Perform a manual installation of the structure applications or gain an understanding of what needs to be done.
The following steps describe the installation of the structure applications provided with DITA-FMx.
Make a backup copy of your current structure application definitions file (typically found at FrameMaker\Structure\structapps.fm for FM7.2 and FM8, or <user appdata>\Adobe\FrameMaker\<version> for FM9 and later). Store this file in a safe location before making modifications.
Extract the contents of the DITA-FMx_apps.zip file to the FrameMaker\Structure\xml folder. This will create a folder named DITA-FMx_1.2 that contains folders named Book, dtd-fmx, Map, and Topic. These folders contains the three structure application as well as the DITA 1.2 DTD files used by the applications.

Repeat step 4 for the “structapps-stub” files in the DITA-FMx_1.2\Map and DITA-FMx_1.2\Book folders.
If installing on FM 2022 (FM17), use the structapps-stub_book_1.2-fm17.fm file instead of the default “stub” file.
Save the file, then choose.
Close the file and exit FrameMaker.
Restart FrameMaker and run the DITA-FMx-Topic-1.2 for the DITA Topic Application, DITA-FMx-Map-1.2 for the DITA Map Application, and DITA-FMx-Book-1.2 for the DITA Book Application.command and select
