SharpNLP Installation Instructions

1. Download Maximum Entropy Models

First, you must download the maximum entropy models that drive the NLP tools. These can be downloaded from NBin Models 1.0.0 Production and should be arranged into a folder structure as shown in this image:

2. Download WordNet

Download the installer for the Windows version of the WordNet 2.1 lexical database from http://wordnet.princeton.edu/obtain and install WordNet.

3. Download SharpNLP Binaries

These can be obtained from the latest release, currently SharpNLP 1.0.2529 Beta. Once you have unzipped the files into a folder, you must edit the .config files for the two example applications, ToolsExample and ParseTree. There is an appSettings key called "MaximumEntropyModelDirectory" whose value must be set to the folder path of your Models directory containing the maximum entropy models. In the ToolsExample, there is also a key called "WordnetSearchDirectory" whose value must be set to the folder path of the WordNet 2.1 database. If you accepted the default installation location for WordNet, this value will already be set correctly to C:\Program Files\WordNet\2.1\dict.

4. Download SharpNLP Source Code

If you want to run SharpNLP in source, you can download the source code from the latest release, currently SharpNLP 1.0.2529 Beta. You can run msbuild FullBuild.csproj to compile the various projects. See the Developer Guide for more information.
