ICECUP 3.1.1 upgrade

Win32 RC2 (pre-release version for most versions of Windows)

The software should run on 32 and 64bit versions of Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 10. (It is not compatible with ICE-GB Release 1.)

Release candidate status

  • The package is currently distributed as a Release Candidate for beta testing.
  • We have now released it for research purposes.
  • It has passed internal testing and has been used at UCL on college servers for two years.
  • If you have bug reports, please email the author, Sean Wallis, describing the problem as best you can.


Release Candidate 2 contains

  • a revised online Help file for ICECUP 3.1.1 converted to HtmlHelp format.
  • an alternative XP version of ICECUP for backwards compatibility.


This version, ICECUP 3.1.1, includes improvements in FTFs for intelligently searching co-ordinated elements.

The patch package is for people who already have ICE-GB R2 or DCPSE. It contains the minimum set of files that you will need to use the new version of ICECUP with your existing corpus.

Either way the instructions are essentially the same.

How to install (short version)

Download the zip file and open it. You should see a number of files. Note that this package does not include an installer program, so you will have to install the software manually.

  • First identify where your existing corpus has been installed. Then extract the files into the same location as your current copy of ICECUP 3.1. Since they have different file names, you won't overwrite anything - except the button definition file (this was updated with the 16bit gamma release of ICECUP 3.1 in 2007).
  • To re-install the corpus from a CD on a new computer, you will need to manually copy files from the CD. See the full instructions for more information.


Test the installation and clean up.

  • Try running "ICECUP 3.exe" in that directory. If you are not using Windows XP, then you can run "ICECUP 3-notXP.exe" instead.
  • To clean up after the installation, you should delete the version of ICECUP that you don't need and rename as required.

If you are stuck at any point, or you have difficulty in getting the help file to open from ICECUP, see the detailed guide below.

How to install (short version)

Download the zip file and open it. You should see a number of files. Note that this package does not include an installer program, so you will have to install the software manually.

  • We recommend you simply install all the files under a base directory such as "C:\ICE".


Test the installation and clean up.

  • Try running "ICECUP 3.exe" in that directory. If you are not using Windows XP, then you can run "ICECUP 3-notXP.exe" instead.
  • To clean up after the installation, you should delete the version of ICECUP that you don't need and rename as required.
  • You can then create desktop and menu short cuts to ICECUP as you wish.

If you are stuck at any point, or you have difficulty in getting the help file to open from ICECUP, see the detailed guide below.
