Click the link below to download a copy of SppDb plant database (in zip format).
Tip: Store the downloaded file in a local drive. We suggest placing the file in your Downloads folder, not on an external or network drive.
You will possibly need to unzip the downloaded setup file using either WinZip or 7Zip (an excellent and free file compression/extraction application).
Here is a link to a copy of SppDb in .7z format.
Unzipping the setup file using Windows 10 File Explorer
- Find the desired ZIP file (from your download folder) using Windows Explorer
- Locate “Compressed Folder Tools” at the top of the File Explorer menu
- Click “Extract” immediately below “Compressed Folder Tools”
- Wait for a pop-up window to appear
- At the bottom of the pop-up window click “Extract”
Once unzipped the contents of the gCADPlus setup file should be revealed. If the file successfully unzips but does not open, you can double click the file to reveal the contents.
Install SppDb from the setup file and run SppDb in Demo mode.
Load the sample database file to test the application. The sample file contains information about 400 plant species. Your only restriction will be an ability to save a data file when you make a new species entry.
Note that as each image in the sample database needs to be downloaded from the Internet, the first time you run SppDb, scrolling records may initially appear slow. Once images have been downloaded, scrolling will return to normal speed. When you add your information to the database, scrolling records is quick.
If after testing SppDb, and you want to purchase a copy, please visit our Shop page. The cost of SppDb is $AUD35.00 (circa $USD25.00).
SppDb runs under Windows 7, 8.1, 10 and on Macs using Windows emulation software such as Crossover (version 18.0), Parallels, Boot Camp, etc.
