  2. Stop Spectrum Technology Platform. To do this, right-click the Spectrum Technology Platform icon in the Windows task bar and select Stop Server.
  3. Download your Spectrum Product Database (SPD) format files from Precisely using the link provided in the Precisely communication.
    Note: The data downloads as a zip file. Unzip the database before proceeding with the installation.
