1. What is the website where I can download the PMP?

http://ars.usda.gov/naa/errc/mfsru/pmp

2. What versions of the PMP are available?

Version 7.0 requires Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 which must be installed before the PMP.   These are compatible with the Windows 98, NT4(SP5), ME, 2000 and XP operating systems.  The Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 can be downloaded from the Microsoft web pages and installed on your computer(http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=262d25e3-f589-4842-8157-034d1e7cf3a3&displaylang=en).

Version 6.1 is compatible with the Windows 95, 98, NT4(SP5), ME, 2000 and XP operating systems.  The newer version has some features not found in the older version (Version 7.0 Enhancements).

New models that have not yet been incorporated into a stand-alone version of the PMP are made available as Excel Models which can be downloaded.

Models are also available in other languages.  Check this page to see all models that are currently available.

3. Is there also a CD version of the PMP?

No. We prefer that you download the PMP from our website. In this manner, you can be assured to receive the most up-to-date version. If you wish to distribute a CD of the PMP, then you can download the PMP installation program you would like to have from http://ars.usda.gov/naa/errc/mfsru/pmp, then copy the downloaded files (PMP folder) to a CD.  The PMP.exe file will be inside the PMP folder as well as other files needed for proper program operation.
