Installing Validate Address Loqate Databases

This procedure describes how to install the databases used by the Validate Address Loqate stage. For instructions on installing databases used by other Universal Addressing Module stages, see the Spectrum™ Technology Platform Administration Guide.
  1. Download the database from the Pitney Bowes Software eStore using the link provided in the release announcement or welcome email.
  2. The database is downloaded as a zip file. Unzip the database before proceeding with the installation.
  3. Unzip the database file(s) to the location you want. If you are installing data from multiple zip files or discs, be sure to unzip them all to the same location. The database zip files are:
    • LQ0/DB_Setup—Contains general database setup files.
      Note: Regardless of which set of data you use, the files in LQ0 must be installed.
    • LQ1/APAC_AFR_ME-I—Contains the data for Asia-Pacific, Africa, and Middle East.
    • LQ2/Americas-I—Contains the data for the Carribbean, Central America, and South America.
    • LQ3/Europe-I—Contains the data for Eastern and parts of Western Europe.
    • LQ4/Americas-II—Contains the data for parts of North America.
    • LQ5/Europe-II—Contains the data for parts of Western Europe.
    • LQ6/Americas-III—Contains the data for parts of North America.
    • LQ7/APAC_AFR_ME-II—Contains the data for parts of Asia-Pacific, Africa, and Middle East.
    • LQ8/Europe-III—Contains the data for parts of Western Europe.
    Note: You may install databases on a mapped drive, but performance will be affected since you will be accessing them on a network rather than accessing them locally.
  4. From the location where you extracted the database files, right-click install.bat and select Run as administrator. This will launch the Loqate Installer.
  5. Follow the prompts during the rest of the installation process.
