I have installed WinPaw on Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows 2000,
and Windows XP.
The most important thing to remember when doing the istall is:
you must have the security privileges to install files in the
Windows/System directory. Every time I could not complete an
install, it was because I did not have those privileges.
One other problem I encountered during intallation was:
Several times I was told that a certain file would not install
during the second phase.
- In most cases I OKed this and the program still worked.
Normal Installation steps using a complete set of files, not an update
Simply unpacking the CAB file to a directory MIGHT work, but
setup program will be sure everthing is installed correctly.
- Install the Windows Data Access Access Routines (mdac_typ.exe) if
they are not already installed.
- Unpack the Zip file to a temporary directory
- Read the .README file for the program
- Run the setup.exe that is in the temporary directory.
- If you do not have all the files in the Windows/System
directory that the program needs, It will tell you that the system
files need updating and copy them to that directory and register
them if necessary.
- The computer will need to be rebooted to get the
new registry into memory.
- Run the setup.exe that is in the temporary directory again.
- If you are told that the system files need updating
again, you do not have the necessary privileges. Use an
account with the privileges to update files in the
- The default Directory for WinPaw will be your Program Files
directory under WinPawIDE or WinPawEng.
- You will also get an entry for WinPawIDE or
WinPawEng in Start > Programs.
- Any questions you have on program operation should be covered in
the Help. There is a complete Technical Manual and 2 tutorials in Help.
- The program will have to be registered if you want to use it
for more than 30 days. Registration just lets me know you are
interested in the program and approximately where you live. You
will not get any spam by registering. The only email you get when
you register is the registration information and notification of updates.
