Installation Requirements

See the JMP requirements at their web site

In addition to the vendor's system requirements, you must install KeyAccess (requires your computer be on the Wellesley network; if off campus, you will need to use the VPN):

  • KeyAccess for Windows (it installs into your Control Panels) and for Macs (it installs into your System Preferences)

Prep and Download JMP Pro

If you want to use JMP for administrative use, please submit a request to, otherwise follow these instructions:

  1. Verify your computer meets the system requirements above, and that you will be using JMP for academic purposes.
  2. Make sure your computer is on the Wellesley network (using VPN if off campus, Wellesley Secure if on campus with Wi-Fi).
  3. If you don't have KeyAccess, or aren't sure you have, install it.
  4. Uninstall any older version (or a version using a previous license) of JMP from your computer.
    [Note: Mac OS X requires this step, as well as searching for old JMP installation files (not data files) and removing them; if unsure what should be deleted, move files to a folder on your desktop.]
  5. Download the appropriate installer to your computer's desktop**
    Option 1 - academicstore:
    1. Connect to the academicstore server using your Wellesley username and password
      (you may need to enter wellesley\username instead of just your username)
      • on a Mac, in the Finder's Go menu, Connect to server, smb://academicstore/software
        (Got an error? try instead of just academicstore)
      • on a Windows PC: use Windows home icon Start or Run, then type \\academicstore\software
        (Got an error? try instead of just academicstore)
    2. Open the folder containing the installer: facstaffstudents, then JMP Pro
      It may take a moment for the folders to appear
    3. Open the 15 folder, then drag the Mac or Windows folder to your computer's desktop
    4. Watch the progress of the download, which will take longer on some computers for the installer, as that is very large

Option 2 for JMP 15.2 for macOS - Google Drive:

  1. Make sure you are logged in to your Wellesley Google account in the browser you're using for this download

  2. Select the installer to download for your computer: JMP 15.2 for macOS (required for Big Sur)

  3. Save the .ZIP file to your computer

  4. When the .ZIP file has finished downloading (it's large and may take a while!), right-click on the .ZIP file and unzip it

  5. Open the unzipped folder on your computer

Install JMP Pro

  1. Having watched the download until it's complete, find the installer in the folder you put on your computer:
    • on a Mac, you're looking for .pkg installer in the Mac folder
    • on a Windows PC, you're looking for Setup.exe (or Setup with a file type of Application in the Windows folder)
  2. Run that installer.  If asked, say Yes, you really want to run this. Accept all the default settings.
  3. After the install completes, launch JMP Pro
  4. If asked about registering the software, you can say you'll wait to do it later. You never need to do this.
  5. When asked, point JMP to the licensing file using the Open License button:
    point to the .txt file with the very long name in the same folder as the installer on your computer.
  6. If asked about where to save the JMP.PER licensing file, we recommend storing it in your Documents folder, but anywhere on your computer where you won't accidentally erase it is fine..
  7. Once you have confirmed that JMP Pro is working, delete the downloaded license folder and the installer.


The license file needs to be updated for JMP each year. The latest version can be found using the Option 1 instructions above for installation (in the academicstore file server under software, facstaffstudents, JMP Pro).
