Installer.exe".  To start the installation, right-click on this icon and choose "Run as administrator" to start the SeaView upgrade installation. If your computer does not show this option, simply double-click on the .exe file to begin the installation process.

(OR) Step 1B: Installing SeaView from a Flash/Thumb Drive     

Insert the installation drive to a USB port on your computer.
A window should open indicating the contents of the drive.
Right-Click on the SeaView_Installer.exe Icon and choose "Run as administrator." If you do not have this option, double click on the .exe file.
The installation process should begin.

Step 2: Continue to follow along with the setup program, accepting the defaults whenever possible.  

Depending on the configuration of your system, several helper programs may be installed along with SeaView. There may be short pauses between the installations of these helpers. Be patient, and continue to follow the instructions that appear on the screen. DO NOT cancel the installation process during these pauses.

When the installation is complete, you should see a new "SeaView" shortcut icon on your desktop.
Check to make sure the program is set to run with Administrator priviledges:

Step 3: Open SeaView

Once the installation is finished, only the demo version of SeaView will be active until your SeaView software is "unlocked." SeaView will need to be "unlocked" in order to use the program other than in "demo mode" (i.e. to download data for your specific region).

Locate the "SeaView" icon on your desktop and double-click to open it.

Step 4: "Unlocking" the SeaView Software

Once the installation is finished, only the demo version of SeaView will be active until your SeaView software is "unlocked." SeaView will need to be "unlocked" in order to use the program other than in "demo mode" (i.e. to download data for your specific region).

To obtain an unlock code and data access:
You will have to have to either call or email Ocean Imaging with your 16-digit code in order to obtain an unlock code and an assigned username for data-access.

A "Welcome" window will appear indicating SeaView is operating in "Demo Mode."

Click on the "Register SeaView" button.
